ABOUT X-READS PODCAST:
Chandler Poling & Chris Riley have been friends for well over a decade and share a fondness for the X-Men, but also have things to say about them. Together they read through past issues of Uncanny X-Men, The New Mutants, X-Men, and more, recapping the storyline so listeners can follow along, while interjecting comments and opinions on the outfits, the questionable dialog, the often-odd advertising moments, often accompanied by celebrity guests. That is what X-Reads is all about. A strong read. The library is open.
Past special guests include Fabian Nicieza, Ann Nocenti, Casper van Dien, Kari Wahlgren, Karen David, Bryan Konietzko, and Lenore Zann. X-Reads Podcast was launched in July of 2019. New Episodes publish every first and third Wednesday of the month. Find us on social media @xreadspodcast.
