The BAM CRew (Bethany, Alison, and Michael) are back and once again the show they cover, Superman and Lois, is on hiatus. Usually they would pick another bit of Superman live action or animation to discuss in leiu of episode commentary, but this time Michael used one of the few connections he has to secure an interview with former writer’s assistant on Superman and Lois and now staff writer on Superman and Lois Adam Mallinger.
Adam talks about his history as a Superman fan, his time in the writers room of Superman and Lois, some really cool behind the scenes stories about how the big Steel reveal happened, how the episode he wrote evolved from the original idea to what was seen on the air, the one great unused idea Adam had for Superman defending the farm from the possessed Kryptonians, and so much more. While the discussion spoils episodes that have already aired there are no spoilers for future episodes. Because that’s not how this show rolls.
And here’s that issue of Superman with Tim Drake on the cover.
Finally, here are some links to Adam’s blog with more information on how the episode he wrote came together, how the Steel reveal happened, and that college television show he talked about. Just click on the links above.
The Superman and Lois Tapes can be found on both Apple Podcasts and Spotify. The show can be reached by email at [email protected]. You can also leave comments here or over at the Facebook page for the show, which you can get to by clicking this link.
The main theme for the show is “Heroes” by the awesome Mike Schmidt. You can find his work over at Speed Force Music.
Next Time: The Crew continue their hiatus with…something. Don’t look. Just listen. They ain’t saying what it is. Just…trust them.
