Comics in the Golden Age Podcast

Comics in the Golden Age Podcast guides listeners through the best years of comics; sharing stories about the writers, illustrators, and characters of the classics.

Launched in 2015, the podcast is a platform to discuss specific comic stories that originated during the Golden Age of comics (1938-1955). Hosts Chris and Mike educate listeners about events of the time and provide a deep understanding of how they influenced the characters and the stories in comic books. The conversations are earnest; Chris and Mike have a reverence for their subject matter which translates into interesting details and little-known facts. Listeners may also find new characters and storylines of interest.

As the popularity of podcasts has exploded, so too has slick production of shows. Comics in the Golden Age Podcast bucks that trend. Chris and Mike’s love of comics comes through conversations that are more likely to happen over the kitchen table than in a production studio.

Gateway episodes include Weird Sciences and Fantasies (episode 11), The Incredible Invaders (episode 27), and Patsy Walker (episode 45 ).

Discover books, magazines, podcasts, and blogs that celebrate toy history, pop culture, and collecting.
