Hello, Charlie! (Are you current Charlie now…back from vacation or is this a recording?) I was sorry to hear that you are closing down “Charlie’s Geekcast”.

I loved those digests. I didn’t much care for Dial ‘H’ For Hero being Superboy’s back-up either. I much preferred the back-ups that proceeded it. (“Superboy’s Secret Diary” being my favorite). Guess I’ll close for now. Thanks for doing the Phantom Zone series. It was nice to get your prospective on it. I’ll be sadly looking for your last episode of Charlie’s Geekcast.
