Top 10 X-Band: The Phantom Podcast Episodes

Best episodes ranked by Goodpods Users most listened

Mikael Lyck takes over the reigns and leads the interview with special guest Robert Aman about his new book "When the Phantom Became Swedish". It is a rather provocative title and we are sure it will get some reactions from phans around the world.

Please note, we do discuss several stories in this podcast which are listed here and may be worth a read before listening/watching this podcast.
Sweden was leading the way in the 1960's and 1970's regarding many issues in Africa and teh world at the time and it naturally flowed into their comics. Some of the 'left leaning' elements included colonialism, major white families controlling natural resources, race, apartheid, environmental issues, gender equality etc and our Phantom helped solved these issues in Team Fantomen created stories.

One of the interesting things we learnt in this podcast was that phans would write in and hold Lee Falk accountable with unacceptable elements by saying he was not processive enough and how the Team Fantomen creators would 'fix' these problems. We will include an example of this in a future article on our website.

Through Robert Aman we also learn that Lee Falk was very positive and acceptable of what the Swedish creators were adding to his character.

Along with the list of Team Fantomen stories there is some overlap with our initial X-Band: The Phantom Podcast #101 which you may also want to listen to as well. Other podcasts worth reading along with this is our interview with Ulf Granberg in episodes #97A and #97B and Magnus Knuttson in episode #119.

To follow Robert Aman you can visit his social media page here and you can buy his books here and here.

Do not forget, the first person to sign up as a patreon will receive a signed copy of the book. Another signed copy will be given to a patreon for the next seasonal prize (summer / winter) which will be drawn early December 2022.

Jermayn Parker and David Barry join forces to discuss with Scott Einiger who is the founder of Kleckt. You may remember Kleckt as the company who announced their intentions of turning Sy Barry into NFT on the Phantom's birthday in 2022.

This podcast we try and dig into the future of the Phantom and getting the character digitised.
As you listen or watch be prepared to have your mind blown, stretched and challenged. As you will find out what Scott talks about is much more than just a NFT. We talk about providence of collections and how it can add value to your collection or a specific piece. Other topics are a digital museum, the movie, the history and saving it for multiple future generations.

At the 40 minute mark we do watch Scott's trailer for Kleckt which is best viewed on video. If you listen to this on audio only, you will only hear the sound track.

We want your feedback on this podcast and idea of Kleckt. You can email us at chroniclechamber@gmail.com or chat with us via our social media profiles with your feedback at Facebook, Twitter and or Instagram.

  • What do you think of NFT's? Will you buy one?
