Did you read SHOWCASE yet?
Spider-Girl wrote:The topic title is pretty self-explanatory. Would you listen to a podcast about Barbara Gordon? It would target her time as Batgirl as well as Oracle. Am I already annoying enough and you don't want to listen to any more of me? Let me know. It would be a lot of work, but I would not undertake it unless I believe that people would listen/enjoy it.

The "Year One" mini is great, but with a few lines hear and there they pretty much retconned 80 percent of her Pre-Crisis stories.

Year One started her out younger but kept MOST of her education (saying she finished school early but I don't believe they kept graduate school). I don't want to make it sound like I'm picking on YEAR ONE or saying it wasn't a good story, merely stating the difference between the versions. I like YEAR ONE but some of the "eh guyz" foreshadowing was a little too "hit you over the head" like when Black Canary says "WELL LETS NOT MAKE THE TEAMUPS A REGULAR THING" or when Babs says "Sorry Cassandra, I'm not ORACLE!". The art was top notch though and they captured the voice of Barbara real well, little surprise since it's Dixon.
As for the Bruce/Babs thing. There was SMALL hints of it in early stories. They would sometimes pretend to be a couple or she would pretend to be falling for him but it was usually a hoax or something else. In the 60's show she was set up on a date with Bruce at one point but Babs in those early stories pretty much had eyes for Jason Bard.
Anyway don't want to drift the topic too much from Stella's podcast so if you have any more questions in general we can take it to the Dick/Babs thread.
