Episode 104 – Coming Home & Talking Indeh with Greg Ruth!

by Chris Thompson

With Greg Ruth …
 
After last week’s epic discussion with Emma Rios, Alison Sampson & David Lafuente at D.I.C.E. (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with creator Greg Ruth (Conan, The Lost Boy, Indeh) to finish the discussion we began in Episode 101 and finally talk more about him.
 
If you’ve heard Greg & I before, then you know this is going to be another epic conversation – and sure enough, true to form, it is. Listen in as we catch up on what Greg’s been up to and how his process has developed, along with some interesting side-steps and tangents along the way.

Episode 101 – Introducing Pop Culture Hound with Greg Ruth!

by Chris Thompson

With Greg Ruth …
 
How do you follow up the amazingly frank Episode 100 with Scott Snyder (which you can still listen to here)? I really don’t know … So instead, I’ve decided to do something completely different with Episode 101, and get my good friend Greg Ruth (Conan, The Lost Boy, Indeh) to interview me!
 
Taking the approach that 101 usually indicates an introductory unit, Greg and I chat about what comic/s meant the most to me growing up, how an Aussie like myself ended up at a comic shop in London, where the Pop Culture Hound name came from, and why old books just smell so damn good! It’s either going to lose me a lot of listeners or, somehow, help you all feel more connected … I’m hoping for the latter.

Episode 60 – Discovering The Lost Boy with Greg Ruth!

by Chris Thompson

With Greg Ruth …
 
Following on from last week’s episode with Adam P. Knave (which you can listen to here) and my recent, curiously related, film podcast (which you can listen to here) I give in to fate to chat with writer/artist Greg Ruth (Freaks of the Heartland, Conan: Born on the Battlefield, The Lost Boy).
 
Greg is someone I’ve been meaning to speak with for a long while now and it seems the universe was somehow in agreement as the stars (and our schedules) finally aligned for it to happen this week.
 
We discuss how he got started, the way fine art differs from comic art, why we need more comics for kids, and what he’s doing to address that. Plus we delve into his long-awaited next project with Ethan Hawke (Indeh) which will finally see release in the not-too-distant future.
