Ira Madison III Teams Up with 'Marvel's Voices'

Angélique Roché sits down with the 'Keep It!' co-host for a brand-new episode!

Voices

You may know Ira Madison III from Crooked Media’s podcast Keep It! and his articles on Buzzfeed and The Daily Beast—but did you know that he is also a huge comic book fan?

The Wisconsin-native recalls being introduced to comic books through his love of Spider-Man: The Animated Series and X-Men: The Animated Series. From there, like many others, he became a “Wednesday Warrior,” eventually amassing a collection of comic book classics from the '60s, '70s, '80s, and even a complete collection of solo DAZZLER (1981) comics in addition to new releases.

While interesting, this kind of robust collection doesn’t seem surprising from a writer and critic who has a master's degree in Dramatic Writing and has a successful cross-genre career in cultural journalism. In fact, this collection—coupled with his passion for theater and even a good soap opera—solidified my appreciation for Ira’s love of a good story, whatever the medium may be. 

I had a chance to chat with the former drama club nerd about comics (of course), his background in theater, his journey in journalism, and his upcoming post-apocalyptic dramedy Daybreak on this week’s Marvel’s Voices.
