Media Montage 44: Advanced Ancient Civilizations Plus Eps 42 & 43

Did an advanced civilization once exist prior to Sumeria and Egypt? Did such a culture inhabit coastal areas all around the world and inspire the legends of Atlantis, Lemuria and Mu? Bruce and Larry take a look at theories of a 12,000 year old advanced human culture that may or may not have had nuclear weapons and airships. We’re talking Ancient Civilizations on the Media Montage Podcast.

...And Episode 43: Tommy Wetphall and TV Crossovers

Does every TV show exist in the mind of St. Elsewhere’s Tommy Westphall? We explore that hypothesis as well as the pros and cons of shared continuity across multiple shows, comics and movies. We discuss the quasi-organic emergence of shared universes as well as highly planned ones. Does a tightly integrated, detailed continuity or a loose, tangential continuity make for better storytelling?
