It was so popular last year that we decided to do it again! Join us this holiday season as we introduce you to twelve of our favourite podcasts in the 12 Days of Podmas.
Ranger Danger began more than seven years ago, with two friends from Australia, Michael Busuttil and Mat Groom, who made it their mission to watch through every episode of Power Rangers from the beginning.
Over the years that the show has gone on the cast has expanded, with long time guests Lauren Dundler and Tim Busuttil becoming hosts alongside the original cast. Together the four hosts have watched through hundreds of episodes, covering the entirety of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Power Rangers Zeo, Power Rangers Turbo, Power Rangers in Space, Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, and Power Rangers Dino Charge, as well as having almost completed Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue.

The hosts watch each episode, then come together to discuss, scene by scene, what they’ve watched. Now, thanks to the at times elaborate nature of the franchise, this can lead to some hilarious results, as the hosts are blown away by the amazing action, confused by the convoluted continuity, baffled by plots that don’t make sense, and sometimes reduced to tears by how much the show hurts their brains. Listening along to these conversations are brilliant, and can change the way you view an episode, turning boring episodes into favourites.
Not only does Ranger Danger cover the show, but it has also delved into the comics over the years, and thanks to its ‘Boom Room’ episodes, gives readers of the Boom! Studios comics the best resource for learning more about the books. The Ranger Danger hosts have been joined by Ryan Parrott, Kyle Higgins, Anthony Burch, Tini Howard, and other writers and artists from the comics to talk about these series, the process of making them, and the creators’ love of the franchise. These special episodes have gone into the comics in depths that aren’t found elsewhere, and act as wonderful companion pieces.

Thanks to these connections at Boom! Studios the team at Ranger Danger have helped to shape the franchise, having assisted Kyle Higgins on his work for ‘Shattered Grid’, worked on the special ‘Shattered Grid’ live read-through at Power Morphicon, and have written one of the more popular stories in the 25th Anniversary Special comic in 2018.
With the sheer amount of episodes that they’ve produced (close to 600 and counting!) and the involvement they’ve had in the franchise, Ranger Danger is easily one of the best and most pleasurable podcasts out there.
