So…some of you might be wondering what happened to the Fortress. Some of you already know, but for the people that don’t here’s the deal. Back at the beginning of 2017 I announced that I was going to be putting all of the podcasts that I produce/host/co-host that aren’t already part of a podcasting network into my own network. I decided to call it The Fortress of Baileytude Podcasting Network because it seemed like a good name and I already had the whole Fortress of Baileytude thing going thanks to this site. The original plan was that I would build a whole new site for the Network and run things out of there but it occurred to me that doing so would be a lot of work and the end result would be having yet another site to maintain.
It’s not that I’m lazy. I’m just busy and real life can kick me in the teeth at the drop of a hat.
So, I decided that the best thing I could do would be to revamp this site to be the official home of The Fortress of Baileytude Podcasting Network. This meant suspending the Superman posts but in all honesty I was never consistent in getting those out anyway. It wasn’t an easy decision but for this Network to be given a chance I thought it was for the best.
With all of that out of the way, welcome to The Fortress of Baileytude Podcasting Network. This site is still a work in progress as I get everything together but ultimately this will be the one stop hub for (as previously mentioned) all of the podcasts I produce/host/co-host that aren’t part of another network. For the moment these shows include:
Views From The Longbox
From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast (which I host with Jeffrey Taylor)
The Overlooked Dark Knight (which I host with Andrew Leyland)
Another show will be starting up very soon and when certain ducks fall in a row concerning my wife I’ll be adding a fifth show to the Network. Two of the shows (Views and Overlooked) have their own sites and you can access them by clicking the logos to the right. All of the other shows will be hosted through this site though you can get to individual episodes posts through the links provided. All of the shows have their own RSS feeds though if you want to subscribe to all of the shows you can do that through the Master Feed I created. You’ll also notice that Bailey’s Batman Podcast has a link too. This doesn’t mean the show is coming back but I did want it to be listed as part of the Network.
Again, this is all still a work in progress and thanks to real life getting in the way it will be a month or so before everything is finalized. I appreciate everyone that has sent messages of support and I also appreciate their understanding in getting this off the ground.
To those that liked the Fortress when it focused only on Superman I apologize. All of the old posts will still be available through the Categories section and I’m leaving The Death and Return of Superman page up because I’m really proud of that and want to keep it alive.
And that’s pretty much that. I hope everyone enjoys the new network and site and I look forward to bringing you regular content in the weeks and months to come!
Please excuse “the mess” as I get the new site up and running. Big changes are coming to the Fortress, one of which is a sticky post at the top of this page, and by July things will be firmly in place.
Welcome to the two hundredth and ninth episode of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast! This podcast has a simple premise; examine just about every Superman comic published between Man of Steel #1 in 1986 to Adventures of Superman #649 in 2006 in an informative and hopefully entertaining format.
Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.
The Death of Clark Kent continues!
Technically The Death of Clark Kent ends during this episode but to Mike and Jeff this story isn’t over until Lois and Clark are reunited, so consider this the penultimate Death of Clark Kent episode. The final showdown between Conduit and Superman (and we do mean FINAL showdown) goes down in Action Comics #711 and you know it’s a serious fight because Superman goes shirtless right before the bows get thrown. Then in Superman: The Man of Steel #46 Superman goes up against an entire installation full of Conduit’s minions and it does not go well for those minions. This is followed by the boys looking at Superboy #17 (which was good) and New Titans #123 (which they barely talk about). Finally Mike and Jeff hop in a cab, pay the $6.50 and head to a segment they call Meanwhile, At The Daily Planet.
During the episode Mike mentions the Superman blog Stephen Lacey used to run called World of Superman. Some of the images are gone but all of the content was there so give it a look by clicking on this link!
