As many of you know, I have been listening to quite a few podcasts lately. In no small part because my podcast, with my friends, The World Exists, has been growing in popularity way, way faster than this comic ever has. Woah! So, it’s making my mind turn to audio more than the visual these days. Still, I draw a lot, so I listen to a lot of podcasts. Just thought I would share a few of them that I have rather enjoyed in recent days.
This Feels Terrible with Erin McGathy – specifically, episode 8, where she tells an extraordinary story of her last sexual experience and acute hemophobia with a summer boyfriend. This girl is honest. If you love the T.M.I. era, you need to check this one out.
The Druce and Hing Podcast – I met these young gentlemen at MaxFunCon in the Pocoonos. They were great, and I like their very honest takes on the struggles and efforts of young creatives. Their L.A. episode is a fun one, in part because of the stunning degree in which they just don’t understand the United States. Man. Sharing a language is not quite enough, it seems.
What Some Would Call Lies – this guy just tells quick vignettes from his one life. From what I have heard thus far, it is just his voice. He does some nice audio production. I have only listened to the two Autumn Wallace episodes, #47 and #48. A word of a caution, they are about murder, kids and the consequences of murder. Powerful stuff.
Oh, right, this is a webcomic. There are few podcasts about comics that I like, but I do tend to like Jim Rugg’s Tell Me Something I Don’t Know. Tho I just noticed that I have a ton that I haven’t listened to. Whoops. My favorite episode so far has been Farel Dalrymple’s.
Speaking of Farel, he made a really awesome poster for the Locust Moon Comics Festival coming up in a week from Sunday. As it happens, I have a table there. It will be my second and last con I will appear at for a good long time. You should come. I will have a new book.

Ninja: Do you think bows & arrows or swords?
Ninja: What about exploding pogs?
Panel 2. Another ninja bursts into the room in the cave.
Ninja: Praise be! Frank Miler's racket has awoken the Elder God.
Panel 3. Ninjas are prostrate before the god who is looking at them somewhat like a kid watches TV.
Panel 4. The god has stood fully erect, arms outstretched and is intoning:
Ninja: I feel really depressed.
NInja2: Well, we are all gonna die.
Ninja: I don't think it's that.
