ARROW NEWS:

  1. ARROW’s Upcoming Season So Gritty That CW’s Censors Had To Be Called In (Date: 16 Aug 2018)

He said that he’s bringing in some of the classic feelings of the inaugural season, but also with some new elements mixed in. “In the premiere you will find some elements with the Season 1 feel, but you will find other elements that is new, uncharted territory,” said Bamford. James said he and the newly-promoted showrunner Beth Schwartz have intense plans for this fall that led them to having a meeting with the networko’s censors. “Beth and I had a phone call with BNSP, which is our censors… a very lengthy phone call about a particular scene that we never had before. So we are really trying to push the limits on the show in the gritty factor,” Bamford revealed. “We are trying to go as far as you can go within the confines of our network and what is expected of us and what we can and can’t do. We are not on Netflix so we will never be able to X, Y, and Z, but we are damn sure going to try.”

ARROW CAST & INTERVIEWS:

  1. ‘Supergirl’s’ Brent Spiner Exits as Season 4 Role Recast With Bruce Boxleitner (Date: 21 Aug 2018)
    1. Brent Spiner’s scheduling issues have forced the Star Trek grad to depart the series in order to attend to a family matter that conflicts with the production dates. Bruce Boxleitner (Tron, Babylon 5) will take over as Baker, who is described as adept and politically minded, an unlikely leader who steps up in a big way up when his country needs him most.
    2. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/supergirl-brent-spiner-exits-bruce-boxleitner-cast-1136264
  2. The Flash: Wally West Will Appear in Three Episodes in Season 5 (Date: 14 Aug 2018)
    1. “You will see Wally in the first episode. He is in three episodes this season,” showrunner Todd Helbing confirmed. “We don’t have as much time with Kid Flash as I think everyone would like to see, but the story we have for him is really cool.”
    2. https://www.cbr.com/flash-season-5-wally-west-episodes/
  3. LEGENDS OF TOMORROW Season 4 Will Reportedly Feature A Wolf Creature In A Recurring Role (Date: 13 Aug 2018)
    1. Legends is looking to cast a currently unnamed Wolf Creature. The role is open to male and female actors of any ethnicity, but they do want the performer to be “in their late 20-40s.” Description: This alter ego is always looking for a fight and cruising for a bruising, in the Legends’ best interest. Despite its intelligence, the Wolf Creature tends to look at things through black and white while also lacking social skills. His/her relationship with the Legends will be quite an uneasy one. The Wolf Creature tends to be loyal to those that they consider their tribe. They can also be impulsive and act quite selfishly from time to time, but that’s because of their natural animal instincts. They transform into this Wolf Creature when they are angry or experiencing emotional pain or turmoil.

ARROW NEWS:

  1. The Flash Season 5 Trailer Adds a New Speedster to the Team (Date: 21 July 2018)
    1. The trailer begins by recapping the events from the Season 4 finale, where Nora helped Barry stop a satellite from crashing into Central City to her surprise identity reveal.

  2. The Flash Casts Chris Klein As Season 5’s Big Villain (Date: 21 July 2018)
    1. Chris Klein, known for his roles in Election and American Pie, will play the primary antagonist in the upcoming fifth season of The Flash. The actor will portray Central City’s newest menace, the DC supervillain Cicada. Introduced in 2001 by Geoff Johns and Scott Kolins in The Flash #170, the Cicada of the comics is David Hersch who was filled with regret after murdering his wife when he was struck by lightning. As a result, he gained the ability to absorb the life-force of others, allowing him to dramatically extend his life. Believing he was somehow linked to The Flash by the similar accidents in which they gained their powers, Hersch founded a cult whose members were dedicated to murdering everyone the Scarlet Speedster ever saved, using lightning bolt-shaped daggers. As the result of a vision, Hersch believed that the energy from all the people The Flash saved, and from the hero himself, would allow him to resurrect his dead wife.

ARROW NEWS:

 

  1. Arrow’s First Season 7 Synopsis Teases a Major New Villain (Date: 25 June 2018)
    1. According to Warner Bros. Television’s description for the Arrow Comic-Con International in San Diego panel, “There has been no shortage of close calls for Oliver Queen when it comes to protecting his Super Hero identity, but in the season six finale, he was finally backed into a corner and forced to reveal himself to the world as the Green Arrow. Now, Oliver will come face-to-face with many of the criminals he placed behind bars, as he makes a new home for himself at Slabside Maximum Security Prison. Oliver will find himself vulnerable in a way unlike ever before when a mysterious new enemy begins to unravel his work as Green Arrow, challenging him to redeem his name or risk losing everything.” Arrow returns to The CW on Monday, October 15 at 8 pm ET/PT

  2. Arrow Showrunner Reveals Season 7 Premiere Title (Date: 27 June 2018)
    1. Dark days are undoubtedly ahead for the character, who is now stuck in a place filled with prisoners the Green Arrow helped imprison — and it’s only about to get from bad to worse. The new showrunner of Arrow revealed that the title of the Season 7 premiere is “Inmate 4587,” hinting that life behind bars will certainly not be easy for Oliver Queen. Oliver’s inmate number, 4587 is an Easter egg in and of itself, considering that it was the agent number of Vinnie Terranova, the main character of the classic television series Wiseguy. But on top of that, this also isn’t the first time these numbers have appeared in the Arrowverse. Most notably, it was the number of a warehouse in the Legends of Tomorrow episode “Star City 2046,” an episode that presented viewers with a very dark future for Green Arrow’s beloved city.

That was until Constantine arrived to inform them that, in solving one major problem, they have created another, much larger one. When the Legends let time crumble in order to release and defeat Mallus, the barrier between worlds softened. History is now infected with “Fugitives” – magical creatures from myths, fairytales, and legends. Having been expelled throughout time by people like Constantine, these Fugitives are now returning to our world in droves and making a real mess of things. So when all hell breaks loose, who ya gonna call? That’s right, the Legends!”

  4. Legends of Tomorrow: Major S3 Character Confirms Her Season 4 Return (Date: 26 June 2018)
    1. Maisie Richardson-Sellers is returning as Amaya Jiwe/Vixen in Legends season 4. Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim noted that Richardson-Sellers would return, “Yes, Maisie will absolutely be back. We just felt like we owed it to the character to complete this arc, complete this story loop that we got her in. Once we took her off of her path in 1942, it was always incumbent upon us to return her to that path. That was something that hung over us as writers, and hung over the character… I’m looking forward to a different storyline for Amaya next year.”

GENERAL DC NEWS:

 

  1. THE FLASH Actor Keiynan Lonsdale Reveals Kid Flash Exit Was His Choice As He Bids Farewell To The Role (Date: 08 June 2018)
    1. It was recently announced that Keiynan Lonsdale who plays Wally West in the CW’s Arrow-verse shows would not be returning as series regular for season 4 of the network’s Legends of Tomorrow, the news came as a surprise for some while others had expected it after feeling the writers had little left to do with the character. In a Twitter post, Lonsdale revealed that the decision to depart the DC adaptation was his, revealing that this wasn’t a total goodbye as well explaining to fans and thanking them for their support. “I’ve changed a lot in the past year (as you’ve probably notice lol), and for infinite reasons, my perspective on life & what I want from it now is just completely different. Because of that, my heart told me it was the right time to continue my journey on an unknown path.”

Better Podcasting #138 – Video Podcasts: Reloaded

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

By listener request, we’re talking about video podcasts again. A lot has changed since we last spoke (episode 14, 15, 16, 17) which is why this week we’re giving an overview of the information we think is most relevant to podcasters wanting to start doing video.

In this week’s Better Podcasting Download we discuss a Google Podcasts issue Stephen encountered, a weird RSS thing that happened with Castbox and how Anchor changed their terms of service.

Finally, in this week’s Better podback, we talk about the theory of a “Netflix of podcasting”.
