A while back, RevolutionsSF co-founder Joe Crowe sat down with author Adam-Michaels James to discuss the classic TV series, Bewtched.  Adam-Michaels has just published the authoritative source on the show, the Bewitched Continuum and he discusses the origin of his fandom of the show.  He and Joe discuss the episodes, the characters and the actors who played them and the overall fandom. It's a wide-rangng discussion full of infomation that will make you the master of the Betwitched questions that come up in your next Trival Pursuit pub night.

Our theme music this episode is "Cultists On Board" by the Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, courtesy of Divine Industries.

Summer is half over, but Hollywood still wants access to your wallet. They have brought a myriad of offerings to seperate you from your money. Co-hosts Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel are joined by movie queen Tegan Hendrickson to discuss the films and make their recommendations. There is speculation about what to call Benedict Cumberbatch’s new baby. They also come to an agreement that it's time to retire the shaky cam. And for some reason, Deanna expresses a desire to visit a Lego spa.

Back in 2012, our RevNews took a look at the state of the portrayal and treatment of women in geek media. Now WITNESS US as host Gary Mitchel is joined by talented lady geeks Tegan Hendrickson, Christina Janke, Jarrah Hodge and KC Ryan to return to the topic in the wake of the debate over Black Widow's role in "Age of Ultron", female characters in comics, and the awesomeness that is Imperator Furiosa in "Mad Max: Fury Road"!

Listen as they discuss the horror of the MRA "paradise" at the heart of "Bitch Planet"; cover Spider-Gwen, Squirrel-Girl, Silk and more of Marvel's collection of new female heroes; KC's take on Black Widow's reveal of what happened in the Red Room; Tegan's insight into why we analyse female characters in media so intently; the group's frustration over the lack of female action figures; how Mad Max is a Manic Pixie Dream Guy; Tegan's inability to judge what's appropriate for kids; why Furiosa is so important as a character, especially today; the cast's inability to get away from creepy ick factors and Max's real lost love interest.

A long time ago, on a different podcast, Gary Mitchel gathered some sages of the DC universe to discuss the first half of the inagural season of CW's The Flash.  But, lo, there were technical difficulties and Gary was unable to fix the problems  Brave RevCast Producer, Deanna Toxopeus, took on the thankless project in an attempt to rescue the podcast.  These many months later, we are ready to release the final resulst to the net.

So join Gary as he sits down with the world's Flash expert, Shaun Rosado, Superman expert Michael Bailey, Revolution SF co-founder Joe Crowe and the forementioned Deanna, as they discuss the first half of the first season of Flash. You'll laugh.  You'll cry.  You'll kiss at least one hour goodbye.

This one ran long, so this will be the first of two parts.  Check our Part 1 if you missed it.
