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

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.

Hal Jordan and Sinestro return to the spotlight in the pages of Green Lantern #18 and Volthoom continues on his quest to power up by tormenting John Stewart and Fatality in Green Lantern Corps #18. Co-hosts Bill Giancoli and Myron Rumsey talk about both books as well as Bill's own upcoming comic book mini-series Gears.

Green Lantern: The Animated Series recently wrapped its run on the Cartoon Network and in episode 44 of The Podcast of Oa we talk about the penultimate episode, "Ranx", as well as reveal our plans for a Google Hangout to chat with listeners about the finale and the series as a whole. Details of this event should be published on the Blog of Oa website and Facebook page very, very soon. We also have some listener feedback leading to a discussion about whether Warner Brothers needs to produce solo films for the characters before they attempt a Justice League movie.

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!
