Podcast Super Summit starts tonight!
Tonight's episode of JAVILAND will be hosting a Podcast Super Summit! I've invited the hosts of three other comics podcasts to come on JAVILAND and join in a roundtable discussion. These are podcasts that I've been listening to for the last several months, and I find the topics and conversations held there to be extremely enlightening and beneficial to my own approach to making comics. Each of the hosts of the shows are actually comics creators themselves, so they can approach the subjects with a keen understanding.
My guests tonight are:
JERZY DROZD & MARK RUDLOPH, hosts of ART & STORY: This podcast has almost 70 episodes under it's belt, and I've heard about 96% of them! Mark and Jerzy will discuss an aspect of making comics, such as Character Building or working outside one's comfort zone, and bounce the idea back and forth for the podcast. This show really gets down to the nuts and bolts of storytelling.
KRISHNA SADASIVAM, host of SEQUENTIAL ARTISTS'S PUB: Krishna's show offers a true roundtable discussion. He's a web cartoonist, and his the callers on his show are a mix of print and web cartoonists. There will be about two topics per episode, and Krishna keeps the show moving by asking everyone to share in the topic. This is a virtual version of hanging out with other cartoonists after a convention at the hotel bar talking shop!
KEVIN CROSS, host of MINI-COMICS DUMPTRUCK: Kevin started a Mini-Comics club where participating cartoonists agree to produce a mini-comic, and send finished copies to the other cartoonists in the group. I myself have joined the club, and in fact am in the middle of my mini-comic! Kevin's podcast is an ongoing discussion between the Dumptruckers on their process for creating their comics, as well as discussing specific topics such as getting your mini distributed to stores.
If you would like to participate in tonight's podcast, you can join the chatroom and interact by typing in questions or comments. JAVILAND is hosted on TalkShoe.com, and they have a great interface you can use. Just go to my page at TalkShoe, and either create a profile and register, or just click the Join As Guest button once the show starts.
Podcast will start at 6pm (PT)/ 9pm (ET). Otherwise you can download the episode later this evening via either my page at iTunes or with the TalkShoe Player located at the top right.
Thanks for listening!
