In this issue we chill out and discuss the heroes and villains who've been given the cold shoulder in DC comics, movies, and tv shows. We learn how Captain Cold got his gun, and we learn more than you could imagine about the true king of cold, Mr. Freeze! But first we find out where Colin was, and we take a polar bear plunge into this week in news... All this and more on the Doctor DC Podcast!
