Daily Planet Update: Is Henry Cavill BACK?! (Plus: Son of Kal-El Reviewed!)

June 21, 2022

This week Alan and Rob catch up on a few current Superman-related topics including the possible return of Henry Cavill to upcoming Superman movie projects; the trailer for 'Black Adam' and their thoughts on the first few issues of the highly popular "Son of Kal-El" comic. 

Please note: This episode was recorded in the days prior to Tim Sale's tragic passing so some of our discussion is now sadly out of date, but we have made the decision to include our tribute to him as a mark of respect to this late, great legend.

Issue #20 - The Most Important Superman story EVER? (feat. Michael Bailey)

June 10, 2022

This week Alan and Rob are joined by veteran podcasting legend Michael Bailey to discuss what may be the most important Superman story ever: The Clan of the Fiery Cross - the landmark radio serial that delivered a crushing blow to the legitimacy of a very real hate organisation. 

 

Join us as we talk all things radio - the magic of Bud Collyer's dual performance as Clark and Superman, the way the stories and episodes still hold up today), the hilarious ads for 'Kelloggs Pep' and even how the radio stories relate to other versions of Superman. YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS THIS ADVEN-TURE FELLOWS AND GIRLS (AND NON-BINARY FRIENDS!).
