Popmatic Podcast for March 23, 2016: Super Buckley vs. Bat Vidal

By , March 23, 2016

DC Marvel Crossover Classics IIBatman v Superman is coming out so on this show we talk about rivalries. Jeremy and Mike do there best to explain to me how Batman and Superman could be rivals, but I’m not sure if I get it. I am greatly disappointed there was no mention of Holmes and Moriarty. Things get better later in the show when we learn even weather can be sexy. It sounds like this episode was recorded in a closet!
