Episode 05 – Interview with Jeff Farham

Episode 05 – Interview with Jeff Farham

This interview with Jeff Farham of The World’s Mightiest Marvel blog amounts to a winding conversation which addresses Captain Marvel from multiple angles. We touch on the television series from the 70s, being too tight to buy important issues, and even the religious metaphors present within the Captain Marvel character. Hopefully the center will be found in the Golden Age Captain Marvel and serve to help people connect with the character more.

One note: the recording is really choppy early on. I think you’ll find it settles down an becomes an easier listen pretty quickly though.

Episode 00 – Welcome to the Shazamcast!

Welcome to the Shazamcast, a podcast dedicated to Earth’s Mightiest Mortal, Captain Marvel of the DC Universe.

This podcast, and its related site, exist because (a) Captain Marvel is a wonderfully compelling, enjoyable character and (b) too few people are aware of this fact.

As a result the Shazamcast is on a mission to connect fans of Captain Marvel and raise the profile of this figure to the kind of significance he deserves so that more can enjoy his exploits.
