The Podcast of Oa is back for their 100th episode and co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey take a look back at their favorite moments over the past five years.  There's plenty of listener feedback since Myron was sidelined with pneumonia and the duo get caught up with commentary on all the Green Lantern books since the last episode.

A voicemail echoes fan discontent on the recent announcements regarding the Green Lantern universe post DC:Rebirth and Myron adds his own perspective to the conversation.  Bill also pulls the Kilowog Challenge out of mothballs - can he stump Myron this time?

Co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey are back with episode 99 of The Podcast of Oa with conversation about February's Green Lantern books.  With DC Comics' recent announcement about their Rebirth initiative and all the Green Lantern books being replaced with two twice-monthly series both Myron and Bill have opinions on what these books might be like and how it impacts the current series.

Both Bill and Myron felt that the conclusion to the Sonar arc in the main Green Lantern title didn't provide the satisfaction it could have, with neither Sonar nor Hal Jordan ever coming face to face.  Both hosts found themselves routing for the Sinestro Corps as they took down the Paling and wondering how it will effect the way Earth's hero community will view the yellow lanterns.  There were some surprising moments in this month's Edge of Oblivion issue along with the announcement that Ethan Van Sciver would be leaving the series with issue three to focus on DC: Rebirth.

Co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey are back with episode 97 of The Podcast of Oa as they two talk about a strong month for the Green Lantern corner of the DC Universe.  Before going to the normal comic book reviews Myron announces that the show can now be found on Soundcloud and will soon be coming to Google Play Music and Spotify.  Myron shares his observations from the recent The Dawn of the Justice League television special and how he believes that while they didn't say too much about Green Lantern's cinematic future DC Films gave clues to their direction via visual cues.  The two talk about the recent DC Rebirth announcement and give thought to what it might mean for Green Lantern.

In their comic book conversation both Myron and Bill felt that Robert Venditti has begun to hit his stride with the main Green Lantern title and that this month's issue 48 really provided Hal Jordan with a new type of adversary.  And continuity hiccups aside both felt that the debut issue of Edge of Oblivion was a good one.  Sinestro #19 was also a hit with both Bill and Myron with Cullen Bunn really providing an event level story in the ongoing series.

Episode 94 of The Podcast of Oa put the spotlight on Sinestro this time around.  Co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey talk about the the two most recent issues of the Sinestro ongoing series where Lobo becomes a gun for hire for the former Green Lantern before Sinestro returns to Earth and makes a startling discovery during a visit to Kahndaq.

Myron brings up a couple of issues of the Lobo series which follows up the bounty hunter's appearance in Sinestro #15.  Lobo clears the playing field of some of the other Lantern Corps which might pose a challenge to Sinestro's emerging plans to become the dominate force in the universe, dispensing with a number of ring bearers.

Bill and Myron are back with episode 93 of The Podcast of Oa.  This episode focuses on the two most recent issues of Green Lantern: The Lost Army as the series comes close to its conclusion.  Myron and Bill talk about the change in pace of the book as the Green Lanterns find short term allies in the Lightsmiths.  Myron takes exception to the characterization of John Stewart in issue 5 while Bill believes John's take charge attitude is just what the series needed.

An email from a listener sparks conversation about the depiction of Hal Jordan in recent months as well as the telepathic communications seen between John Stewart and members of the Green Lantern Corps.  Myron also talks about the recent cameo of Hal Jordan on Arrow and more campaigning by actors for the role of John Stewart.
