Rhianna Pratchett - Ep#58

March 25, 2022

Rhianna Pratchett is not a journalist despite what Wikipedia says although she certainly used to be. She has however written for many computer games including TombRaider, Overlord, Mirrors Edge and Heavenly sword to name a few. She has also written for DC, Marvel and Dark Horse and so much more. We are so thankful to be able to grab some of her time to chat through her history of creativity, her creative environment and the tricks she uses to persuade her own brain into working and so much more.

Nathan and Chris got inspired by the chat and figured out what the relationship would be between a tiny crow punk and a gentle alien plumber.

Chris Bissette - Ep#55

December 17, 2021

This is our final chat of the year and we end the year with multi-talented creator Chris Bissette.

In their own words, Chris is a TTRPG designer, writer, vocalist and musician.  In 2021 Chris decided that they would go "full-time" into their creative endeavours and things seem to be going okay so far. We spoke to them about the benefits of using a physical device to add tension to RPG's, their music and how there is a huge difference between enjoying writing and enjoying the act of having written something.

All of that was before we created a new made for TikTok show featuring influencer "Kid-nap" whose USP is voluntarily being kidnapped by Pirates in order to make awesome content. Confused? You should be.

November 19, 2021

We had the pleasure and of a chat with Jordan Thomas who is a comic book writer that has recently released The Complete Frank At Home on the Farm book.

We chat to Jordan about the awesome Quarantine comic that he did at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, working with Clark Bint, how a film background helps him visualise a page and lots of other stuff. For our creative section, Chris shares his dislike of Leonardo Di Caprio and draws a weird eyeball testicle cowboy.

Don't forget if to back check out Jordan's work, and back Weird Work - Issue 2 if you can.

Charlot Kristensen - Ep#50

October 1, 2021

It's October and we are aiming to get back to two episodes a month until the end of the year. We celebrate our 50th episode in style as we chat with an incredible comic creator and illustrator Charlot Kristensen.

Charlot's comic What We Don't Talk About is a powerful story about Farai who has been in a relationship for two years and has never met her partner’s parents. Until this weekend the comic takes place. We chat about her story, its origin, her process and other bits.

That's all before we roll some dice and create a brand new children's show we're calling the "Flower Rangers"

Mike Garley - Ep#46

July 16, 2021

We managed to grab some time with Mike Garley, a very busy writer and lecturer. Mike has a huge back catalogue of work and has recently (at time of writing) completed the Kickstarter campaign for the Samurai Slasher Omnibus.

During our chat we dig a bit into the Our Final Halloween series, how Mike feels about giving artists notes on their drawings to help get the idea across and discover exactly what kind of podcast this isn't.

We can't thank Mike enough for his time, patience and joining in with our show.

Shazleen Khan - Ep#41

May 7, 2021

We kick off May with another fantastic artist, illustrator and award winning comic maker Shazleen Khan.

We took a bit of a whirlwind tour through their history in the comic industry and how they get actual pleasure from the physical act of drawing. Shazleen has been working on their web comic BUUZA!! since 2019 and is enjoying using actual time as an element and making the reader commit in the long haul.

For our creative section we come up with a rhythm based game loosely connected to Pa Rapper the Rapper where the stars of the game are guiding a giant cosmic friendly bee to a safer place.

Cooper Shaw - Ep#39

April 2, 2021

We got to chat with another creative across the pond in the form of Cooper Shaw. Cooper is an actor, director and teacher at the well known Second City training school. Chris got to know her a bit while he was taking the Dialects and Character Voices course that was run by Cooper over Zoom

It was lovely to dip into Cooper' history and work and how encouraging she is when learning to use your voice as an instrument. She has an infectious teaching method which is fun and encouraging so if you are interested in learning more about accents and dialects we would recommend you take a look at the course.

Wait until you hear the story we create too.

March 19, 2021

Here we are with our second producer of the occult and spooky material. Here is a chat with T. W. Burgess, a writer and purveyor of horror, especially ghost stories. We had a bit of audio difficulty with this and we hope it does not ruin your listening enjoyment.

We went on a HUGE horror movie tangent and picked up on how important it is to dig into those old folk tales for more material. We dug into the success of the Early Haunts Kickstarter and what is coming up.

That's all before we take a break and then come back and create something supernatural together.

James Bojaciuk - Ep#37

March 5, 2021

We have another double episode for you for March and feature two producers of creepy, occult and that type of content. Starting off with James Bojaciuk the Chief Executive Officer Duobus of 18th Wall Productions.

We talked to James about how the publishing house came about after he received a rather harsh piece of criticism on a piece of his writing. He also speaks about finding the right audience, the controversy around e-books, his love of the Hammer House of Horror series of films, what Kickstarter has bought into the world and how Peter Cushing was really into his tabletop gaming and a massive nerd.
