On the third episode of DC TV Classics, your hosts Keith Chow and Britney Monae are joined by Wonder Woman herself, Susan Eisenberg of Justice League and Justice League Unlimited to talk about her time in the golden tiara. With 2016 being the 75th anniversary of the creation of Wonder Woman, Susan looks back at the character’s significance to her career and to the culture at large. They also discuss favorite episodes of JL/JLU, reminisce about Diana’s flirty relationship with Batman, and emphasize the importance of voice over actors and why they deserve respect in the industry.
On the second episode of DC TV Classics, your hosts Keith Chow and Britney Monae are joined by pop culture historian Alan Kistler to reflect on the television program that started it all: The Adventures of Superman starring George Reeves! Since its launch in 1952, The Adventures of Superman proves that DC Comics superheroes have been an indelible part of television since the inception of the medium. In addition to reminiscing about George Reeves’ Superman, this episode also touches on the mysterious details surrounding Reeves’ death – which were dramatized in the 2006 film Hollywoodland starring Ben Affleck – and debate whether the “curse of Superman” actually exists. Also: news from New York Comic-Con, including the sequel to Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders starring William Shatner as Two-Face and the debut of Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77 by Jeff Parker and Mark Andreyko!
On the first episode of DC TV Classics, your hosts Keith Chow, Britney Monae and Ken Knudtsen, get together to introduce themselves to the listening audience as they debut the newest podcast in the DC TV Podcasts Network.

This weekend, I’m proud to announce that I have teamed up with the DCTV Podcast network to launch their newest bi-weekly show: DCTV Classics, where we will be reminiscing about iconic and classic TV shows such as The Adventures of Superman, Batman ’66, Wonder Woman, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Smallville, Batman: The Animated Series, and more.
DC TV Podcasts, a podcast network for multiple high-quality DC Comics TV dedicated podcasts, is expanding with an eighth podcast that is all about taking a trip down memory lane in the DC TV world: DC TV Classics!
DC TV Classics is a fan podcast devoted to iconic and classic TV shows based on characters of DC Comics that happened long before today’s modern DC adaptations on television. Shows such as The Adventures of Superman, Batman ’66, Wonder Woman, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Smallville, Batman: The Animated Series, and more favorites will be covered on this podcast.
I first met Chops back in 1999 when the Mountain Brothers were at the peak of their powers. They came down to Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA to perform at an event for the Asian Pacific American Student Union, a group I founded the year before. Needless to say, they blew the roof off of Webb Center and solidified APASU as a legit organization on campus. So after the show, and some late night IHOP pancakes, we bid the Bros — Chops, Peril, and Styles — adieu, and I was content with my signed Self: Volume One CD and brief brush with Asian American hip-hop royalty.
Fast forward a decade and a half later — and thanks to the wonder of social media — Chops and I reconnected. Weirdly, he remembered who I was. So we met up one chilly night in Philly earlier this year. That’s when he first told me about Strength in NUMBERSover some beer and cheesesteaks. He even previewed just the tiniest snippet of a track while we rode around in his big ass Buick. Instantly, I realized how historic this project was going to be. I mean, an MBs reunion alone would be game-changing. Now you’re gonna throw in 30 other artists (including the likes of Dumbfoundead, Prometheus Brown, Rekstizzy, Rocky Rivera and dozens of others)? What? That’s a who’s-who of APA hip-hop right there! Then, here’s the part that blew my mind. He wanted my help. Say wha?
