If you thought the Monday Night Wars between WWE and WCW were something, wait till you hear about the Marvel vs DC rivalry! These two comic book companies have gone head-to-head over the past 50+ years trying to gain the top spot in the world of comic books, and they’ve pulled out all stops to do it: spying, price-cutting, reneging on backroom deals, stealing artists and writers, and poaching character ideas. Reed Tucker chronicled all of the crazy stories in his new book, “SlugFest,” and now he’s sharing them with you! He & Y2J also talk favorite characters, most popular superheroes, obscure characters, and whether there will never be another iconic comic book character (like Spiderman, Batman, Superman, and Iron Man) in this lifetime.
Fun listen. (Of course Jericho was a Teen Titans fan, groan).
Retronauts Episode 245: Lemmings (with Mike Dailly)
Another month on the calendar, another interview with a game developer about a classic masterpiece they helped create. This time around, I spoke to Mike Dailly, one of the designers of DMA Designs' Lemmings. If you are over the age of 30, you have almost definitely played Lemmings; the game was pretty much completely inescapable for several years, receiving sequels and remakes on every platform imaginable.
The premise of the game—lead a host of mindless critters to safety by assigning them the skills necessary to smash their way through a series of obstacles of hazards—was fairly esoteric, but the simple interface and surprisingly adorable personality of the whole affair helped it ascend to mass-market success. Lemmings was a phenomenon, and Mike Dailly shares some thoughts on its origins and inspiration—after the Retronauts East crew (Ben, Benj, and Chris) helps set the stage by explaining the premise and appeal of the franchise, of course.
Lemmings doesn't get enough love! Nice listen for curious/nostalgic fans.
The Bill Simmons Podcast - The Undertaker on the Montreal Screwjob, Vince McMahon’s Genius, the Attitude Era, Vegas, Concussions, and 30 Years at WWE
The Ringer’s Bill Simmons is joined by the Deadman himself, the Undertaker (a.k.a. Mark Calaway), to discuss the WWE’s documentary series ‘Undertaker: The Last Ride,’ as well as stories from more than 30 years of professional wrestling, his favorite 'WrestleMania,' his relationship with Vince McMahon, recovering from major injuries, learning from pro-wrestling legends, developing his character, the best crowds, and much more.
Pretty raw interview. Great listen for fans or just anyone a little bit curious about one of wrestling's biggest remaining characters.
