Podcast Spotlight – The Secret World Chronicle

February 20, 2013

Hello  ladies and gentlemen!

Superheroes.  We see them everywhere.  In comic books, on T.V., in the movies, and anywhere they sell toys and figures.  They are a source of inspiration when portrayed right, and a source of punchlines and fan rage when not.  Being a former comic book collector (hopefully will be once again), and a big fan of superhero in all media forms, I wanted to share a podcast that had me hooked from the first action packed episode — The Secret World Chronicle.

The series begins with a massive sneak attack by advanced armored power suits and giant floating orbs against some major cities around the world.  The machinery all bear symbols not seen on war machines since World War II, that of the Nazi party.  The hero groups of the world, caught completely off guard, do their best to beat back the war machines and protect as many lives as possible.  This results in the deaths of many heroes and emergence of others.

With masterful writing by authors Mercedes Lackey, Dennis Lee, Cody Martin, Steve Libby, and Veronica Giguere (who also expertly narrates all but a couple of the first episodes), the stories are immersive and grab you immediately.  There are wonderful insights into practically all the superheroes, both in combat and not.  When something major happens, you can’t help but feel the excitement or sense of loss the characters also feel.  A word of warning to anyone checking the series out for the first tine… once you listen to a couple of episodes, you may find yourself counting down the days until the next new episode is available.

To check these stories  out, you can subscribe to the podcast feed through the ITunes store, the individual seasons at Podiobooks, or by checking out the official website.

As always, if you want to leave a comment, please do so below.  Let me know your opinion  and feel free to share mine with your friends, family, and yes, even your enemies.  I’m on FacebookTwitterGoogle +, and can also be reached via e-mail at dpitsiladis@gmail.com.

And remember… Why so serious?
