Did the Salvation Army's Racism Guide Come From Official Leadership or a Rogue Person?
"So both my in laws are officers for the Salvation army up in D.C.. And I can promise you this is not the Salvation army. This is a rogue person doing this. They deal with it all the time. I believe your son is still affiliated with this outbreak on the correct. Most certainly is, and he's devastated as well. He's very frustrated. Tim to ask his majors, some to ask his majors, what they know about. So this is coming from THQ, which is in Atlanta. This is all rogue. This is not the Salvation or I can promise you is not them. Salvation army has released a statement, Manny. The Salvation army is defending their racism guide. They argue the reading here from this is from the Washington examiner. They're arguing the new guide is meant to encourage discussion about racism. They denied that they attempt to indoctrinate, but here's what they say. The Salvation army has occasionally published study guides on various complex topics, including race to help foster positive conversations and reflection. The hope is that by openly discussing these issues, we can discourage a more thoughtful organization that is better positioned to serve those in need. They're not they're not they're not saying what you're saying, Manny. This is not one rogue person. Yeah. Literally, both my in laws have been Salvation army also for 27 years or up in D.C. and as soon as I heard you say it. The first thing I did was text it and my father in law said this is not them. So I'm texting him exactly what you said. Well, please do. And Manny, it's all online. You can find it. There is again an official response from the Salvation
Political Commentator Jason Watters Describes New Book 'How I Saved the World'
"Second Listen let me get right to your book because I loved it I was I got a copy got it early It talks about your time at Fox News from the beginning And listen I find this really hilarious I was looking through the book review It says that you divine quote great truths about the nature of our country while stumbling across beaches asking oblivious college students basic political questions Please if you could expound a bit on that Well one of the great truth I divine just by calling in within one second was because I have to cheat my wife when we have dinner reservations I have to say we have reservations at 7 when they're really at 7 30 But then they get kicked to that But then I've tried that with my wife but that may get hit to that stunt Then you have to back it down another ride No no really 6 30 I know that trick So tell it though tell us about the book It's a great book I found it hilarious Everything from the mom to eats to your time with man on the street interviews Really it's an interesting story of not just you but the whole media environment I know that the title of the book how I save the world is you know meant to be funny but it's a really interesting book So yeah so I used to be dispatched to all of these liberal precincts all across the country New beaches San Francisco Washington D.C. spring break And I would interview liberals in their natural habitat And what I found was that they are very insecure people whose lives lack meaning And in order to make up for that lack of meaning they project all of their insecurities onto the rest of us And they do that through control They do that through controlled and they do that through division And that's just in order to assuage their guilt and so they have someone to blame Because deep down Dan you know they believe this country was founded on inequality and racism And they need to be able to make up for that So they need to just demolish the country And they need to be in charge of remaking the country in a way that they see as just and fair Is it just and fair No of course not It's the same thing that's happening in Cuba You give up a little bit of your freedom in exchange for a life of comfort but it never works out all they do is control you and they dominate you And they try to just get into all of your life's little secrets and just nag the hell out of you until you say okay enough already And that's what they're doing right now They're just nagging us to death And enough is enough Sometimes you just have to act like a parent you're a parent You just say no Knock it off We're not doing this anymore And that's what this country lacks a little bit of a
George Soros Pumps Millions to D.A. Offices Across the Country
"Here Do you think George Soros is stupid Of course he's not You may think he's wrong and maybe even evil I tend to think so But he's not stupid The man is not stupid So why in the hell is he pumping literally millions of dollars into district attorney's offices All around this country From the D.C. area to Philadelphia to Milwaukee as we're mentioning here where this guy who just murdered 6 people in my opinion had injured 40 more what appears to be a terror attack from my mind this vehicular homicide massacre at this Christmas parade he was out on bail for only a $1000 with a criminal record As long as Mark Levin's arms and he has very long arms And he was at a $1000 bill for literally trying to run somebody over but that's by design See this is all part of the destruction of the basic norms of our society And when all of this crime happens people start screaming well it's because our system is broken Is the response No they're breaking the system It's not broken They're breaking it And then we're like wow how this get broken Well we got to come up with a new way and then they come up with their way It's formed around
Nick Searcy: The Government Is Silencing January 6th Defendants
"You are one of these people who just some of these people Nick they didn't even really know what was going on did they just sort of the gates open The doors were open They're like cool we get to go into the capitol and now they're sitting in prison cells for it It is grossly offensive and you're right It is chilling You compare this to how the FBI and the DOJ is labeling angry parents as domestic terrorists and you're absolutely right Their goal is to chill our opposition to what they're doing Yeah and you know sadly it is working up to this point I mean I don't know how many people that we contacted who said you know I'm afraid to talk I don't want to tell my story because I'm afraid of repercussions And even in some cases we did interviews with people who didn't afterwards called us up and said in my lawyer said take me out So they were afraid to stand up to the government because the government has them over a barrel Most of these people are middle class people who own their own businesses who don't have a $100,000 to mount a vigorous legal defense So they wind up with these court appointed attorneys out of Washington D.C. who are basically working for the government They're not working for their clients They're trying to get their clients to cop to a plea deal by telling them look if you go to a jury trial you might get 30 years But if you clean guilty this one little felony You can do 6 months and you can get on with your life even though you've been won't be able to vote or ever own a firearm but still And see that's what that's what's happening to these people They are being railroaded by the FBI and the Department of Justice because they don't have the means to fight back
Speaker Newt Gingrich Describes the Power of 'Cheerful Resistance'
"Speaker Newt Gingrich welcome to America first one on one. Well, thank you very much and with that kind of an overwhelming introduction. How could I do anything with be happy to be with you? Well, we don't even need we shouldn't need to introduce you. I have this short bio that's on the back of your new book beyond Biden. I'll just mention one thing author of 41 books that enough said right there. I heard you speak just a few days ago at the museum of the Bible here in Washington, D.C. an amazing institution, where some great people from Liberty University and elsewhere, Doug the groot and the former Republican congressman Dave brat had an idea for a new contract with America like the one you penned this time for the business interests that are so stymied by this new administration. And let's start with what you said during that invigorating speech. You talked about the need for a positive attitude. The cheery attitude taught us about how the concept of the happy warrior. So embodied by Ronald Reagan is all the more important now in a post COVID age and with the trillions of dollars we see being wasted on Capitol Hill. I think one of my favorite terms is cheerful persistence. I think anything big at thanks persistence, but if you're cheerful, you are dramatically more likely to have people helping you get there. And I think that the objective fact is that 330 million free people, each endowed by their creator with the right to pursue happiness creates such momentum of creativity and excitement and enthusiasm and energy that despite the best efforts of the totalitarians on the left and the big government socialists and the woke radicals that in the end of free people went
Kevin McCullough on the Nuances of Unrest in Kenosha, WI
"Today right now is Kevin McCullough. He's talking about the Kyle whitton written house written house verdict that just came in just about an hour or so ago. And let's continue on with that with Kevin McCallum. Kevin? Well, we were talking before the break a little bit about the dynamic. I think the media really missed on this because when you're talking about police violence in New York or Chicago or Detroit, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, LA, you're talking about a very different dynamic than you are in Kenosha Wisconsin. I've been to Kenosha Wisconsin, a bunch of times. It is a college town. You have the big university of Wisconsin there. You have the it is in essence. It is a city technically, but it is in the middle of farmland. And you don't have people just rolling up to go protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin on a regular basis. There's a very different sort of vibe and feel. And when people are saying, why would Kyle rittenhouse who didn't live in the exact neighborhood where this went down? Why would he come over there to do that? Well, in the Midwest, farmers have each other's back in small towns look out for one another, and so forth. And by the same standard, if you had these protesters bust in causing the perpetrated and very intentional chaos that they were trying to create, then why wouldn't people that were from the region also say, well, wait a minute, not in my house. I'm not going to let this go down. So I think the media fundamentally misunderstood the fabric of who they were covering and where it was from, but they also obviously got it quite wrong in that the prosecutors just did not have they didn't have much of a case. When you have one of the victims saying that he pointed a gun at the accused and has to admit that, you know, he had basically threatened him by pointing the gun at him. That's an immediate wash. I'm surprised that the judge didn't almost at that point throw that case out completely just on

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Visited Accused Jan. 6 Rioters in Jail
"Welcome back to one on one with Marjorie Taylor Greene. Marjorie, it's such an indictment of the business as usual, political establishment, not just the rhinos, but actually the GOP establishment that we've had hundreds of arrests. We've had the FBI chase down people who weren't even inside Congress on January 6th in Alaska. I've got friends telling me my friend was not even near Congress and they tracked her with the phone data. The phone company gave the geolocating data were you outside Congress, just insanity, the FBI hunting down these people instead of BLM or antifa. You are one of a handful of politicians, citizen politicians whose actually trying to get to the bottom of it and to fight for these Americans who are guaranteed by our constitution, a speedy, a speedy judicial process, you went to the prison, they refused you access you were so kind to call us after your visit for those who didn't hear your story. Tell us what you found when you went to this hellhole in D.C. where these people are being kept prisoner. I found something I never thought I'd see in our country. I found something that we've seen in movies and we hear stories about in other countries. I found out that what I thought was Internet rumors and not fully true, I found out it's all true. Everything we've been hearing is true about what's happening is January 6th defendants. Not only that I've talked to people who've had their homes raided by the FBI in the dark of night. I talked to one man and his wife, where they had handcuffed their child with handcuffed and she was dragged out in the front yard and nothing but a nightie and then the small town newspaper where they lived took a picture of her and put her on the front page of the newspaper, and that woman wasn't even in Washington, D.C. on January 6th. She was in California at home. And this is what's happening, but then I met people and Sebastian, I want to tell you I tried for months to get in that jail and several of my colleagues went with me, Louie gohmert, Matt Gaetz, Paul gosar, Andy Biggs, bob good. Those are the ones that have come along. They've been there every time, but they've definitely tried to. And I've tried every single time to get in. But finally, we went in, we were allowed for a tour of the whole jail. Well, I want to tell you we saw the whole jail. Except. Except the January 6th event in area, except the patriot wing. And then what did you do? Oh, I pitched a
Mike Is DONE Talking All Things COVID
"Obviously the government is overreaching. We got a bunch of Republican elected representatives who are pushing back against weaponizing osha for mask mandates or vaccine mandates rather. I'm just tired of it. You got the mayor of D.C., no more indoor mask mandates, while she's wearing a stupid. I mean, it's just enough. It's enough, and I'm done. So, with that in mind, your little tympani roll Erik will get will make him do a little announcement here. As of today. We are no longer going to have conversations about COVID numbers, mask mandates, vaccines, I want you to live your life, do what you think is right, do what you think is best, do what's right for your family for your set for yourself for your health, your body, but I'm done. It annoys me and I think it frustrates the audience and see, I've got a kind of a funny mission. My mission is to invite people to feel good about a radio show. I want to attract listeners not change them
Rep. Claudia Tenney Shares Her Stance on America's Security Leadership
"And we are delighted to have with us somebody who I don't even want to call her a politician because she is and every time she comes on the show every time we see her speak, it's like an American. It is a citizen and that's what we need more of. Representing the 22nd congressional district of New York, congresswoman Claudia, welcome to one on one. Well, thank you for thank you for that great introduction. It's an honor to be on, of course. We have so much to discuss, especially we're going to talk about what a zuckerbuck is and your special, yes, your election integrity efforts will discuss that just give me lots of like a box. We'll talk about what is happening to the economy. We'll talk about recent events in D.C.. But first things first, tell us a little bit about your take as a mother of a marine as somebody who is deeply vested in the security of this nation. I want people not to forget what happened just barely a couple of months ago in Kabul. Give us your take from the inside from a member of the political elite of the last ten months of national security leadership in this nation. Yeah, let me just first say my deepest condolences to those families on the death of those 13 service members and women two women were also killed. Needlessly, we honor our gold star families, we actually did a vigil in my community to honor those 13 that were killed in August. And we also honored our gold star families from the latest wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Nothing is more. Nothing more painful than to see service members killed in action, especially in a situation which shouldn't have happened. And that is why it's so tragic to watch. This whole I can't express how sad it was to see that that it actually happened. But we saw the chaos, developing on the ground, each day got worse, as Biden put forth his mission to remember how it started. And I remember the first committee. He said, I want to move out of Afghanistan and pull all our troops out on September 11th because it was symbolic day. Yeah, he wanted that photograph. He wanted that sound. I told that us out of Afghanistan. Is if the mission were not to advance freedom to ensure the safety and security of America, to protect our foreign assets, there are bases 85 billion in change of equipment left there with our enemy the Taliban to leave them to take back over and not understanding the callousness of President Biden to not see how devastating that was, especially to a New
Why Is Washington, DC Suddenly Concerned About Borders?
"Is why all of a sudden is Washington, D.C. concerned about borders. If you want to get Washington, D.C. really fired up about borders. Don't talk about the southern border. Don't talk about the border between U.S. and Mexico. No, no, no, no. The border they get really fired up about? Is the Ukrainian Russian border. Now, let me be very clear. Vladimir Putin's a thug, okay? I'm not a Putin apologist. There are some people that do that. I think it's kind of weird. I'm not really into that. He's obviously kind of an autocrat. But am I kind of like wake am I spending time at night wondering or concerned whether or not Vladimir Putin is going to expand the Russian border by a hundred miles or not? I couldn't care less. But for whatever reason, there is this new campaign through Republicans to demand U.S. troops to go to Ukraine and defend Ukraine against Russian aggression. Secretary of State Anthony blinken said that he's a concerned about reports of unusual Russian military activity near Ukraine. He added, as we've made it clear any escalator escalatory or aggressive actions would be of great concern to the United States. Why? Why would that be of great concern? Again, I'm not like a Russian. I'm not like a Russia fan. But our own border is being compromised. Our own borders being invaded. Our country is being invaded. Why am I supposed to care about Ukraine again? What does that have to do with us? How is that an existential threat to our existence? And warning to Russia blink into the Biden administration, officials know its playbook, pointing to Ukraine's escalation in 2014 under the Obama administration. Although Russia's intentions are uncertain, the presence at the Russia's elite first guard tanks, an army lens credibility concerns that Russia is planning additional incursions into Ukraine territory. Republicans urged the administration to quote immediately consider an appropriate U.S. Military presence and posture in the region and to initiate appropriate intelligence sharing activities in the U.S. and Ukraine. Why are Republicans not calling for troops to go to the southern border? Why do we want American troops to go to the Ukrainian border, which might be a good cause? Find whatever. Stop Russian aggression I guess we're supposed to care about stuff like that. But our own borders being

Attorney Kash Patel Reacts to John Durham's Recent Indictments
"First cash Patel. Welcome back to Salem radio. Savage, great to be with you guys. I'm so happy that you are continuing to hammer on the truth in Russia. That's why we're here every single day for three hours as well as our newsmax show on Sundays. Cash. I'm going to run by you. The reaction I got just a few days ago from Joe di Genoa, a lot of us have lost hope with John Durham. They say, yeah, yeah, yeah, it's two years later. I get that COVID slowed him down. But talk to Joe, who's a former special counsel himself, former U.S. Washington attorney, U.S. attorney for D.C.. He said these indictments, the level of detail in these indictments, especially the most recent one of danchenko, speak to a very serious individual who's going to get to the bottom of it. You've been there. You uncovered the Russia hoax for the house. What's your reaction to the recent developments on Capitol Hill? Yeah, look I think that John Durham is spot on track. As a former federal prosecutor, too, who brought these types of large scale fraud conspiracy cases, I spent three four 5 years sometimes working up a case in John Durham is working on the biggest scandal in the United States presidential history. And in two years, he's got three indictments. And the other thing about these indictments, he's connected the DNC to the corruption at the FBI to the corruption of their lawyers to now directly corrupting or expose enough nature of Christopher steel in the source. And normally these indictments are about two, three, four, 5 pages long. 40 page indictment. Yeah. Issues on the latest go round because John Durham is speaking to the public. It's the only way he's legally allowed to do so. And he's highlighting to take Sullivan's of the world that Charlie Dolan of the world. All these corrupt actors that fusion GPS and Christopher Steele and mccabe abstract and page. It's all coming to life. So I think he's on the right path. I've said it before on my show cash's corner where I did a deep dive into the derm saga and I think he's only just getting
Here's What Matters in the Kyle Rittenhouse Case
"The median American ladies and gentlemen is both racist and anti semitic hates the country Even though the luxuriate in the benefits of a Republican government and a capitalist system They live in their own bubble Washington D.C. New York Los Angeles They say whatever they want to say because the corporatists that own these these media outlets they're buying protection and some of them actually agree with them And they're having difficulty coming to grips with the fact that Kyle rittenhouse should never been charged with murder That in fact the evidence all the evidence Including testimony including video including his testimony Demonstrates that he was protecting himself with a weapon Now let me tell you something It doesn't matter why he was there it doesn't matter if he crossed state lines It doesn't matter if he's familiar with the town which is where his father lives and he's been there many many times Doesn't matter if he had a gun He was the year too young to purchase So his friend purchased it doesn't matter what kind of shirt he was wearing Doesn't matter what he said four months after or four hours before The issue is when he pulled the trigger to his rifle When he pulled the trigger to his rifle was it reasonable under the law did he have a reasonable expectation that he could be fatally harmed The answer in all three instances is yes
The Left, and Their Monopoly on Victimhood
"On an issue that I have covered regularly the vaccine regularly should say the virus and all its ramifications vaccines included. Aaron Syria lawyer who has followed this greatly and been involved in it legally CDC admits crushing rights of naturally immune without proof they transmit the virus. After formal demand, and I saw the formal demand. It's a freedom of information act demand. After formal demand the CDC concedes it does not have proof of a single instance of a naturally immune individual spreading the virus. I saw it. It's so incredible this piece of news, and of course it won't be reported in denying media. That was the truest thing that Donald Trump said in his four years. And he said, many true things, by the way, the lying media is like its treatment, remember, what was that Catholic boy's name in Washington, D.C.? Anyway, remember that the Catholic boy? This written house is really chapter another chapter in that, or like the white, the white lacrosse players at duke. The media lie to you that every day by omission or co mission. They lied about me. That I denied that gaze have been pariahs during the aids crisis. It's a 100% law. You could read my statement. But because I also said, or because I said that the unvaccinated are also pariahs who, this set them off. The left owns all victimhood. There are no victims. Among conservatives or among white males.

But you know it's speaking of the first four issues that i've read in the issues it was better than not encased austin. We've been reading unfortunate. But i thought it was a pretty good setup and the art. You know looking at losing lantern tired Titular you'll like the the art helped a lot. And i think causing crossover had to be done. Auden's a bit tighter and editor so the next issue that we're bathroom i feel like it's one of the better. Yeah well let because he was working with two different other writers to probably right. Yeah think so. I mean i think this was a big you know like you said. The story was better than i remembered. But i think it was. It was definitely like a big push. You know get numbers up.

"Longer to big and people trying to read the comic seattle on. No one is the as one of the problems. I mean there's like way to is there a too many books out there now. Like i love batman. Batman is one of my favorite characters but like there is a ton of batman bolts. Right now out there. It's there have been in this. This is a statistic that will blow your mind. If you think about it. There had been more stories told about batman than about any other character in the history of mankind. They think about they actually over the last eight years. I mean sure characters. Like hercules have been around a lot longer but how many stories are the stories are. They're really not my story yesterday. But santa claus are. There really is so. It's it's really by fought batman by far the to the point where i mean in the eighty nine ninety ninety one at that point it could still say that i read every story that everyone published up to that point. But there's a point at which the just because so much so much just can't do it anymore every week every week. There's at least one bat book. It's yeah but at least i i at least three now. I mean seriously. Oh yeah there's next year could hardly clinton the bat family and all that stone. Like y'all's go south. I what about like spiderman it out but yeah i mean. Batman has decades on the water. That's now and again. It's as many spiderman store stories or boxes. There aren't any given moment there still more batman books other. Yeah yeah so. We're going to that as a trivia for charlie these dogs which good character in western literature. Yes exactly but who sells the most that. Dc currently used to be superman. But he's been batman for ever. It's been batman since the system movie says that michael keaton movie. That's when that's when batman became our most are garriga. What happened superman.

"Is. Has wally become number two or oh yeah wallet. Easily number two but it's it it goes. I think he goes to give it on any given day. Goes superman wally dick grayson and then. It's a the big. He's like twenty titles fourth place. So i love the grayson But no we like i. But i mean we even betting after Brian michael benda's Left superman hallmark mark way. It's gonna take a superman. Martin watch marquis gonna take over superman. I here's the thing it not like. It didn't come up. Oh see told you. It's not like it didn't come up. I'm not saying. I was officially offered the book but it certainly was not something that came up in conversation because i you know once once the publisher left i was suddenly the blacklist of the had gone for years and years with so many names on it that got burned and so people are getting calls right and left. But i don't know what to do with that book as it exists. Now i just don't i mean it's i. I respect that people. Like john. Kent and i respect that people dig them being married lowest and the secret is how all. That's great. i mean. I haven't i'm not i'm not gonna knock that stuff at all. It's just not the superman that i am comfortable with. It's not isn't it. That's not how. I see the character so if you were to hand me that stuff i i wouldn't know what to do with it so if you had your way like you could do it however you want to. Would you like what silver age superman. Well my exactly me. Here's the thing. I mean. I i wouldn't i would never the monthly's i would never send jonathan lowest all that stuff because that's an insult people who have been reading the comics for this long. Frankly old lois and superman have been married since. Nineteen ninety four so almost all our audience knows shoot. Men only is married and it would be sort of selfish me to go up. Taking that back. Never happened. I don't want to do that But there's room in the dc universe to tell superman stories from before then so and we will. We will see. We'll let let's to be continued on that Sounds cryptic. Have you been watching that. Tv show. i was prepared. Not the like it. Because you know the setup not again my superman but i i really like it. I think that Tyler has grown into the role of you. I think that. When i first salman supergirl i was sort of underwhelmed. Because he's he that he has he didn't have a lot of presence on that show and no matter whether it's even even if it's super bowl show. I feel i feel like when superman enters the room all hits turn aiding that superman takes command of any room. He's in whether he wants to or not as a character and tyler didn't give that vibe on the super bowl show but on this and he's really sort of stepped into it. And i'm i really like the kids and i think it's a smart on your smart show. I really enjoy modern superman. Shout let people embrace it. A lot of people still actually are iffy about that. Marriage is like pretty much bible. Exactly i i think that at this exact moment may be my favorite of the air over shows and i mean girls up there on the hit. They've hit on like the good combination of good writing. And it's like it's it's welcoming. It's it's it's a good entry point for new people. Maybe newer to superman again again. They're like added in all stuff from the comics. Like john henry irons the aratu cater all that stuff on combat student. Then they also had that smallville by to really trying to bring all the generations superman fans. That's what really makes that show right now. The one thing that worries me is that. I just don't want them to fall. Prey to what i think is as much enjoy air over. Shows what i think is a weakness of the shows. Which is that after a while. All of them have twelve characters in them and so suddenly every episode is like twelve hander. Everything is you gotta. You gotta have a story. Jelly got a story for allegra. That story for ralph story pursue. You got a story for irish story. Barry and i don't i mean it. The i tune ascendancy flash. It's called the shirts whole flach flach and was superman. You know you're already spreading the splitting the focus with lowest in the kids and stuff. But i get that but i just i worry that i don't i really don't want it to become like now. We got to do with john. Henry irons story. We've you know he has got. He's got a subplot and suddenly you know the woman who runs the newspaper as a subplot and you know general lane has a subplot. And i don't i that's my fear. 'cause that's that's the way those shows tend to go on the reverse and i really as long as they keep it as focused. They have on good with. Yeah at least on that show at least only clark jordan powers on flash. It seemed like almost everyone has powers. Yeah kinda there's that too. Yeah as soon as once everybody else. In the castro's getting superpowers and that's another sign. That sons sums off yet have. Has anyone ever approached you about doing anything like any writing for any of those shows or no. I've never not done yet. No air wallace very well. We've been friends for a long time. I just don't. I don't exploit that friendship by knocking on the door and it's a completely different kind of writing. I mean i come to lately different kinds of writing and so i. It's a steep learning curve to do that. It's not especially. I mean writing. An episode of tv show is terribly different running up a issue over comment but on a show like that where there's so many like i said. So many threads so me subplots. So many pe- characters be services stuff that is that i can't imagine how difficult that would be. So i'm in the middle of the season. Or they like okay. You're starting appoint a and we need you to get us the point be so it's like you have your middle ear beginning end. You just have to fill out the middle. Also you've you've already told all my stories. So i don't know i don't know what i bring to the table. You told the one rings time it's horrible. You told the return of very alley. Told i you know you've already milked all my stuff. I don't know what i would bring to the table. Okay how 'bout direct the. I mean we can easily get twitter petition. Going for directing mark. We'll do it. Think you need to have some experience. And i got none so i'm good as good as an audience and good is not okay. It's let will copy that on here So i guess you can say you're being cryptic before Is there anything coming up Soon like dc or marvel can't discuss nothing that can discuss actually I'm doing a eight page story. With jose garcia lopez in wonder woman eightieth anniversary. You go. that's pretty cool. I never worked with him. And it's it's a dream come true But there's i'm working on other stuff. I just i i wish it. Some of this is so far out in terms of you know when it's going to see print that is not too early to vote on this stuff. Sorry if i can get you back another day. We might have talked some captain america. Because i was like. Oh yeah we're talking flash tonight. Then that's all that conversation going. Facebook today i was like oh god my god yes but after diamond on facebook made me so angry. It made me so angry. Oh yeah. I was angry tune in. I'm like oh it's his favorite character to over there. Oh yeah you know. I don't know we don't want to give that to offer like a half an hour so let's back to the topic is it. Just i mean just to keep it. Generic has even like superman too. It's like i think some people just don't take the characters dislike. How do you not get you know just the just the even people meet on the internet and staffer just that just like how could you read stories. How can you. How can you be an internet. Bullying then claim that super manager favorite character. You have no idea. that's not. How is that. How would behave as i can't behave. No you know. He has the right son. Superman i think they forgot to qualify. Yes yeah yeah. Why do kids. When i was a kid. They'd still call maxine. I'm like i do read these things. Now come on. That's not what we do i know. Did you get the right lessons. Yeah i don't know Okay if.

"For permanent in apartment way and he was. He loved the flash. He grew up as a kid. Love and the flash is whole origin. I worship the flash. All i want to be as the flash all wouldn't be as the flash in the boom days lightning and he gets to become flash. Well all i wanted was to be in comics. All i wanted was being comic throwing up all was to be comic somehow income and now i you know that i am so. That's what we had in common. We're both boys who made the dream. Come true and once i got those two tenterhooks into wall and once i sort of understood those things about him then. It just became so easy right third character. Did that come right away or did did it take a little bit of writing the figure that out. I ain't came a little. I think it came a little the fan boy thing i think a little later the but in even born to run his relationship with with with uncle ira is very much my relationship with my grandfather and the fact that he and i really couldn't communicate because because my when my mother passed away we really couldn't communicate and same with wally in iran. Irs and. that's where that spun from. So it's like. I said that's us use. What's in your life if you can't do it without making it all mary sue. Did you find a dante. Because he was the first psychic to make the promise come good. Could you didn't happen simply. You're just out there a exactly. That's really it out there in the white house What does my notes here Took speed force me. You asked me a question. I will go on for twenty minutes. So i don't here. There's no excuse for you to not have an extra all right. I would ask you one of my favorite story. Lines was the walter west story line. The alternate version of. Wally did that come from again. We were looking for a way to knock. The readers off depends brian. I both very much out like writing monthly comics and not monthly comics where it's a defined six issue story arc or or whatever. There's nothing wrong with that now. And that's most common done these days. You know you need to do one specific story and the readers from the get go. It's going to be four parts. Maybe six parts or whatever and that's fine but there's some magic to not being constrained by that there's some magic of being able to let a story breathe and take whatever time it naturally needs because then you can surprise readers and they can't i have always said with return to bury alum one of the reasons it hit hard more successful is that you didn't know which she was going to end it. You didn't so if you know it's gonna end issue seventy nine and you're reading issue seventy seven. It's easier for you to sort of think ahead and start to predict what's going to happen next and we all know that right. We all know who. There's fifteen minutes left in the movie. We start thinking about okay. Here's you're gonna wrap it up but without that book and obvious then you don't know it's it's so just really everything becomes unpredictable and same with walter west. We were looking for waited. Do something of some links that would make all unpredictable and clearly. I like replacing wally an awful lot as you can tell him. The series goes on on fox. Yeah because you did you. Did you created john. Fox was at the anniversary. It's yeah that character to that. I mean he. On what dc. One million and all that other. Yeah cool him. Go on. But i do love that misery of walter west. Because that yeah. That's not a lot of books. Yeah yeah it was kind of older. Seem used in other books. And i couldn't tell the other writers what the secret of walter west was all i can tell them was. Here's how you need right now. In terms of how you approach him and his voice. But i couldn't. I couldn't tell anybody this week given a big secret. Oh so they did so no one else. No other writer new. Okay now. Just me brian. Wow that's pretty needs to be able to work head in hand with the editor because they Sometimes things come by all that must've been editorial mandate. Yeah no brian. I always thought like one like one brain shared between two people. We always thought like we always call each other up to knock stories back ideas back and forth and it got to a point where the gods on truth got to a point where sometimes when i got stuck in a plot point all i would have to do is pick up the phone and start. Dial it wouldn't even have to talk to brian. just the very active Starting to talk to. Brian and making the phone call was enough to jog something loose in my memory so that was good And so he you know he. He was the editor four. Why most of the john fox stuff right and then about about halfway through that. I think that's When i convinced him to go freelance because he was his kids were growing up in new york. That means you're an hour and a half on the train each way every if you're lucky every day and they'd hours an office and you know the wants to see his kids grow up and brian good writer and brian and i were thinking very much along the same lines and i wanted to be able to have more time to do more stuff so inviting him to just join me. As the co writer. The book was completely natural at speaking at that point heating and inserting up. Tim going to think polka team on is editor for a while. He found us. Paul ryan god bless him and then after that. Maybe joey cavalieri. I'm trying to remember. But that's you know we don't. We always had good luck with editors when they were never intrusive once. Yeah that's that's literally the run villes really natural like everybody was just a well oiled machine. I think that's why the run really stands out thank you. Oh yeah. Like paul ryan yeah. He's polish yes. Oh yeah you're talking about family and then After a while when you came back back. I think You introduce walis family. Where did that come from. That was well. I mean you know. The kid looks done stuff with his mom and dad And made them distinct and interesting characters and he doesn't stuff with chonkin and other sporting characters he had mine memory of this. And i could be wrong but my memory of this was that when he left the book and gave it to me he asked if he could take some of these characters like mason trowbridge and chunk over with him to wonder so that's why they knew his his supporting characters. Didn't show up very much in my first couple years just because they were bills characters and i thought he was going to do something with them and that was fine With mom and dad you know he's a small town kit and so it just the i wanted to get back to the family aspect. They also love the fact that walsh parents aren't dead. I love the fact that he's not motivated motivated by orphaned revenge. Which is terrible terrible motivation to us. Because it's overused. So i mean that's that's where the family came from the big thing. I always say it's like even berry back in the day..

"First style comic caper. No of the air oversee annual Did so many of these years summer I am fill this here. And of course been looking for big guests this summer. So of course. We're talking flash. I don't think he gets bigger than mr mark. Waid alot sir. Hello sir how are you good. How are you. It's been a few years since we chatted while it doesn't seem that long i think the last year and a half time has lost all meaning everything every day same day. Yeah all right so jump into this We talked a little flash onto a few years back but like i don't think we really really dug into it and just wanted to get a like a lot of the background lake like you were always a big flash fan even before you got the book right. Yeah i was. I wasn't a superman or know a die hard slash fan but it certainly read. All the stories are collected on books. And i and i liked all the jewish schwartz characters and the atom green lantern slash And i was an kind of like kids slash. I kind of like wally west. But i wasn't deeply connected to him anymore. I was like i dunno acrobat And then once we became flash. That was interesting. But i wasn't drawn into that character and then you know mike. Barron has a certain style of writing and he approached the book in a in a way that i read all those books but it didn't really his stuff didn't grab grammy go master lope stuff that fallen after that grammy. Because i know bill personally. And he's been a friend for a long time and he's a really really good writer and so i was really starting to get into get into wally with with bill. Really so how did that opportunity to write the flash come about did you pitch for it or utada handed. A little bit of both or what happened was my best friend. Was brian augusta. Who the editor of the book. And i had left staff. I'd worked on stanford. Dc from eighty seven eighty nine that left staff but he was always making sure i had a little work here. A little work there as much as he could do He gave me a flash tv special story to And then he gave me the structure of the slash anniversary. Issue came out Especially policy issue and then from there proved. I can handle the character and so brian offered me the book and he did it over the protestations of most of the staff because many of them felt like tv shows been castle. Why don't we just cancel the book and some of them felt like oh mark. Wait he's gonna make it into a silver age fan boy thing. It's going to be awful. So brian god bless stuck to his guns and gave me the gig and we went out to lunch and we plotted over lunch. That first four part warned. Run thing and neither of us dream. You know that one hundred issues later still be in some capacity working on the book but that's where it all started with. They're going to cancel coach because of the show. Because i mean what about all the tan synergy looks when i first started picking up the book lay when the show started and i mean there was the flash but i mean it was berry instead of wall i mean it was almost completely different. So they just i. There was just the book was was doing okay but it was like a low meatless book and frankly amid list. I mean no matter who took it on at you know at its height. We never outsold green lantern. Which always made me wanna put a gun to my head And we could never outsell batman or superman whenever it's always been missiles book but at that point with tv show cancelled. The the feeling was kind of dragon. Maybe we should just let it go. I don't know how strong feeling was. But it certainly been voiced by some of the higher upstairs so Brian took the gamble. And it paid off for both of us just Like you were talking. You said about your off first. Storyline the born to run Even then were you thinking of the speed force has no no no no i. The speed force came much later. I remember distinctly the way approach these way approach these characters. I post these things. I like to as brian says where the suit like. Get into the suit. Get into the characters. Think saint like them look at the world through there is Right about these characters it from a very deep internal place and so i always thinking about what would what would slash do in this situation. What we're classroom this situation. How he perceived this how he perceived that and i just remember one day out of the blue just occurred to me. I wonder what he sees when he runs faster than light. And i got on the phone with brian. I said there's something here. There's something on the other side of the speed of light that he tap into And it just became the speed force. It was speed forces always just a placeholder name. It was never meant to be called the speed force. It was just until for something better and we never did and for a long time. It was obvious that we were just kind of knocking off force from star wars but it seems to have gone a life. That's only in the last five or six years since the tv show survey. So i don't think anybody here's the word speed force any mourn things out there i mean. I don't think it's ever left the comics since you created it. Yeah it's played a part in every season of the tv show. Yeah have you. Have you been watching or you caught up on the show. I every so without fail. I mean you know. Some of them are awesome. Some not so not as awesome. But it's it's done by good people somebody who care about comics which is so important just so important and it's it's always fun. My first season is all my favorite seasons. Always gonna be the first season. Just because they didn't know that they were going to be able to come back for a second season so you can see them turning over cards with every episode in doing if they if they had known at the time that they were going to be on this long. I'm sure that i would have become three seasons or the material but it was just every episode oriental vibrate. Oh this going to learn about the speed force or learn about this ordinal on that every episode was something like that and it was so it was so awesome. And i you know i think that data know i think us great cast is good. I think that Losing losing tom as harrison wells kills me because he was the best thing about the show. And that's not to denigrate the show now just i loved him because even in that first episodes the way he delivers this these lines of dialogue that are complete scientific mumbo jumbo that in the mouse moat actors would just sound clunky and sometimes do sound quality when they're delivered by some of the other members. You know tom cavanagh can make it all sound so dramatic and so realistic. And so i mean i. I just think he was just phenomenal. Oh yeah he could do anything to i mean he was a terrifying villain. It'd be like the bumbling idiot di basically at all. What was your favorite thing to see. Come to life. Onscreen for me is the cosmic treadmill and the faster two worlds for me. It would under the moment that harrison well spoke the words speed force somewhere. There's a picture of me a photograph of me. In that moment as i am just a god and over the moon with excitement because something that i did something that i created with brian and it was on. It was being spoken on television. That was no feeling like that world so that was. There's been a lot of favorite moments but that was by far the pinnacle for me. Close second was probably your favorite..

"Hi Cave. Bites is Susan Eisenberg who has voiced wonder woman it nonimation, and now voiced MIRA and lego universe in DC lego rage of Atlantis before we start. I Love Gal. You're very special wonder woman to me I mean what you did with her was distant. Think. That's a great way to start this interview. Not So. Mirror. That's why we're here. So. How did you kind of kind of get into her space I lucked out because I know brandon the. Who is behind this project and Brandon and I did a COMECON together years ago. And we were all out to dinner with fifteen people out to dinner and we're walking back after dinner and he said you know I'd love to work with you one of these days and I'm like grand. and. Then literally six months later, the phone rang, it was my agent saying, you know you've been offered the role of Mira. In this new aquaman movie and that's how I mean. That's how it happened. It's it's It's just a lovely way to get a job and it doesn't happen very often that happens I mean most of the time you're just. auditioning everybody else in this in the town. Mirror always pushes Arthur curry even in the live action movies as we seen does she do that here? Oh, very much. So yeah, and I was loved that about her because I I was exposed to her justice league and. She's very much dad and what I love about the film to is that there's such a love affair going on between the two of them like you really feel it and. They have their own separate stories in this movie. But they're a unit also, and that's I mean that's what I. Remember about the two of them and that's what I got to play. So that was very that was excited. And she's adorable. She's adorable Lego. I don't know if you know that she. But she's like Oh and that was on my bucket list I wanted to do a lego character. I didn't care what character. So the fact that I got everyone joked that I was a princess announ queen and and it's like if I would have been, you know. The stable girl. Matter to me. I just wanted to Lego. Why is it? We haven't seen more of mirror before well as somebody who voiced wonder woman I'm never surprised that we don't see more of the leading ladies because we just don't and that's and that's fantastic on what's so great about this film also is that we were introduced to Jessica crews and she's So You know terrific in this in this movie and her her. Her character is flawed and funny and Darling, and she's going to be around for a long time. Jessica. Crews and that's going to be great for all the young people watching this movie and listening to this movie they're going to be introduced to this new law fantastic character. So no I'm not surprised but I think it'll change what's it like to do something lighter as appeared to the seriousness of the Justice League wonderful gift total gift I mean I, loved the levy of it. Know? I never got to be that funny and Justice League and all the funny lines penguin flash. And rightfully. So I mean you don't think wonder woman crackup. But with MIRA. And it's not like she's scuttled the funny lines in the movie, but there's so much funny in this movie and have you seen the film Nope Okay Okay so Far Right. So Act one scene. It's so. It's so funny and Bayton. I mean. You'll be on the floor laughing. All right. Not Literally. But if It's so entertaining and everyone doesn't amaze. Christina everyone. Doesn't monies and job Really good. She had only one concern. My biggest concern with this is that didn't sound like wonder woman. That has I just didn't want that for the fans you know what I tried to do a higher. Pitch and I, I did because she's got like a complicated story in this. So then I did a much lower pitch and I don't think I sound like her the fans May, but I don't think I do but I have to grunts in the movie and they're totally Diane. I'm saying it now putting it out to the universe. Fans it was totally Diane I wish because it's so hard for me to do that like who and not sound like Diana She comments on being part of the DC animated universe. The fact that it was, you know it was it just makes you Giddy as an actor that you get to be part of this universe. Everyone says it and it's like Blah Blah but it's so true like we just WanNa work know, and so getting a job as a huge to begin with and then getting a job in this universe, the DC universe which I've been connected to since two thousand. It's It's the gift that keeps on giving and you and you kind of pinch yourself that you get to do this again and again, whatever iteration whatever character again, I would have been the stable and but you're not you get to be clean Mira. It's it's an honor really is. She wanted to deliver as Mira. It's work and it's. I don't think it's easier. Because MUIRA has fan base rightfully so and she's extraordinary. So you want to deliver for the I. Mean I'm always thinking of the fans like I want to deliver something fans appreciate in like and can relate to. and. So yeah, I mean every job is kind of scary how about playing a villain. In the DC universe I love being a heroin you know it's like with injustice the game. Diana's. Data's and. People have asked me about that like how was it? I prefer if I have my way and no, one's giving me my you know, no one's asking how do you WanNa player seals what I love planners heroin I love the fact that she screwed and that she does the right thing and that she's kind compassionate empathic. So I'd rather play that character now most people will say they looked to play the villain because it's gritty and it's it's you know naughty. But and that's all true. But in the DC universe out, take the heroes I like the heroes. Any. Other heroin she'd like to play you know what if I could play more Diana. Rest of my career I would be happy. Medium you know what? That's like when you've been given the best. But mural was up there I mean MIRA would definitely be somebody I would've loved to would love to play and I got to players. So check check. And a Lego. Ask. Mission Accomplished. You can catch Susan Eisenberg Voicing Mirror. On DC lego rage of Atlantis definitely worth it. One of those great lego movie for the cave this is Tony Gelato. Thanks.

"Fine all the other different versions of Harley I if I'm honest with myself. Her popularity really started to explode because the video games. So that's all good and I like other versions of them. Her her character better than others but You know it's it's all good. It's all fair and I myself have taken pre existing DC comics characters and put my own spin on it. So it's all it's all fair But at the same time I have a big fondness for the original version of Harley that that that that Pollen Co created with Glenn so it's GonNa bring back what's it like as one of the CO creators of Harley Quinn to see her popularity explode because of suicide squad weird because I had been aware that she was becoming gradually more and more popular. Especially when it come to convention as you guys all know it's like you can't walk five feet on the floor without running in fast in harleys but are awesome flavors my favorite sweep Thank you darling. Later but I hadn't really realized how quite how popular she wasn't so it's about four or five years ago. I was doing an interview with somebody a journalist. Who mentioned that she had become like one of the top? Four Superhero characters in the world. And I went what is it. They said Yeah they consider her. She's like she's more important to the company now like Greenland or flash. I'm like how is that even possible? It's like when did that happen? You know but So it Kinda snuck up on me but it's it's it's great. I mean there's a whole thing going on especially with the wonderful Empower female super duty. And it's really taken root because that just drives even hurt him. There was always there but now that really is a further. I think people are going up the darker side. He I was GONNA say is. She's a little outside of the paradigm of of I mean. I know a lot of some people. Do think this. She's like an empowering. You Know Feminine superheroes are Super Super Character. But she's not she's weird because she's not exactly a role model you know depending upon which version of her unit you. WanNa talk about either criminal or abusive relationship with a joker. You know So there there's yeah. She doesn't fit the normal pattern. But maybe in a way that's kind of what makes her unique and Appealing in a weird kind of way that she is really unlike any other character comments so here he gives his comments on Melissa. Rash Voicing Harley Thought Melissa was awesome she everything we needed to do. I mean every time we stunt cast one of these parts. It's always a little bit of a gamble anytime we hire somebody that we've never worked with before you never really know if it's GonNa work or not but she nailed it you know. Hit hit it right out of the park she is. She's funny she's cute. She's vulnerable when she needs to be And she's in person she's an absolute delight to be around so it couldn't have been more pleasant experience working with her and I totally bring back. How did it come to play at Harley in poison ivy on both sides well it's just it's it's really all down to plot? It's just that we had to have a plot we need villain thought. Well it'd be a good villain. I thought poison ivy and global warming. And they're all kind of mixed up in my head and okay. It's a poison ivy to be the bad guy and so Batman and she's out she's out plotting some kind of plot and that has to get previous accomplices to help him out to find her. She can't find her. Go to Harley Quinn. Not his first choice but So I'm so yes. They're at opposite sides of this issue. poison ivy going to spoil it but her part of her plot involves radically changing the face of the planet which hardly would not end up on the right side of so So yes there Kind of a different kind of odds. Throughout interesting that he incorporated the kind of obscure the floor on the floor McMahon. What's interesting is that We have done so many series and movies with these characters that We've pretty much used everybody that you know is either top tier or interesting and The man is a character that I I I never even heard of the character until the famous ellen more run of swamp thing and that was my first exposure to him and I really liked that. Run A lot So I thought Oh man. Poison Ivy teamed up. That would not be good so So that that's really the basis of it And there actually are some some kind of allen more Easter eggs that kind of relate to that so in the story what would he liked to do if he were given the chance if I had my own magic wand in my own unlimited budget certainly I would do you know Blackhawk movie set in World War Two? You know but I would have a really difficult time. Trying to the video. People to fork over the money to make a Blackhawk Michigan Maybe it's own Kirk does well. Maybe you know that's a great idea. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA put a pin in really really well. It's dunkirk with superheroes liked to bring back pageant. No you're docks on our it's always a pageant she's she's great. I mean the first time we worked with her Was on I think. Dark Knight Returns Sir. Split Lana Lane And I was just really impressed with her Her burr both her comedic chops. Inter serious chops. she's great And again she's like most Delightful person be around and So when this came up You know she was literally the first person I thought of to play. Poison Ivy and And she she was Jessica and came into play with us so Yeah she's great she's Like I said whether she's doing straight up comedy or or or serious dramatic stuff. She's she's top notch. So there has to be a shorthand. Now working with Kevin Conroy. As he voices Batman again hit said putting on old shoe. You know we're we're so used to each other's methods of approach and stuff. It's like I didn't have to sit down and okay now this movie. This is your backstory listener motivations. I got his project that you would do differently if you could. I have to say probably I had it all to do it over again. I would do new frontier differently only in that. I think we try to we. Try TO CRAM too much story into one movie. It really needed to full extra movie to to really do the story justice. That's the only one of them is a good movie but I think it could have been better for more more room. Spread out you guys special. Thanks to Gary Mir now and also San Diego Comic Con. He'll be released August twenty nine. I like the Combo Pack.

"Now? This movie is going to be a flattering to. They wouldn't have happened if it weren't for the because they actually looked at the end of our movie to sell the SH series. They actually took that the final scene in flashpoint where he's running through the city and they actually took it to the head of the. Cw what we heard. And so you know I mean. There's nothing new. The comics get the ball first and animation kind of follows the comics and tweaks it and then live follows the cartoons tweaks it. We're just part of this whole thing. So hear. His thoughts on the live action series and movies wonder woman wonder woman is Great of the TV shows. I really dig flash Looking forward to black lightning What else looking forward to titans and I you know I can vibe on Gotham a little bit. It's not quite what I you know used to. But it's like they just threw Batman into a cuisinart instead Gumbo but it's cool it's cool. I mean all I can say is. We're in an era where there's multiple. Tv series live action. Multiple animated series multiple animated movies multiple. Live action. Movies. I mean what's not to love you if you don't like one thing there's always something else so I think it's a great time to be a DC van. There is more on the DC Animated Movie Universe celebrating ten years. Stay tuned as Batman. And you'RE LISTENING TO SCI-FI TALK. He talks about the characters that had been introduced in the films. But you know again with the continuity titles it's easier to introduce characters who wooden like we got bats woman in a movie you know. She's pretty off. The grid is scars general. Pub- public so I'd love to do more with that. Women's Vanessa's here. She's here but anyway. What about the new gods like dark side? He's in the horizon. I mean I. I don't know if he's GonNa be any of the live action stuff that we're definitely interested in and bring him back into our we start. A war with himself sees out their finger. Mantra also include other euros. Diversify the DC. When you Kinda came into what kind of lead you to toot. Well I mean you know. Everyone's was before is like you can't you can't you can. And when they said use of continuity. I'm like well that means we can do some world building that means we will have multiple movies to introduce characters and you know. I was coming up brave and the bold where nobody told me not to do anything so it just seemed. Natural for me is a van that that's what I wanted to see and I saw. Was you know if you're going to do a continuity why would you just keep doing? Batman and Justice League. If you could introduce you know. I just use them as a as a tool to get these other characters so seem seemed to no brainer. One of my favorites voiced by Jeffrey combs. The question will we see him again? I mean I've I've definitely pitched ideas to get into it. And there's there's lots of stuff going on with him as far as interest but no one's nothing's really landed yet but I'd love to stick him in a movie. Talented voice actor has voiced wonder woman and Black Canary. And She compares them boat and that is the talented. Vanessa Marshall and Young Justice. Canary was a teacher so she that's an interesting Area of her personality That I found interesting. Sort of like a mentor to the young superheroes Which was which was really cool and wonder what am I guess? She lives by example and teaches people through her actions but she's not necessarily coaching teens And obviously their superpowers are quite different. Hurt Canary Scream versus. He got the airplane. The Bracelets Lasso Celek going on with on ener general. Might what have you But In the sense that they're both Really strong female role models and and great iconic characters. They're pretty similar but the different nuances and of course what the stories focused on. I'm like I said for crisis onto words and flashpoint. It's a very different one woman woman so that was an interesting twist on her now. How do you approach the two versions of the same character? That's a great question. I suppose I just try and locate the best parts of my personality that apply to those qualities within the character and be within the circumstances That are presented within the script. And of course they're both quite different and just try to be as honest and focused and available Energetically as I can in the moment and hope for the best. Yeah but Yeah the because the stories are so different I think it's easier to differentiate them but Hera Wonder Woman Black Canary. They're all sort of in my natural voice range. So it's I rely on the specificity of acting choices to create the nuance that makes them sound different. Rather than affecting sound but the sound of it won't feel different. She attended to wonder woman. Premier and here are her thoughts on that movie. Oh she's amazing. What movie was crazy? Yeah I had so much fun. We actually in Los Angeles. We bought out an entire theater. It wasn't all girls it was all everybody was there. women whatever and We had a great time It was it was such a powerful room to be there to support that to see all the little girls or gosh an all all little girls. WanNa be wondering when for Halloween. I love that. She's worked on young justice and she talks about that role as wonder woman. Yeah writers they have all these cards all over. The walls like no spoilers but it is like a wallpaper of characters. There's so many I don't know how they keep it straight I thought game of thrones was hard. This is yeah young justice's really really complicated in a great way and how they managed to keep it together is I think it's GonNa be fun to see. The young justice fans have been so fantastic in. Oh Man we had so much fun. We all get together. We're all fans so you know we have these meet. Ups and At San Diego Comic Con. I think it was. I don't even know what your was your we could we go meet out in the back and hang out and sometimes they'll do screenings at a local diner in Los Angeles so the fact that the fans really made that happen it just shows you how close we are. And we're we were just beyond throats. Yeah so grateful and all the actors are in an urgent such kind people. No one's complicated. There are no divas. No no haters drama. James Greg is a writer producer on movies like Batman by gaslight flashpoint paradox and produce justice league action and the Green Lantern. The animated series. I mean I think we're going strong and you'd be there people ask. What are you almost out? And it's like no we're not out one. There's so many great stories that you already know that you want to see that. Hopefully we're going to get to what the other is evidently. Dc keeps making comics every single month. Something you know. Yeah and sometimes you know this is really good. And I'd like to see this as a movie and if you wait three and a half years that might happen. Which story lines could you not or would not do you know. Never say never. Because they're they're ones that we said we'd never do that. We're learning well. You know what happens? Is you think that graphic novel wasn't as good as I remember so I don't want to do it but then somebody comes with an idea. Take on it. That makes you go. Oh that would make it really cool and it would stay you know In faithful with the other. And he also talks about replacing. Alan Burnett that Allen it it should be a title like Caesar. Like Julius. Caesar Caesar Octavian was also Caesar and then you just past the town. So I'm Alan and then when I'm assassinated they'll pick a new album and they'll always be now you know and they will just go on in perpetuity so so for. This is your Allen's gone actor Jason o'meara brought his own style within the parameters of voicing. I think I think the the trilogy you know. Some Bama and Batman versus Robin and Batman. Bad Blood Was really where I got a chance to sort of make my own. The storyline got richer and You know we got a sense of what? This version of a Batman was and there aren't many movies that really serialize story like that because he's a movie it's not a TV show so it's like you know a real proper trilogy of animated features so If I had to pick a movie out of that trilogy I'd probably say son of Batman only because it was my first shot at a standalone Batman movie which is kind of a thrill with his name on the poster but at the same time I think that the I think the movie's got better. I think they got more entertaining. As they went along son Batman we were like establishing the World Batman versus Robin. We kinda like the empire strikes back of the trilogy but then by Mom Bod blood I thought was probably the most entertaining overall. You know having watched each one with a live audience. That was the feedback is like I don't know if I'm right or wrong but But because it was the first that was not my first time by in Batman but the first time on I probably the animated movies reached a new level. What it's I R. Rated feature the killing joke here is. Tara strong who voiced bat girl and she comments about controversial which some fans of these sex scene between bat girl and Batman. Killing joke is one of my most proud things I've worked on. I just love that film so much and I love all the emotional places we got to go with her and depart from the comic book. Looks exactly like the Comic Book and then the other stuff is just so interesting and you know some people got annoyed. I'm like well. They're not related. And she's a grown woman so she's making choices and I didn't think it was gratuitous. I just thought it was. I thought it's such a beautiful movie. So thank you for. The DC. Animated Movies have certainly increased the awareness and the interest and DC universe. You can say what you will about the movie universe but the animated universe has been very healthy because of these talented people that had been involved. And there're still more to come. Thanks for joining me. I'm Tony Tomato. Hi I'm George. Decay and I listened to sci-fi talk..
"dc" Discussed on The Cave - A DC Universe Podcast
"You're listening to Sifi talk with Tony. Collado is joy a milestone occurred when DC? Animation celebrated their tenth anniversary after making over thirty movies. Amazing in this special here from some of those who contributed taped near Comic Con. Bruce W TIM is an animation. Legend although he doesn't consider himself that he's just a man that believes in these characters and has worked very hard to tell those stories that we as fans wanted to see. I think it's constantly. There's always going to be a mix of both original stories and adaptations. We're constantly looking at things. If pre existence the at what are the fans what they they really WanNa see. We're the ones that are constantly in our exit polls that that people are constantly saying yeah. We want you to do this one but at the same time. Sit Down at the same time. We're costly talking amongst ourselves and say Oh yeah you know what we haven't done yet are? Here's a character that we haven't really focused on yet that we could do in terms of a justice. League movie are Batman Movie. Or you know whatever I think. There's going to be a mix of both original stories and adaptations. What about like alternate stories like Todd's monster that we well in terms of alternate universe type stuff The only thing that I can confirm it's already been announced as Batman. Gotham by gaslight which is the original else world story. I think a lot depends on how that one does sales wise Honestly Gods and monsters did. Okay wasn't great. So nobody's banging down the door to see gods and monsters to I. I've got a LOT OF INTERESTING FANS. Fancied really like it but not with their checkbook. They didn't but Gaza monsters is is really exciting for us to to be able to do different genre to do a more of a horror movie slash slash period. Piece thing yeah it was it was it was It was it was a lot of fun to try different shades. You know give us Batman but different shades of Batman so so hopefully they might be something along those lines again. Vote with your with your paycheck. With your with your. You know your one click button. Alan Burnett was involved with Batman. The animated series as a producer and was even killed by the joker one of the early episodes. He talks about the stories of the animated movies he enjoyed in that universe. Why really liked was different reasons? Small Movie Small Personal Story. It was under the foot and and it was just very beautifully told when I saw at comic on the larger screens I was I. Was you know you're looking at television screen? And you just don't. Sometimes you're you're you're you're making and when I saw on the big screen I actually. They had a second shot and I actually just stay in my seat and watch it again with less. People just wanted to see it again because it was a Beaut- beautiful director. That's so but I like them all to various degrees. I think they're all. I think it's amazing package. I mean I can't believe that done thirty and they're you know there's more pipeline nine other half dozen talk some involvement with five retired. So they'RE IN OTHER PEOPLE'S HANDS. It's great and for me. It was doubly great because I've worked on a lot of series. At-work DOWN Fifteen series. Some of them were eighty five episodes. Some of them were miniseries but I did not beat that grind anymore so When this came along it was an you're dealing and you're dealing with different every couple of months it's great and new characters just it was it. Was God something It's hard to believe I was on nearly ten years by was he's probably asked this question many times. But what character would you like to see featured that hasn't been so far? There's a lot that don't get enough respect that the dead man swamping But the one that we the one that we have not featured in any of that I would like to see done do perjury and So maybe someday Bruce had been working on animated series really since the Nineteen Ninety S. He wanted to take a step back from producing a bit. So James Tucker came in diversified help increase the attention to the DC animated movies but Justice League dark. Yeah that was a good game and get Matt Ryan to do. It was even more awesome. Yeah he's Great. Well a movie did well so the chances are high will do another one. And he's doing a seed w thing now. So he's he loves being. Constantine so he recounts some of the highlights of the animated films so far for him hard. Because I've done in continuity titles and of those probably I love justly dark but I think Judas contract was the harder nut to crack. Because that's something fans have wanted for a long time and it was hard. It was a difficult story to break and I think we did. We did justice to it. So you know Other than that. My other favorite one flashpoint was the first one they really but Assault on Arkham was probably a bigger surprise for me and I think I had more fun watching that with an audience just because it was you know we were following up a video game and I think that's really a lot of fun and it's pretty dirty and and tawdry so the continuity titles her what I consider a fan favorite. He talks about how they got started the continuity titles Basically were tasked around the time new fifty two. The comments were doing new fifty two. When I got the GIG I'm jumping back. But when I got the gig versus doing green lantern the series and I just thought I'd be stepping in and and keep you know doing the non con- you know. There was no continuity at the time we had a whole other script ready to go. Flashpoint was one of them and Unbound I did those two and then there was another script. We hadn't production and then our bosses from home video and animation came and said you know. Let's stop that we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA start a new universe. Basically that was a Monday and by Friday we had carried. It was that fast and so we had to use the new fifty two that was set up as a starting point but that was never the intention was never did. Just keep doing that to me. I used it as a way to have continuity around stories that needed some setup like Judas contract there were plans to do that as an isolated standalone. But there's no way to really you'd almost have to do a titans before that for me. The continuity titles have been great. Because there's way we've been using it as ways to introduce these let not lesser known characters but characters who may not have an easy green light with the home-video people you know we did justice league versus Teen Titans as a way to say. Here's the Justice League we'RE GONNA put teen titans with them as long as we had just again it. Everyone who is fine with teen titans and that did really well. Now they're like. Why don't you do a teen titans movie? Well I've been wanting to for years so but basically the approaches to build on each movie and to you know. Now we're at a place where we've done so many of them that you know we have a movie coming up where care. It's like the Marvel Universe where now iron man can show up in somebody else's movie and it's no one's going. Oh Wow this iron man. It's like Oh Yeah Iron. Man's there so that's what we're trying to achieve with the in continuity titles where people can cross over each other's movies we can introduce new characters and then spend the mall in an upcoming movie. I'm really looking forward to the death of Superman comments on. That's another one where because we have a continuity set up you know. We have a superman that we watched in a few movies We're able to bring characters that may not have made sense in a standalone movie I mean roosted doomsday the first one and it was just really impossible to say. Oh Hey here's steel. Oh Hey here's a radical leader whereas we have a framework now where we can introduce characters and there's some context All I can say about as we're trying to stay true to the to the feel of those stories even though even two movies doesn't cover the whole saga of the death and return of Superman. How does it feel when the impact of these reaches more than Flash Flash Movie.
"dc" Discussed on Monster: DC Sniper
"Something like that. That happens to you. You'll never forget it. Here's Paula Rufa again. The victim shot on September fifth. Two thousand two. I've always said you're never over it over it in the sense that well it was nothing. I barely remember what happened. It was like tripping on the sidewalk. It was just nothing. That's just never going to happen. It doesn't haunt me and it doesn't affect me negatively. I like to think that it affected me. Positively people say all the time well live for today. You never know you could be dead tomorrow. I experienced it where it could have ended in a split second. So that's something positive that you think about that. You know it can end anytime so you do make it affect how you act you. Try to act maybe differently than you did before. I've gone on with my life and enjoy life and it just hasn't affected me negatively. That's a good thing. The Rufus has the anniversary of the shooting is a special day every year on September fifth. My brother calls me at ten fifteen night to celebrate my survival because he. He's the more outgoing about things. My two sisters and my other brother are more in the area of. They don't like to talk about it because they think it hurts me an an and it hurts them to talk about it. But my other brother's more understanding of of where I am so my wife and I have a toast and my youngest brother calls me and we celebrate the fact that I got shot at that moment but that I lived and so he calls me and says glad you're alive and I say thanks and we talk for a few minutes and and that is emotional. The stories of these survivors are just a few of the thousands of stories surrounding the DC SNIPER. Saga while making this podcast. It seemed like nearly everyone. We spoke to had some story or connection to the case whether they lived in the DC area at the time and remember having to pump gas from behind a blue tarp or knew someone who was affected by the shootings. This was a story that impact that the DC area and an entire nation in chilling ways. And as we're seeing today the after effects continue to influence the daily lives in uncertain futures of countless others we also learned over the course of producing this podcast that the lies of these killers are complex as well. There are so many factors involved in their actions but I make sure to never lose sight of the fact that the consequences of their actions are devastating for victims and their loved ones. We are curious people perhaps morbidly so we WANNA know more about the people who kill and why they do it. We call the monsters. I think because we can't come up with another term that captures our shock fear and outrage at their actions as a journalist. I will continue to try to explain the seemingly unexplainable and I'll continue to ask you to consider all the factors that go into building a life breaking alive and destroying life. Maybe when we understand these complexities better. We can create a world with a little more empathy a world. That's hopefully free of monsters. I'm Tony Harris and this is monster. Dc SNIPER.
