Scotch & Comics 022: The Lost Episode

I looked basically like this in my search for the lost episode, except that I was sporting a magnificent beard.

Gather around, podcast listeners, as I tell the tale of Episode 22 of the Scotch & Comics podcast, also known as…The Lost Episode! Abandoned shortly after it was recorded because of its strange aural qualities, it was thought that this episode would never see the light of day, but your intrepid host Devin R. Bruce was not going to let it go that easily. After searching the world for hints about the episode’s location, he tracked it down in Marrakesh. He escaped an underground city of feral accountants and social workers with the artifact, dusted it off, and sent it off to you for safekeeping.

Thrill at the exploits of Bronze Age Superheroes in Adventure Comics #464! Gasp at the twists and turns of The Janus Directive! Shiver as your host revels in the finales of FF and Young Liars. Shudder at the strange audio happenings! All that and more in this very special episode of Scotch & Comics!

Show Notes:

  • As I say at the beginning of the podcast, there are some weird sound issues with this episode: the limiting filter was over-sensitive and cut out a lot of my quieter sounds and some unstressed syllables. It’s still mostly comprehensible but it sounds a little weird.
  • Speaking of Lost Episodes! If you want to hear me wax rhapsodic about Wildcat, please tell Kim Stolz that we should redo our Listmakers episode about superheroes. That last podcast was one of my favourite episodes we ever did, and then it got legitimately lost.
  • The first part of my Young Liars review can be found on my article This Column Has Seven Days on Comics! The Blog, originally published June 6, 2014…
  • The musical excerpts featured on this episode are: The Roots – “Ain’t Sayin’ Nothin’ New;” Ashley MacIsaac – “Devil In The Kitchen;” A.C. Newman – “There Are Maybe Ten Or Twelve Things;” Thelonious Monk – “Nice Work If You Can Get It.”

Scotch & Comics Episode 019: Avoiding The Obvious Cultural Reference

The boat looked a LOT bigger in person.

The boat looked a LOT bigger in person.

It’s been a while again since the last episode but now Scotch & Comics is officially back from vacation! Your intrepid host was gone from the “studio” (“apartment”) for the entire month of June; it was very fun and also EXTREMELY busy, and there was only one opportunity to record a podcast. And it was while onboard the Marine Atlantic Ferry from Newfoundland to Nova Scotia! And even MORE exciting, the lovely and talented Kim Stolz (who you may also recognize from The Listmakers Podcast) was on the boat as well! Devin drinks scotch, Kim drinks Coca Cola, and of course, there are also comic books! Lots of comics in a short space, as the two friends dole out their thoughts on Locke & Key, Hopeless Savages, Lot 13, Concrete, and The Human Bomb (the Nu52 version). You know what they say: if this boat is a rockin’, it must be another episode of Scotch & Comics!

Show Notes:

  • For the record, Brian Lee O’Malley’s work on Hopeless Savages was released in the middle of his run on Scott Pilgrim.
  • Music for this episode includes “Go Mental” by The Ramones, “Some Day My Prince Will Come” by Herbie Hancock, and “Smartbomb” by Huevos Rancheros.

Special Announcement: The Listmakers Podcast!

 

Hey folks. Just dropping a note here for those who mainly access me through WordPress. I can’t imagine there are any, but you never know.

I am VERY excited to announce that my friend Kim Stolz and I, after over TWO YEARS of verrrry slow planning, are debuting our new podcast! The Listmakers is a podcast about two friends trying to make sense of the world by categorizing literally everything they can think of into lists, then discussing them with each other. It’s a podcast about history, movies, science, books, cuisine, music, geography, and more. But it’s really just about friendship and good times. Part entertaining, part educational, part hot air, but all good times. The Listmakers is a podcast (and a website) that is hopefully for everyone: every episode is a new topic. I’d really appreciate it if you downloaded it and spread the word about the podcast and our Twitter feed (especially if you liked it!).

Thanks for your time, all, and just so you know, there will be another Scotch & Comics episode soon. Also: I may have some exciting S&C-related news in a couple weeks! Keep Watching The Pubs!
