The Justice League as 8 year olds, dealing with everyday life? Yes please! I am not sure when I read my first ever JL8 strip but I know that I was hooked from the moment I saw the charming characters. I got to speak with award-winning cartoonist Yale Stewart about his life, comics, Superman, integrity and his JL8 webcomic that has fans all over the world. It was fascinating to hear how these characters came to be and the origin story of this artist/writer. 00:00 Intro 02:30 Yale’s origin story 10:44 The birth of JL8 14:38 Releasing the comics online 21:00 “You have to wear a lot of hats” 25:17 Superman’s compassion 30:29 The Amazing Adventures Of Superman 38:00 Working for yourself vs working for someone else 45:23 Neil Gaiman 50:31 The Future of JL8 1:07:00 Favourite issues 1:10:50 The fans 1:19:03 How the world can get more JL8 1:25:06 “What does Superman mean to you?” 1:32:32 Outro The JL8 Comic: https://jl8comic.tumblr.com/ If you want more JL8 (Yale has a lot more stories to share!) then this is where you can support Yale: patreon.com/yalestewart Yale's store: https://yalestewart.bigcartel.com/ Yale's Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/yalestewartart Yale's Twitter: https://twitter.com/YaleStewart Yale's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/yalestewart/ JL8 on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jl8comiclol/ Thanks for listening to The Podcast Of Steel.

EP 70 | Speaking with Karl  Heitmueller Jr. "The Daily Superman"EP 69 | Special Guest - Jonathan Sands68 | News, reviews and interviews!EP 67 | How telephone boxes are saving lives | Speaking with Community Heartbeat Trust
I’m not sure how many times over the years Clark Kent has used a phone box/booth to transform into Superman but I know it’s a lot! Once upon a time you would see the iconic red phone box on every street corner. These days everyone has a mobile phone so sadly they are not needed as much. I feel this is a real shame as I love that bright red exterior and I would hate them to disappear. Thanks to the Community HeartBeat Trust though they are helping to keep their memory alive in the most heroic way, by using them to store life-saving defibrillators. “Defibrillators (also known as AEDs) are medical devices that help and support a rescue for a  patient in Cardiac Arrest. They achieve this by applying a current of electricity across the heart to stop it, allowing it to reconfigure automatically. Defibrillators are not "Heart Re-starters" - any sign indicating this is wrong! Death from Cardiac Arrest if untreated is about 97% of cases. With the correct and rapid treatment, survival to hospital can, in theory, be raised to around the 70% mark, but this assumes rapid action, good CPR (Chest compressions) and also the timely use of a defibrillator.” Recently I spoke with CHT on an episode of The Podcast Of Steel as I wanted to know more about this great organisation of heroes. I was joined by Martin Fagan( the national secretary of CHT) and Tom Bowtell( (the CEO of BCF, who help out with the organisation in a big way). We talked all about the history of HCF and why the work they are doing with communities is so important. We can all be heroes without the superpowers when we start working together and being a strong community. We can be our own Justice League!

EP66 | Visiting Park Row - A Batman Inspired Restaurant
Recently I was invited to Park Row. A brand new restaurant in London that has a Batman/DC Comics twist. It’s the first DC-inspired gastronomic restaurant experience found anywhere in the world and I can’t wait to go back. “With a focus on first-class dining and storytelling, it is home to five restaurant and bar spaces, each taking the guest on a journey from the streets of London to the depths of Gotham’s underworld. Drawing inspiration from some of Gotham’s most famous (and infamous) residents, including The Penguin, Harley Quinn, The Joker, Catwoman and more, each space has its own signature style, providing a whole host of options for guests, from cocktails through to dining and live music. After descending into the Batcave through a specially designed emotion-triggering ‘mist’, guests emerge in the relaxed and elegant Pennyworth’s, named after Bruce Wayne’s butler, Alfred.” In this podcast I talk all about the menu, the service, the unique environment and why this restaurant needs to be seen to be believed. This is not your every day dining experience and it is one you will remember forever.

EP 65 - THE SUICIDE SQUAD - Spoiler-Free Review
James Gunn’s long awaited The Suicide Squad is soon to be released (UK July 30th/USA August 6th) and although we have waited so long for it, none of us are ready for it! I got to see the movie recently and as soon as it ended all I wanted to do was watch it again! From the start to the finish (wait for the credits to end!) I was taken on a wild adventure that was funny, gory, explosive and with just the right amount of charm. This movie really gives you everything! After this movie blew my mind I was able to speak with James Gunn about this standalone movie. I wanted to get inside the head that made mine explode! As many of you know, King Shark got my attention and love from the moment I saw him so we had a fun chat about Sylvester Stallone and Harley Quinn. You can find that here. (https://thegeekofsteel.com/2021/07/16/jamesgunn/) I recorded this review the day after I watched this explosive tale and the scenes were fresh in my head, all of them…This film is not for kids but if you like comedy, action, thrills and talking sharks that steal your heart, you will love this movie. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thanks for listening and if you liked this episode please leave me a review.

Joining me on #ThePodcastOfSteel this time is Will Highfield. Heroes sometimes have aliases and so does Will! You may have heard of “The Jersey Gorilla” before and if you have not you are in for an inspirational treat. A few years ago I interviewed Will after I became interested in his origin story. I found out about the Jersey Gorilla after Henry Cavill posted a photo on his Instagram and I knew I had to know more about this primate! I reached out and had a great chat about why the Durrell Challenge and the Jersey Zoo is so important. The Durrell Challenge is about to begin again soon so I thought it would be a great time to speak with Will and learn some more about his life. You may remember recently that my mind was blown when Henry Cavill replied to a comment on his Instagram when he was promoting the challenge. Since then I have signed up to take part in this event and began raising money. Here is a link to my page and I would like to take this moment to thank every single hero who has donated so far. I will be putting on the cape soon! JustGiving.com/fundraising/TheGeekOfSteel Speaking with Will about his charity work, the zoo and the challenge was inspiring. Will has already done so much, raised so much and ran so much! Hearing his passion for the animals he cares about so much was wonderful and I can’t wait to see what Will does in the future. He is unstoppable! Here is where you can follow the “Jersey Gorilla” online: https://linktr.ee/Jerseygorilla Please subscribe to Will’s YouTube page. Some very exciting videos will be coming soon and you will not want to miss them! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGd8G6mZn1NTZbMRiM802BQ Thanks for listening and if you liked this episode please leave me a review.

EP 59 | An Interview With David Weiner | Director Of IN SEARCH OF TOMORROW | #ThePodcastOfSteel
Recently I found out about “In Search Of Tomorrow” and I was instantly invested! A four hour + documentary dedicated to sharing the magic that is 1980’s Sci-Fi movies. I had a wonderful chat with David about the project, his love for all things 80’s, the wonderful Sarah Douglas (Ursa!) and how you can get your name in the titles of this movie! I am a child of the 80’s and movies have always been my chosen form of escapism. So many classic movies came out in that time and this documentary will provide such a detailed look into that magical world. We all like to find out rare trivia about our many fandoms and with over 75 interviews this documentary is going to be a blast! Here is a link to the IN SEARCH OF TOMORROW website where you can find out more about this epic project and how you can get your name in the credits! http://80sscifidoc.com/ Social Media Pages: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/80sscifidoc/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/80sscifidoc/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/80sscifidoc/ David’s Twitter: https://twitter.com/TikiAmbassador ______________________________________________________________________________________________ Thanks for watching and please like, comment and subscribe.
