Why I Love Comics: The Audio Edition
Eric Ratcliffe and friends discuss all things pop culture, from comics, to movies, to video games, to music and more each week.

On this episode of the podcast, I had the pleasure of being joined by Marc Guggenheim (writer of Blade/The Flash/JSA/Wolverine) as well as a writer and one of the producers/show runners on the new CW series "Arrow" which premieres in October. We talk about creating the show, whether it has any similarities or connections to Smallville, writing Blade, working on the Green Lantern movie and some of the comics he's written!

On this episode of the podcast, I am joined by the very awesome Janet K lee who I haven't had the pleasure of talking to since NYCC. We cover a lot of ground from how they adopted their cat, getting the eisner, her husband writing for Ubisoft and trying to get out to E3. We also discuss a little about Kickstarter, her working with Jenna Busch and just so much more.

Then I sat down and talked with Youtuber/Comedian and writer Greg Benson as we talk about his career so far, the difference between his prank videos and the material he writes, what cons are his favorite, the different friends he's made and just so much more!

It's an extremely packed episode of the podcast!

On this episode of the podcast, I invite Edmund Mcmillen back after almost 6 months, and we talk about the development of the Wrath of the Lamb expansion in the Binding of Isaac, the game breaking bugs that appeared, and flash almost not working at all. We also talk about the current state of the industry, including our disappointment with E3  and its lack of launch-ready games accompanying the console announcements, as well as how indie gaming is basically running circles around the mainstream material. We also discuss Edmund's exit from twitter and what it meant for his overall health. Of course, we also cover the focus on the development of Meatboy in Indie Game the Movie, and so much more!

On this episode of the podcast, Eric flashes back to a point where he was still new to the world of interviewing. It was the second convention I ever attended and the first as press. The very first person I managed to get for an interview that year? Bendis and all through the weekend I was talking with people like Jim McCann, Tony Bedard, Tim Seeley, Claudio Sanchez, Joe Kelly and JM Ken Niimura and Tim Seeley.

It might have been my first convention but honestly after relistening to these interviews a few years later, you will want to listen. Hearing about each of these creators creative processes, why Bedard pulled Beak into Exiles, how Claudio works as a writer, why Tim finds it hard to write Loaded Bible, Joe and Ken talk I Kill Giants as well as many other projects Joe was working on, Bendis talks Avengers and some of his choices behind what was going on with Clint Barton, Jim talks about Reunion and just so much more is all here!
