Many of you may remember that talkaboutcomics.com started its life as the home of an audio talk show about webcomics that I used to do.
When I launched Modern Tales, my time and energy had to be devoted elsewhere, and I converted the site to a forum hosting service.
I’ve always thought that web-only talk shows about comics made a lot of sense, though.
One of the things I wanted to do, way back when, was work with Lea Hernandez on a talk show of her very own — her personality is so dynamic, her opinions so strong, and her position in the industry is so unique, that there’s no way a great show wouldn’t result.
Now it’s real. This will be a weekly thing, every Saturday.

This is our first show, and it’s been years since I had the talk show equipment running, so please have patience with the crappy audio quality. We’ll get better at the technical stuff as time goes on. Meanwhile, the content itself — an interview with Modern Tales cartoonist Shaenon K. Garrity, in which she opens her birthday presents, and confesses her deep and abiding hatred of her L’il Mell collaborator, Vera Brosgol, is priceless. Not to mention the hightone bitchery of me describing my local comic book store. Is it, or is it not, a “guy-hole.” Only the listeners know!
