About the show

Starting in 2008, Comic Book Pitt is Pittsburgh's longest running comic book podcast. Co-hosts Dan Greenwald and Scott Hedlund formed the show with the intent of bringing a fun, conversational atmosphere to both long-time comic book fans and new readers. With the addition of co-hosts Jared Catherine, Shawn Atkins, Caitlyn Copp-Millward, and Brandon "Link" Copp-Millward, the Comic Book Pitt is able to cover comic-related news across all media types; from movies, television, and insider industry news, to reviews of weekly comic books.
