It’s a common practice in comic book tales that a character dies and then, by some miracle, is resurrected. Looking at Batman’s incredible 76 year history, many of the Batman Family members have died and come back to life, sometimes even by surprising the audience. In recent New 52 comics, Bruce Wayne’s Batman apparently died alongside the Joker and now another is the Dark Knight of Gotham City. But this isn’t the first or even second time that Batman has died in DC Comics. In this week’s podcast, Londyn and co-host Adam Silverstein will look at ten different times our hero has died or has seemingly died in comic books in the last 76 years of Pre-New 52 continuity. The Batman represents the ultimate human, with peak physical and mental capacities yet he still has emotions and flaws. This list will demonstrate that even this dark vigilante cannot hide forever from his own humanity or from the glooming shadow of the Grim Reaper.

Meltdown Presents: Meltdown Moms: #03 – Black Girls on #Oscarssowhite

It’s award season which means we’re all going to be talking about the best dressed,  the most annoying speech, and pervasive discrimination. Hooray! Meredith and April talk with Shauna Robinson and Tash Gray—two working screenwriters (and formerly working) and women of color in the Hollywood trenches. The ladies get real as we all dissect how, once again, only white actors received Oscar nominations for their work, and films with more diverse casts continue to be ignored by the Academy even while making serious bank at the box office. Shauna and Tash go deep on the issue that is rocking Hollywood as we get ready for the biggest night of the year. Gray and Robinson’s perspectives from writer’s rooms as the only black women in the room will open your eyes wide and make you question how relevant the pomp and circumstance of Oscar night really is in 2016.

Meltdown Presents: Meltdown Moms #02 – New Years Resolutions!

It’s a new year where moms make resolutions we probably won’t keep. Meredith and April talk mom-olutions and why we so often times fail within weeks of swearing screen time will only be allowed on weekends, and we’ll have marital relations more often than just when our kids are on screens. Why are new year’s resolutions so hard to keep? And why are moms the only ones vowing to stop yelling at the kids every January? Tune in to hear how the Meltdown Moms intend to keep this year’s promises, how their husband’s NY rez’s differ dramatically from their own, and why the Meltdown Mom of the Week makes us want to put Harry Connick, Jr. in the naughty chair.

Meltdown Presents: History of the Batman with Londyn! #032: Batman Psychology 101 with Dr. Andrea Letamendi

The character of Batman and his mythology is one of the most complex and exciting in all of fiction. This week Londyn and co-host Adam Silverstein sit with clinical psychologist and Batman fan Dr. Andrea Letamendi, host of the “Batman: The Animated Series” podcast “The Arkham Sessions“! In a discussion that highlights comic book and other DC Comics visual media stories, we approach classic characters such as The Joker, Jason Todd and Two-Face and analyze their relationships with Batman and what it means as a whole within the Batman universe. We also tackle questions such as if Bruce Wayne’s vigilante crusade is not only healthy but seen as for the greater good of the citizens of Gotham. Join us as we dive into the intense mind of the Dark Knight!

Meltdown Presents: History of the Batman with Londyn! #030: Backup Batmans (and Londyn LIVE!)

Billionaire Playboy Philanthropist Bruce Wayne’s alter ego is that of the Batman since his debut in Detective Comics (Vol 1) 27 back in 1939. But throughout his 76 years in DC Comics, other characters within the DC Universe have taken up the mantle of the cape and the cowl mostly in Bruce Wayne’s absence. In this episode, my co-host Adam Silverstein and I discuss the several figures in Batman comics that have been Batman and what each uniquely brought to the persona.

We’re also joined by VOIS agent Pat Culley who gives us a full demonstration of the (free) VOIS app allowing History of the Batman to be broadcast live and take callers live on the air for the first time ever! If you missed it two weeks ago, listen now! And get the VOIS app to be notified of broadcasts in the future that YOU can call into and be LIVE with Londyn!
