With Sepideh Jodeyri & Miss Lasko-Gross …
After last week’s chat with Dave Gibbons (which you can still listen to here), this time I shine the spotlight on two incredible & inspiring women: Sepideh Jodeyri (Persian translator of Blue Is The Warmest Colour) and Miss Lasko-Gross (creator of the graphic novel, Henni, from Z2 Comics).
In the first part of the show, Sepideh and I discuss how she originally discovered Blue Is The Warmest Colour, what made her want to translate it, the troubles that has caused, and her role as an Iranian poet in exile.
And in the second part, Miss and I discuss her early years as a cartoonist, the differences between cultural and religious identity, juggling a work-life-creative balance, and how she feels about the new Fantastic Four movie.
