I’m on the Schlock Treatment Podcast!

Sunday, December 8th, 2013


In addition to comics and desserts, you may know (via my Twitter feed) that I love cheesy and campy movies. I listen to various podcasts as I draw, and one of my recent faves is Schlock Treatment! It features four hilarious guys who watch schlocky movies and joke around about them. It’s been a staple for me the past several months, and I was honored to be invited to guest host this week. Since it’s December, we watched Jingle All the Way. I don’t recommend the movie, but I DO recommend you listen to us having fun joking around about the movie, as well as toys, cookies, Japanese bathroom technology, Spider-Man, and various other topics of interest. I encourage you to subscribe to their podcast via itunes, Stitcher Radio, or just listen to it streaming on their site. Click here to listen!

If you’ve ever wondered about the details of my involvement with manga and Japan, and exhibiting at a comics show there, here’s your chance to read all about it. Please check it out!
