It's a short episode this week, as our lovable host has a bit of a cold and not much of a voice.  That said, this week Paul spends a bit of time recollecting the music of the Cranberries and its effect on his teenage years in the wake of the news that Dolores O'Riordan has passed away at the age of 46.  Paul also talks briefly about a few new shows coming to streaming services before diving into space with the Agents of SHIELD.  Also, a small preview of what's to come next week on The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast.

Background music: "An Unlikely Hero: A Dark Synth/Cyberpunk Mix" from Confused Bi-Product of a Misinformed Culture (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APe7mtNxZew&t)

Outro Track: "When You're Gone (2017 Acoustic Version)" by the Cranberries, from their 2017 release "Something Else"

This week The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast forgets all about the superhero multiverse, and turns away from the horror genre, to open the door to another cookie in the jar; anime. This week Paul sings the high praises of two of the all time greatest juggernauts in the cyberpunk world of anime, 1988's "Akira" and 1995's "Ghost in the Shell".  It's a love affair, mainly Paul and his anime films.  So grab a java and get comfortable as The Bats, Bows n' Books heads off into the future landscapes of two classic tales from the land of Japan.

Outro Track: "Empty Streets" by Scandroid; from the 2016 self-titled release

Background music that can be heard throughout the episode originates from both the Akira Original Soundtrack and the Ghost in the Shell Original Soundtrack.

It's a new year, but we're not done with 2017 just yet.  On this episode, Paul will run through not one, but two, Top Ten lists of his favorites of 2017.  The first Top Ten will be a countdown of his favorite TV programs of 2017, and then a Top Ten list of his favorite films of 2017 will follow.  There's also a special clip that has been brought to this week's show; a clip of two critics battling over a Star Wars film from the early 80s.  I'm sure you'll find that the argument sounds awfully similar to battles being fought on the Internet this very day.

Outro track: the '89 Batman theme, as done by Artificial Fear.

Background music: "Dystopia" by Goldpile (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQ8moLn3e-k)

Finally, the show has returned, and it's about damn time.  And for the first episode since the month long hiatus, Paul explores the underwater world of Atlantis, and more importantly, its king...Aquaman.  But this isn't your typical exploration of the underwater monarch.  No, this is a time travelling piece, as we look at Aquaman, and how he was portrayed in 1968.  So get your snorkeling gear on and let's dive into this week's episode of The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast.

Background music this week contains selections from the "Spookies" original soundtrack by Ken Higgins and Jim Calabrese, and also from the 2017 album "Orgy of the Vampires" by Terrortron.  Both albums can be purchased at http://www.bandcamp.com.

Outro Track: "Cities in Dust", by Siouxsie and the Banshees.
