The Flash Podcast, the first fan podcast dedicated to CW’s The Flash, is following suit with the freshman series by announcing the launch of its first sister podcast, Supergirl Radio.
Supergirl Radio is a fan podcast devoted to the upcoming Supergirl TV show on CBS, created by Arrow’s and The Flash’s Greg Berlanti and The New Normal’s Ali Adler, and starring Glee’s Melissa Benoist as the titular superheroine. It will be helmed by the female duo of Teresa Jusino and Rebecca Johnson, both of whom have made names for themselves analyzing pop culture, will now be joining forces to celebrate the arrival of the soon to be hit series!
This fan podcast will begin with a “Season Zero” – as The Flash Podcast did – from February through September 2015, where listeners will get to join the journey and discover more about Kara Zor-El a.k.a. Supergirl, the last daughter of Krypton. Once Supergirl debuts on CBS, Supergirl Radio will become your one-stop shop for all things related to the series. Andy Behbakht, host of The Flash Podcast, will work behind the scenes as a producer. “Season Zero” will provide an in-depth exploration of Supergirl’s history in the DC Comics Universe, dissecting both past interpretations of the character and the current New 52 version throughout the season, with episodes dedicated to iconic storylines and big events that have involved The Girl of Steel. There will also be focus on Supergirl in other media in which she’s appeared, from movies to television and much more! The Flash Podcast’s season zero was a big hit among its listeners, often being cited for its variety of guest hosts (one of which was yours truly).
CBS gave the Warner Bros. TV project a series commitment on September 19, 2014 and released the series’ synopsis:
“Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.”
Sounds…well, super. The Flash series and its fan podcast have both been hits, so both of these spin-offs should just as entertaining.
