And here’s how the Longbox Graveyard Podcast ends — not with a bang, but with Iron Man 3!
This image proved oddly appropriate for my whole podcasting experience …
Actually, that isn’t fair.
I had a GREAT time being a podcaster, and this final episode — when comics pal and Iron Man aficionado Chris Ulm and I dissected Iron Man 3 — was just one more good time among many.
I greatly appreciated my listeners during My Podcast Year, and of course I was especially indebted to Mo Kristiansen at We Talk Podcasts for producing my show. But after a year of monthly podcasting, I had to admit that it wasn’t my passion — at least, not to the same extent as blogging here at Longbox Graveyard.
And so I let it go.
But it was fun while it lasted!
Join me one last time for … the Longbox Graveyard Podcast!
(And thanks to all of my listeners — past, present, and future).
Sure, a podcast review of The Dark Knight Rises may seem like it is hopelessly out of date … but trust me, there’s more to it than that.
This podcast records my moderate disappointment with the concluding episode of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, but also looks at why we fans attach so much importance to these major geek events. At times I feel held hostage by the creators who have “appropriated” these icons that I erroneously feel belong to me!
I’ve always had affection for Marvel’s “cosmic” heroes, and now Hollywood is catching up with me, thanks to the pending big-screen debut of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Listen in as we journey out into the cosmos, Marvel heroes style!
