Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill are probably not getting their Cinema Purgatorio references from 21st Century souces like podcasts, but one of the contributors here (me, Joe Linton) has been listening to podcasts to get background on various Purgatorio stories. There’s plenty of text in books and on websites, but if you want to listen to learn more about Thelma Todd, Fatty Arbuckle, Willis O’Brien and others, check out these podcast episodes:

Cinema Purgatorio #1 – Fatty Arbuckle: Hollywood Scandals of Yesteryear #3
Cinema Purgatorio #4 – Willis O’Brien: The Optical #8
Cinema Purgatorio #6 – cameo feature Marie Prevost: Hollywood Scandals of Yesteryear #31
Cinema Purgatorio #7 – Actual OK Corral history: Wartime: A History Series S05E08, New Books in Historical FictionMy Darling Clementine (1946): The Recommendation Game #8, Totally Awesome Films. Gunfight at the OK Corral (1957): Classic Movie Reviews #86.
Cinema Purgatorio #9 – Thelma Todd: Mysterious Circumstances #26, You Must Remember This #94, Hollywoodland: Unsolved #3, Hollywood Scandals of Yesteryear #13
Cinema Purgatorio #11 – Black Dahlia: Movie Geeks United – Tinseltown Tragedies #3, True Crime Garage #44-46

Some of these pods can be opinionated, sensationalized, sloppy, but still interesting to hear someone’s take on the story.

You can also find podcasts with interviews with various Purgatorio creators from Alan Moore to Max Brooks to Kieron Gillen. Readers – are there podcasts or other worthwhile sources (books, magazines, websites, etc.) that you recommend for background on Purgatorio stories?
