In episode 25 of the Man of Screen podcast, its time for a mix of science fiction and voodoo as Mike takes you through the next two episodes of The Adventures of Superman.

Meet Horatio Hinkle, Daily Planet rural correspondent, eccentric inventor, and the guy the Daily Planet staff desperately wishes would stop talking. And then meet his robot hero, which walks around about as well as you would expect a man in a metal suit to do so. Find out what the eccentric nerd does to get past his guard Jimmy Olsen?

And did Mike really compare him to Batman? What is going on here? Plus youre not going to want to miss what really burns Inspector Hendersons butt about “The Runaway Robot.”

And then its off to the jungles of Haiti as we search for Perry Whites sister and Jimmy Olsen, who disappeared while investigating a citadel. Who is this mysterious voodoo witch doctor and what are the jungle drums really telling us? And what does Clark do to keep the Haitian government officials in a state of confusion.

And can you believe that voodoo drum language is not offered at Harvards? So grab your percussion-English dictionary as Mike deciphers the “Drums of Death”.

Next time: Expect some mystery as Mike and Bob Fisher check out a creepy hotel years before Stephen King introduced us to the Overlook Hotel as Perry White and Jimmy Olsen meet “The Evil Three”, and then theyll invite you to help them solve “The Riddle of the Chinese Jade.”
