I wanted to do this podcast to show how articulate my nephew is on his own. So that when I quote his ideas or insights in written reviews people don't think I'm inflating his eloquence. I love what he says about the series. I'm very thankful I can discuss books with him.
There is a great website for Chi's Sweet Home (http://www.chisweethome.net/ )
You can watch the anime of Chi's Sweet Home free on Crunchyroll (http://www.crunchyroll.com/chis-sweet-home)

***Spoilers Alert Spoilers Alert Spoliers Alert Spoilers Alert***
With this episode, I hope to bring the podcast back to its intended biweekly schedule. I can’t do a weekly podcast because of the amount of time it takes to edit these. Look for new episodes every other Thursday. I’ve also given in to convention and started numbering the episodes.
Here is KC's review of the first box set of Batman: The Brave & the Bold

Here are some factual corrections.
1) The Golden Age Spectre did kill his villains
2) The 70’s Spectre was written by Michael Fleisher and drawn by Jim Aparo
3) The Green Latern/Green Arrow stories of the 70’s were written by Denny O’Neil and drawn by Neil Adams
