Episode 82 – Restarting Jan’s Atomic Hearts with Simon Roy!
by Chris Thompson
With Simon Roy …
After last week’s Hellboy Day specials with Mike Mignola and friends (which you can still listen to here), this time around I catch up with rising star Simon Roy (Prophet, Murder Book, Jan’s Atomic Heart) ahead of this week’s Emerald City Comicon.
Simon & I discuss how he first broke into comics, working on Prophet with Brandon Graham and The Field with Ed Brisson, as well as the perils and pitfalls of making your early work available again. It’s a great chat with a young writer/artist whose career is on an upward trajectory!

Con was born in Brosna, Co Kerry in 1925. Every year the village of Brosna holds a festival in his honour.
Con’s life story has a Rabelaisian quality to it. Apprenticed as a blacksmith - a trade with no future he points out - he left for the promise of London at an early age. There he worked as a ganger for Murphy for ten years, tunnelling beneath the streets of the city, before becoming a publican.
His 14-year tenancy of The Balloon in Chelsea passed into London folklore. The Balloon was renowned as a place that rarely closed for business - pushed by a policeman on one occasion Curtin defined his opening hours as from January until December.
He played music on the Topic album, Paddy in the Smoke, recorded in London in the 1960s and regarded by many as the finest live recording of traditional music ever made.
Musically Curtin is defined by Sliabh Luchra and by his time in London. Brosna is - for him - the place that music comes from and his life has been defined by that music and the people he met through it. Con Curtin was one of the last of his kind: a natural storyteller.
Con passed away in April 2009.
Producers: Peter Woods and Liam O’Brien.

An Irish radio documentary from RT Radio 1, Ireland - Documentary on One - the home of Irish radio documentaries
Recorded live in front of 800 Nerds at San Diego Comic-con on 7/23, this awesometastic mashup of television space travelers yields some of our best podcast moments. Talk of leeches, Steven Moffat Muppets, Karen’s love of Lt. Commander Data and how The Doctor and Wesley Crusher pilot their respective ships—namely the TARDIS and the Enterprise (1701-D, of course). THIS. EPISODE. RULES.
SIDENOTE: Thanks to BBC America who sponsored the event by allowing the attendees to "enjoy their burritos" which Matt and Karen helped hand out in TARDIS sleeves. Genius!
SIDESIDENOTE: There are some spoilers if you haven’t seen this season of Doctor Who yet!
This episode of Nerdist from NY Comic Con almost didn’t happen! This amazing show at The Best Buy theater with Guillermo Del Toro, Joel Hodgson and Travis Beacham accidentally didn’t get recorded, but then (thanks to the magic of iPhones and social media) we found someone who had recorded it from the audience. So now you get to hear it! Enjoy!
