Just in time for June's mini-relaunch and to help kick off the celebration of the 75th anniversary of Green Lantern, Podcast of Oa's co-hosts Myron Rumsey and Bill Giancoli sit down with Green Lantern writer Robert Venditti to talk about the new direction the series is taking.  Myron brings inquires about a number of plot threads left hanging by Hal Jordan's renegade turn and Robert addresses many of them, revealing that many of them will be dealt with once the book returns with issue forty-one.

Robert shares with listeners the current location of Larfleeze's ring, why Hal Jordan has changed his look and why he's flying around the universe in spaceship whose artificial intelligence is named Darlene.  Bill also makes a point to bring up the Carol Ferris / Hal Jordan breakup and Robert shares some insight as to why the two have, at least temporarily, parted ways.

Myron Rumsey and Bill Giancoli are back for another episode of The Podcast of Oa.  In episode 80 we catch up on all the January books in the Green Lantern family, plus we talk about Tyrese Gibson's campaign to be the cinematic Green Lantern.  Myron also addresses Ryan Reynold's recent comment about there being no script for the 2011 Green Lantern theatrical film when he auditioned for the part of Hal Jordan.

Note: While we strive to keep this show family friendly, occasionally we let a color metaphor to two slip by and this episode is one of those times.  For that reason we are labeling this episode explicit even though the language isn't that "bad".

Van Jensen Returns!

Green Lantern Corps writer Van Jensen joins co-hosts Myron Rumsey and Bill Giancoli for a epsiode 79 of The Podcast of Oa.  We talk about the announcement from DC regarding the cancellation of the title and Jensen reflects on his run with the series as well as some of his other projects.

We talk about the differences between Carol Ferris and Fatality's time as Star Sapphires and whether there's more in store for John Stewart's relationship with Yrra.  While Van cannot speak to what work he will be doing for DC post-Convergence or what the future of the Green Lantern Corps holds, he is optimistic about the future.
