This is an amazing podcast! I have been listening for a long time (I came to the show from Bullpen Bulletins), and have enjoyed every episode. This show is often the highlight of my comic’s week. The podcast is driven by the three co-host, who are friends and remarkably knowledgeable about comic books. Below is a quick introduction to each of them with loose reference to Freud’s structural model of the psyche:
Vince B.: Vince is the id of the show. He knows art at a molecular level. Vince has encyclopedic knowledge about comics as a medium. To a first time listener he may sound a bit sexist and fixed in his ways, but this would be selling him short. Listen carefully; everything he says goes back to the art. If you pay attention and are willing to be challenged, you will learn something new.
DAP: David is the super-ego and heart of the show. I’m not sure if the show would work without him. He may not speak as much as the other co-hosts, but when he does it is always meaningful. David is also crazy passionate about the books he loves. It is infectious. For example, growing up I never cared much for Teen Titans. However, after years of David talking about the Wolfman & Perez run I gave the book another shot with the context provided by DAP. I love Teen Titans.
Jason: Jason is the ego of the show. He is super organized and is often the most measured in his reflections on a book. Personally, identify the most with him. In the early episodes, Jason was mainly a Marvel zombie but as the show has progressed he has developed an eclectic taste in comics. My comic book taste has shown a similar progression. However, what is great about Jason is that he still appreciates good comics from Marvel and DC. Furthermore, I have never been disappointed by a book he has recommended.
