Sorry Crowdfinders, we are on a bit of a hiatus. If you'd like to get your comic book fix, please check out my Flip Through Comic Book Reviews on YOUTUBE.

If you still want some podcasty goodness, might I recommend my other podcast. It is all about education! This week we come back from a long break to talk about equity in education.

Such a pleasure to talk to Ryan Burst, moderator of r/comicbookcollabs, one of the first people to welcome me to the indie comic world and an all around great guy with a passion for independent stories and the creators who bring them to life.

 

And remember people, life is BEAUTIFUL!

Such a pleasure to talk to Matt Hawkins about his Kickstarter, Golgotha, his other upcoming work and the future in general.

Check out his KICKSTARTER until Saturday, May 6th, 2017.

At the 1:18:00 mark (One hour, 18 minutes in) I will talk about a TRAGIC EVENT that's impacted me personally, and how I am unhappy with the news coverage. 

If you'd prefer no politics with your comics, I'd advise you to stop listening at that point.
