Friendly Neighborhood Webhead Podcast 01: Spider-Man Part 1
Welcome to the first episode of the Friendly Neighborhood Webhead Podcast! Comics Writer Erik Burnham and cartoonist Ethan Colchamiro are talking Spidey. Yes, there are other podcasts that discuss the Spidey films and comics, but this one is ours... and we make the most of it. In episode one, we discuss the first half hour of Spider-Man 2002, the feature film debut of the wall-crawler, as directed by Sam Raimi. We also talk about the comics that connected us to Spidey, which, come on, you can't find that elsewhere. Note: This is the special edition cut, edited down from the original premiere's raw audio (we found the editing software during episode 5) when updated across podcast platforms, it should be a 29 minute cut. Thanks for supporting the Webheads!
