Green Lantern Then & Now- Let Your Geek Sideshow Podcast

This week, we’re using our willpower to dive into the furthest sectors of the DC Universe and uncover an entire spectrum of emotional struggles and color-coded superheroes. This is Green Lantern, Then & Now.


From across time and space, and throughout the multiverse, listen as multiple generations of geeks come together to discuss the iconic characters, events, and franchises that make up the very fabric of pop culture as we know it.

Let Your Geek Sideshow presents… Then & Now– a pop culture podcast!

This week, we’re using all of our willpower to discuss the evolution of a comic universe that dives right into the core of our very being- utilizing feelings and beliefs to give power to an entire spectrum of color-coded heroes.

Throughout every sector of the DC Universe, these heroes with emotion-based powers are at the very core of some of the biggest sci-fi epics and the most intimate explorations of what it means to be a human with strong, ever-changing passions, instincts, and thoughts. While it ain’t easy being Green, fans find themselves returning over and over again to the stories and champions of one Lantern Corps in particular.

Through the Green Lantern stories, fans can see their own struggles reflected in the ring-wearing heroes who are challenged by problems both relatable and ridiculous- from internal struggles to fighting off giant space monsters with disembodied construct fists. Hey, it’s all a part of the job description!

Let those who worship evil’s might beware our power- this is Green Lantern Then & Now.
