Turtle Soup Episode 1 – “Soaked in Blood”


 At long last: Episode 1!

     Man, what a delay between episodes, huh? I could blame this on a number of things. The international burrito exchange rate crash tanking my Tex-Mex investments. Our over the top, vegas style appearance at Tampa Bay ComicCon 2012 (pictured). The scramble to find the key to infinite feedback sustain. An insane contest between two rich guys to sit in an oval office and look important…. But I won’t. I’ll just say that it’s something that…

     Dammit, it was the burrito crash! I lost everything!


     On this episode we tackle the very first appearance of the TMNT, Eastman and Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vol.1, Issue 1. We do a pretty in depth analysis into the premier issue and the events surrounding it, including the story of Mirage Comics, notes on various printings, annotations from Kevin and Peter, and the artistic approach behind creating the comic that brought us the Green Teens.

     In current event notes, we are having some slight trouble getting the iTunes feed to work, so please bear with us while we get things all fixed up. We’re also recording at this point with a few episodes in the can, so it may take a couple of episodes to get your emails read / get made fun of on the show…

     Well, without any further tomfoolery, you can download the episode here:

Turtle Soup Episode 0 – “Too Much of a Good Thing”

     Well, here we are: the very first episode of Turtle Soup! We decided to do a 0 episode in the hopes that we could explain why the hell two somewhat sane people would decide do start a podcast dedicated to tracking through the entire Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise in chronological order. This includes the comics, films, video games, figures…. everything. Were we able to explain our reasons for undertaking this mammoth task?

          No, really. Did we? I cant remember…

          I think it’s all about the thirst for absolute knowledge. And ninja skills. Something about the long and storied history of the TMNT screams out to be fully chronicled, doesn’t it? I mean, there is just so much out there. And all of it has mutated reptiles fighting everything from street thugs to Triceratons, Baxter Stockman to Shredder, the fear of being rejected by humanity to…. April’s new “doo”… And we get to see it all!

          The beginning of anything is a really exciting, so thanks a ton for listening. Like anything new, we’re gonna put this show through it’s paces and find our rhythm. Hopefully you’ll bear with us and let us know what you think. And no, we’ve never had Turtle Soup. Have you?
