The podcast is in the entry below, but 24 hours after recording it I've had some second thoughts about how I wrapped it up. While my overall opinion still stands, I feel that I came down too hard on the series at the end. The thing is that I read through 15-odd volumes of the series because even if the plots didn't thrill me all the time, the characters did. Geoff Johns and the other writers who contributed really did a great job of breathing new life into old characters and creating new, interesting heroes to carry on their legacies. It would've been nice if the stories they were featured in had been equally compelling, but it was enough to get me through -- and record a podcast on the series.
