Episode 147 – In Conversation with Rachael Stott & Jessica Martin!

by Chris Thompson

With Rachael Stott & Jessica Martin …
 
On this episode, I go to the pub with rising star Rachael Stott (Star Trek, Doctor Who) to discuss how she broke in, the art of portfolio reviews, learning on the job, and the path her career has taken in the short time since.
 
Then, as an extra bonus, the second-half of the episode casts a spotlight on writer/artist Jessica Martin (It Girl, Vivacity) as she provides a walkthrough of her Elsie exhibition currently on display in the Orbital Gallery.

Episode 127 – Live from London Super Comic Con 2015!

by Chris Thompson

Live from London Super Comic Con …
 
Following on from last week’s tribute to my good friend Herb Trimpe, this time I’m back with a series of interviews recorded *live* in the inaugural Podcast Alley at the recent London Super Comic Con.
 
First up, Alex Paknadel chats about his new series Arcadia from Boom! Studios, then I ‘find’ Sam Read to discuss his work with Comix Tribe, Martin Hayes & Chris Askham come by to talk Abominable Glory, and 2000AD‘s Mike Molcher pops in to hype their podcast & other activities.
 
As if that’s not enough, I’m also joined at the pub by Hunter Gorinson & Andy Liegl from Valiant Entertainment for a post-con drink. We chat about what’s happening in their world, where readers can start exploring the Valiant universe, and how they found their trip to London.

Episode 29 – Symbiosis with Steven Sanders & Melksham Comic Con!

by Chris Thompson

With Steve Sanders & Hayley Spencer …
 
It’s a slightly shorter episode this week as we recover from the wonders of London Super Comic Convention. I take a moment to look back at how the weekend went and to plug some of our upcoming UK shows, including Melksham Comic Con and Thought Bubble.
 
Then I chat with writer/artist/world-builder Steven Sanders about his ambitious and revolutionary Kickstarter campaign for Symbiosis. We discuss the impact Our Love Is Real had on his career, what Symbiosis actually is, as well as some of the legal and business issues involved.
 
If that’s not enough to ‘kickstart’ your week, I also chat with Hayley Spencer, the organiser of Melksham Comic Con. We look at the origins of the show, what it takes to run a not-for-profit organisation, and how Kickstarter can be used to make events happen.
