    The first 16:45 of the audio is choppy, and then it smooths out.

    Just found this podcast, and I just wanted to say…thank you. 1989 was the year I got into reading comics, largely because of the Batman film that was released that year. I started reading Batman and Detective (whatever I could find on the spinner racks) right after I saw that movie, and it wasn’t long before I stumbled across young Tim Drake in the “A Lonely Place of Dying” storyline. Tim became my favorite character almost immediately, so while I came to comics because of Batman, I stayed because of Tim. That’s still true, by the way, 25 years later, even though the New 52 version of Tim is much different from the one with whom I grew up.

    It’s a shame that Tim no longer has his own series in the New 52, but at least he has his own podcast! Great job!
