Presenting a joint podcast production with Peter from The Daily Rios podcast (where you can also listen and subscribe to The Legion Project), where we will discuss, issue by issue, the 1984 Legion of Super-Heroes (volume 3) series affectionately known as the “Baxter run”.

In this episode we discuss Legion of Super-Heroes #24: “Suspicion” and (the backup tale) “Togetherness”. The Legion’s suspicion about Sensor Girl finally reaches a tipping point, Mentalla disappears from the Legion Academy, Emerald Empress recruits a new member for the Fatal Five, and Lightning Lass and Timber Wolf have a heart to heart. Plus, listener feedback, Who’s Who entries, Legion tech in Booster Gold #6, and more!

LBR presents Center Seat, a Star Trek podcast

Direct Download (57:08)

Stardate 2020.190. Star Trek was my first fandom, way before comic books, and while I have included Star Trek related material in the podcast feed before, I decided to rebrand those shows as Center Seat, my new Star Trek podcast. This episode I talk about why I love Star Trek and why it matters to me.

Future episodes will include movie and tv series commentary, as well as other topics. I hope you will join me on this strange new adventure. If you like Star Trek, please tell others about this new imprint of the Longbox Review podcast.
