PodcastsAs part of this year's "Basewood Blitz" I have been doing a lot of podcasts. Unfortunately, I've been so busy traveling to a string of conventions, that I have not done the best job of keeping my blog up-to-date with information about these podcasts. Let this post rectify that situation!

This weekend I recorded a really fun podcast with Derek Royal and Andy Wolverton over at the Comics Alternative Podcast. I was especially excited about this one, because they were able to work in some Songs From the Basewood tunes before, after and during the show. We talked about how Basewood relates to SFTBW and about Phase 7 and teaching comics and all kinds of other stuff.

Back in May, at TCAF, I met a British cartoonist named Dan Berry. We did a "Mega Trade" (all his books for all my books) and then he invited me to be on his excellent podcast Make It Then Tell Everybody. On a weekend morning in July I woke up early, poured myself a cup of tea and had a lovely chat with Dan over Skype. He's a great conversationalist, and in the blink of an eye, our 45 minutes were up! I could have talked with him all day.

Before that, in April I spoke with Robin McConnell of Inkstuds fame. This was right before the giant Inkstuds West Coast tour, so it was super nice of Robin to sneak me into his long list of interviewees. I've spent many an hour listening to Inkstuds while I draw over the years, so it was a real honor to be on the show!

A few weeks before that I recorded my first podcast of the year, during Emerald City Comic-Con, the Sneaky Dragon podcast. This one is run by Ian Boothby and David Dedrick, who are kind of like a Canadian Charlito and Mr. Phil (of the epic Indie Spinner Rack podcast). Ian brings his improv comedy skills to the mic, and David is just about the nicest guy you'd ever meet. He's also a talented cartoonist in his own right - for every episode he draws a custom title card based on the interview (mine was the coolest).

Anyway, all of these people have been extremely generous with their time and I appreciate them helping me spread the word about Basewood! If you're looking for something to listen to while you work, or you would like to know more about my process give these a listen!
