Hey! It's our 50th episode! Wow!
First of all, I apologize for the weird sound. I don't know why, but Dave and I both sound like we're recording via Skype, when in fact both of us were in the same room using my very nice microphones and mixing board. I did my best trying to fix it in post, but it's still not great.
But anyway, 50th episode!!!!
To celebrate, we decided to share our secret origin stories (how we got into comics and super heroes). And we also announce the launch of the Living Between Wednesdays Summer Book Club!

I'll leave you now with some of the crazy things Dave and I listed as influences on this week's podcast:
The 1980s 'I am Astar, a Robot' War Amputations of Canada PSA
CBC Halifax's Switchback
Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue
Archies: Return to Riverdale
I could not find any evidence of a Little Lulu live action television movie. I assume it was a fever dream Dave had. Prove me wrong, internet!
