If you haven’t heard by now, this past week we lost one of the greats: Daniel John Schmidt. Dan was the co-founder of Across the Airwaves and the longtime host of the DC Nation Podcast, Marvelverse Podcast, and ThronesCast here on the ATA Podcast Network. Dan was very much a Man of Steel and as we mourn the loss of this Superman, we wish to bring you to simpler times.
This special edition of the DC Nation Podcast is what we would call a LOST EPISODE, an episode that was recorded long ago but was never actually released online. Before the DC Nation Podcast covered Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Supergirl, and all of the other DCTV shows and films, this podcast was hosted by Dan and longtime ATA host Michael J. Petty where they covered DC Comics animation such as Young Justice, Green Lantern: The Animated Series, Beware the Batman, and the DC Universe Animated Original Movies, as well as DC comic books such as the famed Forever Evil story arc and the Smallville Season 11 comic series written by friend of the podcast Bryan Q. Miller.
While on a hiatus from Beware the Batman and Smallville Season 11, Dan & Michael were covering the Forever Evil comic event as well as random DC Comics animated features. This episode was to be the first of many covering the DC Universe Animated Original Movies starting with Superman Doomsday, based off of the famous Death of Superman comic book. Unfortunately, Dan and Michael did not continue their original plan to conclude reviewing Forever Evil and talk about Justice League: The New Frontier as an executive decision was made by us here behind the scenes that we were going to reboot the DC Nation Podcast to talk about all things live-action DCTV with Dan & Nico leading the charge. However, that’s for another day. Today, we celebrate Dan’s life by releasing this highly anticipated LOST EPISODE of the DC Nation Podcast covering the Superman Doomsday animated film.
