Good Eggs

By ChaoticRambler - Sep 23 2019
Read more
The original Good Eggs. If you’re looking for a crash course on a particular comics property, this podcast is it. If you want the perspective of someone who isn’t as inoculated against the weird malarky that comes with the genre, this is it. Two sweet humans dive through comics history, and attempt to summarize its twists and turns in an entertaining fashion

Amazing, but hard to hear.

Love this podcast, particularly for getting a taste of unfamiliar characters who connect with series’ that I’m reading ATM. It’d be five stars except that as someone who is hard of hearing, the audio quality makes it hard to hear at times even on high volumes.
