Climb ev’ry mountain with Defenders #101

It’s podcast time again, as Rob Kelly invites me to his lakeside holiday home to talk Defenders. The Fire and Water Network legend’s Mountain Comics show has a simple idea – he looks back at a book he bought while on vacation in the Poconos with his family as a kid.
