X-Band: Phantom Podcast #285A - June 2024 Newspaper Stories & News Review

Just like Frew, we have A and B episodes with our podcasts and because so much has happened in the Phantom world within the last 4-6 weeks, we have split our June review podcast into two. Join Stephen East, Jermayn Parker and Dan Fraser as they sit down and discuss the latest Phantom news from June 2024 from around the world.

As the newspaper stories are time sensitive we also discuss the latest from the Daily and Sunday newspaper stories in this podcast. Which includes the ending of "The Chain", the start of "The Avarice has Landed" from the Dailies strips and the continuous Sunday story "The Commander Will See You Now".
