Powers Of Grayskull Series (POGS)
NEW Main Podcast Art:
The GCRN’s Look at MOTU Cartoons
We here at The GeekCast Radio Network are known for our Transformers franchise podcasts, but we do love other franchises as well. So ….By The Power Of Grayskull WE Have The POWER!!!!! Yes that’s right back in 2012 as He-Man and the Masters Of The Universe celebrated the 30th Anniversary Optimus Solo and TFG1Mike brought you a series of podcasts reviewing every MOTU cartoon. OptimusSolo brought this idea to me a few months before we launched the podcast. We then proceeded to go through the motions of creating the schedule, choosing podcast names, and podcast art. Huge thanks to Steve/Megatron for the arts that he has made. So within this post you will be getting all the info on POGS.
WE ARE CURRENTLY ON A SHORT HOLIDAY HIATUS. THIS BREAK WILL BE FROM DECEMBER 9, 2014 TO JANUARY 6, 2015! Tales of Eternia Ep 36 will air 1-6-15, AND FROM EPS 37-45 THE PODCAST WILL AIR WEEKLY!
So things have changed since we started POGS! We will still have a 125 episode long podcast, covering all 4 MOTU Cartoons! however instead of 4 separate feeds it’s all gonna be on one feed. Here’s how it will break down in episode groups!
We had our Episode 00 – The Introduction. Then we started to tell…..
Tales Of Eternia (TOE) Episodes 01-45
In Tales Of Eternia we will be covering all 130 episodes of 1983’s He-Man and the Masters Of The Universe. OptimusSolo and TFG1Mike take a deeper look into these one shot storylines. Lets face it in the 80’s continuity wasn’t as important as it is nowadays. So in 45 podcast episodes we’ll disect everything about this classic 80’s cartoon. We might also get interviews with some of the staff writers. The reason we have two arts for TOE is that the top one will be for the Season 1 coverage and the bottom one will be for the Season 2 coverage. After we tell you Tales Of Eternia we’ll get to…….
Myths Of Etheria (MOE) Episodes 46-82
IN BETWEEN EP 45 AND 46 WE WILL HAVE THE SOTS COMMENTARY EP, BUT THE PODCAST WILL GO ON ANOTHER HIATUS AFTER THAT. THIS HIATUS WILL BE 6 MONTHS LONG, FROM MARCH TO SEPTEMBER 2015. 9-9-15 IS WHEN MYTHS OF ETHERIA WILL BEGIN!

He-Man has a twin sister..?? Ya don’t say!!!! To quote Skeletor “A Female He-man… this is the worst day of my life!” In Myths of Etheria we’ll cover all 93 She-Ra Princess of Power Episodes. This section of the podcast will be 35 episodes long, and again we may even get voice actor and writer interviews.
