Batgirl to Oracle: The Barbara Gordon Podcast - Episode 11

Having been shamefully sent to Coventry (Wikipedia-linked for our overseas readers!) for the last couple of episodes BtO Special Correspondent Kimberley Rockmore makes a triumphant return, accompanied by co-host Stella, for another hugely enjoyable episode of Batgirl to Oracle: The Barbara Gordon Podcast.

In this episode Kimberley reports at length on the news from the BtO watchtower while elsewhere in the show Stella answers questions as diverse as 'what does she think about the Batgirl from 'The Batman' series?', 'in what areas does Stephanie Brown need growth?', and 'what are her favourite Batgirl moments?'.

Later in the podcast Stella reviews Detective Comics #400 and #401, Batgirl #12 along with Birds of Prey #3 before wrapping up with her customary literary recommendation in which she surprisingly overlooks the latest Tom Clancy thriller in favour of a more traditional selection.

It's good to have you back Kimberley (and Stella of course).

If you're new to Batgirl to Oracle I'd like to point you in the direction of a very special episode - show number 10 - in which Stella talks at great length with current Batgirl writer Bryan Q. Miller.

During their conversation Mr Miller talks with Stella about working with artist Lee Garbett, Batgirl's supporting cast including the villains, Stephanie Brown working with other heroes, and even briefly discusses Cassandra Cain.

The show concludes as Mr Miller very kindly answers listeners questions.
