We kick off into the new styled podcast with the first of Ian and Nicole’s episodes. They will be entitled The Interviews and will focus and continue our tradition of talking to the best names in comics. Mike and Pete will be back with their episodes of Yakapedia in the New Year.
We start with political cartoonist Martin Rowson. Martins cartoons have appeared in a wide variety of newspapers and magazines including The Guardian, The Independent on Sunday and The Daily Express. He has also had success with poetry books, comics such as the Communist Manifesto, and was appointed the Cartoonist Laurette for London in 2001.
Martin comes on the show to talk about his career, how he got into political cartooning and what exactly was in the cocktail, the Martin Rowson. There’s no introduction to the episode sadly as the podcast household has been struck with that virus. We want to wish all our listeners a Happy Christmas and here’s to 2022.
We have managed to hit 100 episodes on the Lakes International Comic Art Festival Podcast. To celebrate we invite Awesome Comics Podcast host Tony Esmond on to interview Nikki, Ian, Pete and Mike about the podcast and comics. He delves deep into our time as podcast hosts and asks some deep and not so deep questions. It was a blast to record and we hope you enjoy it.
We also talk about the move the Lakes Comic Art Festival is taking next year, moving from Kendal to Bowness on Windermere which is sounding very positive. Big thanks for the past 100 episodes goes to Pete and Mike for their help in running the show, the Lakes Festival team, Julie Tate and John Freeman for whom without their help the podcast wouldn’t be possible.
If you enjoy the show and want to help support us please give us a review on any podcast device.
