Best DD Podcast, with a caveat

By Tegthethird - Mar 31 2019
Read more
If you love Daredevil and/or want to hear thoughtful and insightful commentary from someone who is passionate about the character, this is a must listen. I’ve just listened to every episode and I hope there will be more. When Dave is actually reading and commenting on Daredevil comics this is a 5-star podcast, but unfortunately Dave often gets bogged down by his own expectations and reading plans for the podcast that don’t pan out, and he spends significant chunks of episodes detailing all of his mental processes on those matters. This can be wearying, but part of that I’m sure has to do with me binging every episode.

What a Labor of Love!

Dave clearly adores the Daredevil character. His passion shines through each and every episode. I’ve listened to his coverage of Frank Miller’s titles as I’ve read them, and I’ve found the podcast a terrific companion piece! I only held off on awarding the full five stars because of the airtime dedicated to emails. In all honesty, those segments draw my interest far less than the focus on the comics themselves. Regardless, I sincerely appreciate the impressive amounts of preparation and care Dave clearly dedicates to this labor of love! Thank you, Dave!

In this commemorative, Milestone 105th episode (the numbering will be explained) Dave returns to the early stages of Matt Murdock's career as Daredevil. But, this time by way of a graphic novel.

Dave cracks open Daredevil: Season One, to revisit the very origins of The Man Without Fear, once again. While the graphic novel is based on the original first six issues of Daredevil, there are new plot threads to be explored.

Is it another Daredevil: Yellow, or does the book have legs to stand on?

Dave also takes some time to reflect on the milestone 105 episodes that the show has reached. Yeah, the milestone is five episodes late, but it's still a milestone.

Podcast cover

75 years ago, a legend was born out of the minds of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby.

Since then, Captain America has been Marvels brightest star, and guiding light. Whether it is leading TheAvengers, or fighting Nazi forces, he is the elder statesman, and de facto leader of the Marvel U.

But, before that, he was Steven Rogers, a puny boy from New York. Jon M Wilson and J David Weter take an extensive look at the childhood and ultimate destiny of the man who would be Captain Amercia.

Consulting (possibly) a record amount of comics, they piece together the full tale of, and behind, operation rebirth to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Sentinel of Liberty.
