I really should have gotten on this earlier when this forum came back, but quite honestly, I thought this forum was the temporary forum until we got a more "permanent" home. Apparently I'm an idiot. lol
Well, now that I've got the "reigns" of the LanternCast (as it were) I figured all sorts of social media blitzes are better than none.
So what's the LanternCast? It's a podcast about EVERYTHING Green Lantern related. It was started by Jim Ford (choanata on the forums) and Dan Kurtzke (gland on the forums) over 5 years ago. I joined later on. Recently the guys got burned out on GL and such and, with Geoff's departure from all things GL, it seemed like as good of a time as any to retire and hand the reigns over to me. So who am I? I'm Chad Bokelman. I like the 60's and 70's (politics, youth culture, pop culture, comics, music, etc.), writing, comics (mostly DC, mostly pre-New52) and more. You want to know more, just ask me. I brought on friend of the show Mark Marble as a new co-host and we've been returning to "Current" issue reviews of all lantern related titles. So far we've got 3 episodes out with the new team (5 if you count my 2013 Wizard World Austin Interviews and my GL/GA spin-off).
We're on iTunes and Stitcher and you can listen/download episodes from our website
as well. You can connect with us on Facebook and Twitter (just search our name). You can email us at [email protected]
and leave us a voicemail at 708-LANTERN.
Now that that's out of the way, all future posts on this thread I'll be sure to make just posts about new episodes. And PLEASE feel free to leave feedback for various episodes in this thread as well! We LOVE feedback and often read it on nearly every episode! (well, now that the new podcasting team is in place)
I even made that nifty image. Cool huh? I consider it one of my best photo editing works, even if it IS simple to most people.
Anywho, episode ONE was about the history of the comics industry and the creation of the Comics Code Authority. I had @MikeGallagher on to discuss this topic. It was epic. I planned on covering this material to help people unfamiliar with the 'Green Lantern/Green Arrow' series to understand WHY it was so important to the comics industry.
NOW: Episode 2 has been posted. Featuring....
INTERVIEWS WITH BOTH NEAL ADAMS AND DENNY O'NEIL!!!!!!!
That's right. BOTH. (that's why it took so long between episodes. I always planned on these interviews being the shows episode 2) I'm super excited. Listen in HERE.
Don't forget you can find us on iTunes and Stitcher as well.

It seems alot of us are posting our thoughts on Age of Ultron lately and we at The LanternCast are no different!
LanternCast Episode #219 – SPOILER FILLED Age of Ultron Movie Discussion!
The follow up sequel to one of the biggest movies of all time has released and, surprise surprise, the guys have some thoughts on it! So, rather than squeeze it in to a regular episode and potentially spoiling the listeners, we devoted a WHOLE EPISODE to it! So what did Mark end up thinking about the Vision? According to Thor-fan Chad, who is and is not worthy to wield Mjolnir and when? What were the best moments? Well, listen in and we’ll fill you in! Be sure to chime in on our voice-mail at 708-LANTERN!
