ANOTHER NEW PODCAST!

Very happy to say we say down with the fine folks at the Awesome Comics Podcast recently and had a very silly and fun chat all about making comics, how to think when you draw and write, how to run the UK's biggest comics kickstarter of all time, and much more besides :)

A WARNING! The awesome comics podcast is not NORMALLY an all-ages show (a few rude words here and there) BUT, we made sure that our segment was clean, so if you just want to listen to our bit, it begins at 0:38:02 and runs until 01:53:30, you can listen to it RIGHT HERE!
