Haiku Salt Water Taffy Podcast

The azure bug is out of a home!  And so’s the giant squid!  And so’s the Rat-man!  For a change of pace, Batman fights the Joker…  Kirk gets his ride pimped…  Constantine gets his groove back…  And Rodrigo ends up sword-fighting his way past the palace guard and riding out of town in style, only to end up huddling in an inn while a reality storm passes overhead.
