(UN)POPULAR CULTURE

Hosted by Superman super-fan Zach Moore, Always Hold on to Smallville is a recap podcast for the 2001-2011 The CW series Smallville, going through all ten seasons episode by episode.

It was 2016 when I last appeared on AHOTS, discussing an episode in Season 2, and Zach and I have been working hard since to try and get me back on the show. The stars aligned for Solitude, the eighth episode of Season 5, and it turned out to be quite serendipitous.

Solitude is a pretty huge episode for Smallville, tying the show as it does into the Richard Donner-created Superman movie world (visually at least) with numerous major mythological elements – the Fortress of Solitude, General Zod, the destruction of Krypton, Brainiac etc… all mixed together. Plus! There are aspects that are very much inspired by tropes from The X-Files, and Zach and I have always said that AHOTS is a cousin series to The X-Cast

It’s always a real pleasure to podcast with Zach and it was great fun to dip back into the world of Smallville to appear on the show again…

You can listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, your podcast player of choice, or via Podbean below.
