In Episode 1 of Boing Boing’s Get Illuminated, we interviewed cultural critic and author Doug Rushkoff. He talked about the renewed interest in Timothy Leary and Aleister Crowley, let us in on the plot of the new comic he’s writing for Vertigo comics, and talked about the book he’s been waiting all his life to write.
In episode 4 of Boing Boing’s Get Illuminated podcast, I spoke with Steven Levy, author of the excellent book, The Perfect Thing: How the iPod Shuffles Commerce, Culture, and Coolness. Steven talks about Steve Jobs’ role in the creation of the iPod, why the Zune is lousy, why Sony can’t make a good MP3 player, and what the rumored iPhone is going to be like.
In this edition of the Get Illuminated podcast, I interviewed cartoonist Adam "Ape Lad" Koford, the mastermind behind the 700 Hoboes Project and all-around creative dynamo. (Here’s a drawing he made of Boing Boing’s own Jackhammer Jill as a hobo).
In this interview we discuss hoboes, the comic strip Gordo, he previous job at a hotel chain call center, the awesomeness of Jack Kirby, Golden Books, how he creates those $20 postcard drawings, and many other topics.
This week on the Boing Boing Boing podcast: the Boingers chat with Wired Editor-in-Chief Chris Anderson.
