  1. There seems to be a “glitch” in this episode. The third story LISTED is “When Supergirl Replaced Jimmy Olsen”, but what is in the audio of this episode is a repeat from your previous episode, “The Super-Life of Lois Lane”, followed by the notes for the Jimmy Olsen/Supergirl story!

    • Sounds like it was an operator “glitch”. I was having some computer issues yesterday. i had to delete some stuff to give my laptop enough memory as i edited the episode together. I’ll check it out today and reload the corrected episode.

      • Thank you. No worries. I just wanted to call it to your attention. I really enjoy your podcast, and I appreciate all the work you put into it.
