Cool Podcasts part 2
One of my very favorite podcasts, about comic books or any other subject, is Wordballoon. It's an audio cast: each episode featuring a long, satisfying interview with a single comic book creator. Host and interviewer John Siuntres has a great ability to create interesting conversation. He clearly knows his comics, has done his research on the people he's interviewing, and has an insightful, intelligent reader's perspective on the comic book field. He also manages to interview most of the top people (especially writers) in the field. I'd go as far as to say he's one of my favorite interviewers out there, period; in many ways even better than, say, Fresh Air's Terry Gross. Siuntres gets to the core of what comic book creators are up to and really gives us all a window into the profession and the art form. If you have any interest in mainstream American comics check this show out, either through iTunes, or the link above.
