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.

Gem Sheldrake - Ep#57

February 25, 2022

Gem Sheldrake, is an artist, comic creator, graphic designer for 2000AD and small press enthusiast. We accidentally hit on Gem's love for Arthur Morgan and traversed the usefulness of gaming to give your brain a break or to inspire you. We also talk about depression, how it's hard only having a small space to differentiate the difference between "work" and "home" and Gem's recent project with old Uni buddy and previous guest Phasechan.

During our creative section, we create a cyberpunk styled world with our main protagonist filtering through the muck with their extra arms in order to find some space change in the form of some luminous crab. Oh... and there is a monkey! We can't thank Gem enough for her time and involvement with the show.

Zoe Burgess Foreman - Ep#56

January 28, 2022

Our first episode of 2022 is with multi-talented creator Zoe Burgess Foreman. Zoe is a researcher, horror enthusiast, author, artist, podcaster and on top of all of that is a teaching assistant for a special needs school.

We talk to them about how they find time to go to the toilet, ADHD, what Cthulhu would be like if he was a hot boi, the struggles that exist around adult manga in acquiring it, publishing it and people judging you for it.

We go off on many a tangent and eventually get round to creating two rival training gyms between aliens and cowboys with some buff cacti drawings from us.

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.

Greetings superfolk! We bring you a super-human episode of the podcast where we talk to Gamemaster and creator of the Masks and Mayhem podcast RC Beiler.

RC spoke to us at what was for him very early in the morning about why he decided to begin making a real play RPG podcast, how he met his victims/players, the value that playing an RPG with your friends has, the amount of time and effort that goes into the show as well as touch on beating yourself up for "not getting enough done". We understand this...100%.

Happy new year listeners. We start this year with an Improv bang and managed to organise a chat with performer extraordinaire Jen Rowe.

Jen is multi-talented and when she is not teaching, performing or writing then she is probably out on a walk, painting or practising hip-hop dancing. We chat about how the lock down was and the new challenges that face UK performers now that the UK is no longer in the EU.

Be sure to check out Jen's awesome drawing on our social media.

Andy Perry - Ep#31

November 20, 2020

As promised we set up and had a great chat with Andy Perry the writer of the Reanimator Incorporated Graphic Novel. Having already spoken to the artist Lyndon White.

We dive into his writing process a fair bit and how he wanted the whole process to be collaborative with Lyndon. He does mention just how valuable the editing process was and how it reformed the story. We talk a little about a writing retreat that he went on with Arvon and as a writer just how much that improved his ways to give and receive feedback.

We loved chatting with Andy and thank him for being patient with our technical difficulties, turns out it all worked out. You can grab a copy of the graphic novel via Backerkit. We are eagerly awaiting the release of Volume 2.

Mat Roff - Ep#24

August 7, 2020

We arrange a chat with creative problem solver Mat Roff. Sadly, we had a little issue with our audio on this episode but Mat's audio is great and after all, it is all about our guest and not us.

Mat helped us in a bit of a deep dive into why fan art can be so important in any artist journey. He told us how everything for him is classed as some sort of collaboration and how that keeps his work fun and interesting for him and his clients. His openness is something we applaud, it's not always about the final product, sometimes the journey is much more important.

We encourage you to check Mat out on Twitch, he regularly streams his work and his process which is lovely to be part of. We will certainly look at going to the Oxford Doodle Club and we hope to collaborate with him on something in the future.
