Welcome to episode 48 The Thrilling Adventures of Superman. The show’s mission is to explore the history and development of the Superman in his formative years by chronicling the Man of Steel’s Golden Age adventures in comics, radio and film.
A missing man and a mysterious house are the catalyst for this adventure as Michael is rejoined by Charlie Niemeyer for a look at the fifth storyline from the Superman radio serial. What follows is ancient natives, a mystical emerald, uncomfortable period dialogue and most certainly… a job for Superman!
And be sure to check out Charlie’s podcast, Superman in the Bronze Age! A huge thanks once more to Mr. Niemeyer for coming on the show.
You’ve seen a little magic already — just a very little! I call it the magic of Krypton! Now, you’re going to see a lot more!
The Superman radio show, obviously, doesn’t allow for scans of images from the story. But, here’s a picture of Frank Welker, who we talked about in one of the episode’s tangents.
