In episode 30 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo will welcome back Bob Fisher for the first time during his coverage of the second season of The Adventures of Superman.

First they will meet a young boy who thinks he took a picture revealing his secret identity? Did it? Clark sure thinks it does, but is that enough to turn Superman into an arsonist? And does this episode actually give us multiple shirt rips?

But just don’t use the Burt Burnside insurance company you may not like his policy.

So, come join Mike and Bob as they take “A Shot in the Dark.”

Then it’s time for some Kryptonite-fueled goodness. Well, good for everyone except Superman. As he learns … or relearns - we’re not really sure … of the effects the metal might have on him.

Can it hurt him? Can it hurt humans? Find out how exactly master criminal Happy King engineers “The Defeat of Superman”.

In episode 30 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo will take you on a journey of mysticism and eventually government espionage.

Metropolis is under siege by the mysterious phantom burglar and the Metropolis police can’t seem to get a beat on him. So why do Lois and Jimmy feel they can take the phantom? And what is it about this mysterious top that leads Lois and Clark to a swanky Metropolis nightclub.

What is the story of the mysterious swami. Is he part of the crime wave or is he truly “The Man Who Could Read Minds”?

Then it’s time for some government work as test pilot Chris White – who also happens to be Perry White’s nephew – nearly has a mid-air accident sending some shady characters after his report. Will they find it? What will happen to Chris?

And which member of the Daily Planet crew does Chris find to be “swell”?

So come with me and meet, the “Jet Ace”.

In episode 29 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo begins season 2 of “The Adventures of Superman” and will re-introduce listeners to Noel Neill in the role of Lois Lane.

For those of you who remember, she portrayed Lois Lane during the serials with Kirk Alyn. Find out how Ms. Neill changed the show’s dynamic and turned the group into a true ensemble.

Then, the coverage begins. See Neill’s radiant smile as she plays devil’s advocate to Clark Kent as he tries to prove a man on death row is innocent and prevent an execution in “Five Minutes to Doom.”

Then Clark may have picked the wrong person as the Daily Planet’s Citizen of the Year. What is Dan Grayson hiding and what happens when a figure from the past stumbles onto his secret?

And how exactly does Perry White expect Jimmy Olsen to handle the “et cetera”?

Find out in “The Big Squeeze”.

In episode 28 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo finishes the inaugural season of The Adventures of Superman on his own with coverage of the final two episodes of what he calls “Season 1 Proper”.

First it’s a trip to the Pacific Northwest because a werewolf is scaring all the lumberjacks off the job. That means no pulpwood. And for the Daily Planet, no pulpwood means no paper. So, what does Perry White do? He sends his reporters to investigate?

Is it actually a werewolf? Jimmy thinks it is, but then again, Jimmy will believe anything. And why is the wolf laughing at Lois? Did she say something funny? Who is in charge of this frolic in the woods? And why exactly does this episode decide it doesn’t want to be a mystery 75 percent through.

Find out as we investigate, the “Ghost Wolf”.

Then it’s back to Metropolis for the final episode of the season as Superman goes after the No. 1 crime boss in the city. Who is this mystery man? Is he someone we know or does he exist?

Superman will have to figure that out as he does his civic duty in “Crime Wave,” one of Mike’s favorite episodes of the series.

Find out why.

In episode 27 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo welcomes back Bob Fisher as they try to get this episode in before the time limit is up.

First, our intrepid podcasters will show that they like to live life on the edge as they stand on the ledge with Bet-A-Million Butler and Lois Lane as they try to keep themselves under control while Superman remains a man of few words.

What does Jimmy do that’s really stupid? What else does Jimmy do that’s really stupid? And can Superman REALLY do something that Perry White can’t do.

Mike is reliving a moment from childhood and why is Bob constantly singing during this episode? Find out as they attempt to diffuse “The Human Bomb”.

NO COMMENT UNTIL THE TIME LIMIT IS UP!!!!!

Then, it’s off to the movies. No. Not to the theatre, but to HOLLYWOOD so Superman can show us how movies are made.

They’ll discuss crime, stupid henchman and Bill Henderson eat another man’s steak. Plus, what does Superman do that makes them think they should call the police?

Neither of these podcasters may be Superman, but they might have to be to get this episode completed in a timely fashion. Join them as they track down “The Czar of the Underworld.”

In episode 26 of the Man of Screen podcast, Bob Fisher will join Mike Zummo for what appears to be a fishing trip gone wrong.

Perry White and Jimmy Olsen decide to park for the night at the Hotel Bayou, which Perry remembers to be a “fine hotel.” But things are far from fine as Jimmy and the chief encounter the dead owner’s nephew, a mysterious colonel, and a crazy cackling woman? What about the ghost that continues to haunt the place?

Who you gonna call? SU-PER-MAN!!!!

Then find out what the dead hotel owner has in common with a former Golden Age newspaper editor as we encounter “The Evil Three.”

Then it’s off to Chinatown for an unveiling as Lu Sung plans to donate the invaluable Quan Yin Jade to the U.S. as a show of appreciation for what the country has done for him and his family. But others would rather see the statue stolen and sold.

Who’s involved? Why is Henderson so upset with Clark in this episode and above all who is the guy in the circus suit?

Find out as Clark Kent and Inspector Henderson answer “The Riddle of the Chinese Jade.”

In episode 6 of The Man of Screen Extra, Mike Zummo completes his four-part miniseries on the DCEU movies with a look at the latest release, “Suicide Squad.”

Did Mike love it? Hate it? Kind of like it? Did it bring the crazy like he expected? Well, you’ll just have to listen to the episode to find out as Mike introduces you to the characters, treats you to a synopsis, and then gives a detailed rambling on his thoughts on the film. AND his thoughts about how important Superman is to the DCEU.

Detailed rambling because Mike recorded this episode without taking a word of notes.

PODCASTER GENERAL WARNING: This episode contains SPOILERS for “Suicide Squad”.

In episode 25 of the Man of Screen podcast, it’s time for a mix of science fiction and voodoo as Mike takes you through the next two episodes of The Adventures of Superman.

Meet Horatio Hinkle, Daily Planet rural correspondent, eccentric inventor, and the guy the Daily Planet staff desperately wishes would stop talking. And then meet his robot hero, which walks around about as well as you would expect a man in a metal suit to do so. Find out what the eccentric nerd does to get past his guard Jimmy Olsen? And did Mike really compare him to Batman? What is going on here?

Plus you’re not going to want to miss what really burns Inspector Henderson’s butt about “The Runaway Robot.”

And then it’s off to the jungles of Haiti as we search for Perry White’s sister and Jimmy Olsen, who disappeared while investigating a citadel. Who is this mysterious voodoo witch doctor and what are the jungle drums really telling us? And what does Clark do to keep the Haitian government officials in a state of confusion.

And can you believe that voodoo drum language is not offered at Harvards?

So grab your percussion-English dictionary as Mike deciphers the “Drums of Death”.

In episode 24 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo will be on his own for a look at the next two episodes of The Adventures of Superman, one featuring an ex-Nazi war criminal and some duality, and then it’s on to the wax museum to find the next death sculpture.

Find out what happens when Jimmy is approached by a strange woman who asks him to hand a package to a pair of ambulance drivers. Find out what happens when he’s taken to the doctor and how exactly did Clark get to Germany and back so fast? Inspector Henderson might have an idea.

Plus, what is it about Superman that makes him look as pretty as a moviestar to Jimmy Olsen?

But between a man disguising himself as a woman and a pair of identical twins, Superman will certainly find himself up against some “Double Trouble.”

Then, things take a turn for the creepy as Madame Selena is making wax sculptures and her subjects are meeting an untimely end. Which Daily Planet member is marked for death and what exactly are Madame Selena’s motives in this deadly game?  Plus, you won’t want to miss her Hall of Death.

Find out who gets waxed and you won’t want to miss Madame Selena’s insane cackle. It will give you goose bumps.

So, follow the Daily Planet crew as they attempt to solve the “Mystery in Wax.”

On this fifth episode of Man of Screen Extra, Mike Zummo takes a detour from his DCEU miniseries, but not really that much of a detour. Considering the content, though, this just makes it a four-part miniseries instead of a three-parter.

This time, Mike will be joined by Scott McGregor of the Two True Freaks Podcast Network to chat about some of the DC film and TV offerings displayed at San Diego Comic Con in late July. They’ll discuss the trailers for “Justice League”, “Wonder Woman” and “Suicide Squad.” Listen as Mike and Scott make Internet history showing two people who have different opinions of Batman v. Superman can have a civil conversation and find areas to agree upon.

And then, they’ll transition to the small screen as they’ll sift through the offerings from “The Flash”, “Arrow” and “Legends of Tomorrow.” But no “Supergirl”? Very little as the show hadn’t started production since moving its sets to Vancouver from Los Angeles.

So, sit back or do whatever it is you do while listening to podcasts and let Mike and Scott tell you what they think of the DC film and TV comic con footage.

Find out.
