Friendship All-Stars


The legendary Batman writer and creator of Harley Quinn stops by the podcast for an incredible interview! But first, Mark Rennie (The Onion, UCB) talks about his love of Baby-Doll, the potential happy ending of a tragic character, and the desperate need for a tumblr focused on the shoes of the DC Animated Universe. Then, Paul Dini (BTAS, Lost, Arkham Asylum, Arkham City) talks about injecting comedy into Batman, learning to trust the collaborative process and the never before heard origin of creating Baby-Doll. If that’s not enough for you, today marks the beginning of #PodQuestCast, a new multi-part story arc that will continue next episode! Also featuring Kirby Howell-Baptiste (House of Lies, 2 Hot Dogs), Marissa Strickland (Newsreaders, Happy Endings) and Harry Chaskin (Adult Swim). Sponsored by Mary Dahl’s Adult Dollpers!
