A birthday tribute.

It’s Julie Newmar’s birthday today, Aug. 16, and there’s no way we were going to let that pass without some celebratory catnip.

I’ve written quite a lot about Miss Newmar over the last few years so for this salute, I’ve jumped from the written to the spoken word, with a special episode of The Batcave Podcast.

Host John S. Drew and I discussed Julie’s contributions to Batman ’66, her best moments and episodes, her unique brand of grace and wit, her career beyond Gotham and her enduring legacy. We had a wonderful time recording it and I think you’ll enjoy listening.

How to hear it? Simple. Click here or here or get it on iTunes or Stitcher. That simple.

If you love Julie as much as we do, it’ll be your best listening today.

But that’s not all!

As I mentioned above, I’ve written quite a bit about Julie, including interviews and commentary.

Enjoy some of these greatest Cat-hits, as it were, many of which feature Julie Newmar in her own words:
