The Podcast of Oa: A Green Lantern Podcast
The official podcast of The Blog of Oa, a Green Lantern fan website. The show will cover news and reviews of Green Lantern as the characters appear in all forms of media. The show's website is www.blogofoa.com

In episode 59 of The Podcast of Oa co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey return from a brief hiatus to talk about the Green Lantern universe in the wake of the revelations of Lights Out. The two discuss Green Lantern #25 and 26 and Hal Jordan's new direction for the Green Lantern Corp - ridding the universe of the rest of the emotional spectrum. John Stewart's Zero Year origins leave both fans wishing that more time was spent on John's past than a Batman tie-in and find the teased showdown between John and Hal a bit anticlimatic. To celebrate the holiday season Myron offers up a new feature, the Larfleeze List, showcasing great gifts for Green Lantern fans.

Co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey are back with episode 52 of the Podcast of Oa with news and commentary about the Green Lantern universe. Bill continues to trumpet the potential for a Kyle Rayner/Carol Ferris relationship as Relic makes his presence felt in Green Lantern: New Guardians #22. Myron reports out on Green Lantern news announced at this year's San Diego Comic-Con and provides some critical commentary pointed at DC Entertainment and their film plans for the DC Universe. The second issue of Larfleeze fails to win over either Myron or Bill and we have comments from listeners that as always stimulate some fun conversation.

Episode 51 of The Podcast of Oa continues the conversation about the new era of Green Lantern comics with co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey. Relic enters the picture in Green Lantern: New Guardians #21 and the hosts have differing stances on the possibility of a romance between Kyle Rayner and Carol Ferris. Red Lanterns #21 is also a topic of discussion and listener feedback stimulates more dialogue about the role of Green Lantern in the DC movie universe. The initial issue of Larfleeze underwhelms both Myron and Bill and conversation then turns to the one-two punch of Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps.

On Podcast of Oa Episode 49 Co-hosts Myron Rumsey and Bill Giancoli talk about Green Lantern #20, the issue that effectively wraps up Geoff Johns' historic run that has come to define a whole new era in Green Lantern's long and storied history. Myron and Bill share their favorite moments from the conclusion to the Wrath of the First Lantern story arc and how it sets the stage for the new creative teams which will step in to leave their mark on what has become one of DC Comics' tentpole franchises.

Co-host Bill Giancoli returns to the Podcast of Oa for our 48th episode. Myron Rumsey discusses recent events in the Green Lantern universe such as the recent SMGO.TV pledge drive and comments that Geoff Johns has made about big announcements coming regarding DC characters in film and television in July at the San Diego Comicon.

We talk about the 19th issues of both Green Lantern: New Guardians and Red Lanterns as well as the ill timed Green Lantern Corps #20. Listeners who have not read the issue yet should skip this section since we talk about some of the details about the conclusion to the Wrath of the First Lanterns story that are recounted in the issue and it will spoil the ending to the story.

Episode 47 - SMGO.TV Interview

Myron Rumsey is joined by SMGO.TV founders Dave and Chehin for an exclusive interview about their attempts to revive both Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice through crowdsourcing.  The two recently met with Warner Brothers about the initiative and were subsequently denied an initial green light to move forward, however the fact that the effort was taken seriously should provide fans with motivation to continue our efforts.

Co-host Myron Rumsey is joined by special guest co-host Sean Whelan from the Raging Bullets podcast for episode 46 of the Podcast of Oa. Sean and Myron talk about the recent controversy surrounding the alleged plan to kill of John Stewart and comment about Warner Brothers recent statements about an upcoming announcement addressing their plans for movies based on DC Comics properties.

This episode catches us up with the most recent issues of the Green Lantern family of books, covering the eighteenth issues of New Guardians and Red Lanterns, plus the nineteenth issues of Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps. Along the way Sean names two more of the lesser known divisions of the emotional spectrum and we talk a bit about the impact that the Internet has had on comics and the relationships between fans and creators, death in comics and ways that the digital format could be leveraged to provide content that might not work as well in print.

Listeners of the Podcast of Oa join us for episode 45 in a Google Hangout where we talk about the finale episode of Green Lantern: The Animated Series, "Dark Matter". And as happens whenever a group of fans get together the conversation shifts between the series, the comics and the Green Lantern motion picture. Near the end of the show we are joined by Jared Aiosa, owner of Heroes You Mom Threw Out Comics and we talk about comics in general, the impact of digital comics and the good, the bad and the ugly about comic book stores. Please note that the audio quality fluctuates based on the connections between the particpants and background noise, so there are some irregularities in the audio of the conversation which cannot be avoided.

Co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey are back with another episode of the Podcast of Oa and this one is guaranteed to be a little different than the rest. In episode 41 we talk about the sweet sixteen issues of Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps and Green Lantern: New Guardians plus we touch briefly on the first issue of Keith Giffen’s new Threshold series that features a Larfleeze backup story.

Green Lantern: The Animated Series takes center stage with conversation about Sinestro’s debut in the animated universe and the series defining moment in “Loss”. This episode was recorded on the day that the Cartoon Network revealed their plans not to renew the show and you can witness Myron’s completely uncensored feelings about the situation as he unleashes the wrath of the Seafoam Lantern - donning a Red Lantern ring in what is assuredly not a “safe for work” venting where nothing is safe from his rage!
