Introducing Captain Atom



DC Bloodlines Podcasts – Power of the Atom Podcast #3 – “Introducing Captain Atom”

The third episode of POTAcast takes its cues from the blog and turns over its space/numbering to co-star Captain Atom! We cover the debut of Charlton’s Atomic Age Action Hero in March 1960’s Space Adventures #33, near-identically paralleling the anthology bow of the Tiny Titan (off by one issue and predating it by more than a year!) courtesy of Joe Gill and Steve Ditko.

We couldn’t get anything good ready for podcast, so “enjoy” a recording session with the microphone and digital mixer set-up that came after we were talking into cheap headsets but before we got quality equipment, not that Frank didn’t waste hundreds of dollars on this non-returnable crap. It’s difficult to hear, which is why it was shelved, but in a pinch this golden turd will have to doo. Most of the discussion centers on the documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune, about the aborted 1970s loose gonzo adaptation of Frank Herbert’s revered science fiction novel. About three-quarters of an hour in, we drift off into random gab involving such disparate flicks as Wayne’s World. The really funny stuff involved masturbation shame and otherwise going dark, but things got a little personal and we started dropping each other’s real names and those of ex-girlfriends and even penis nicknames, so Conservative Mac made us take all that out. Your loss!
