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!
- 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.
