The Hosts

The hosts of the podcast are Ian and Nikki a couple living in sunny Kendal. They originally hosted the podcast House of Geek which they ran for two years and felt that a podcast about the Lakes International Comic Art Festival would be ideal. An article featured in the local newspaper can be found here.

Ian (@GrumpGeek) is a nerd in all the right ways loving 2000AD and Batman as a teenager. He also enjoys war gaming and board games as well as all the usual movies you’d expect from a nerd. Find his blog at Grump Geek.

Nikki (@Nikki_Draws) is a book worm and loves reading. In particular she enjoys murder mysteries. She enjoys creating comics herself which you can see at her website Watercolour By Nicole. She has published 3 comics, Anxiety Me, Leaf and Moon.
