  1. Paul Gravett interview

    At London Super Comicon last month, Koom got to sit down with Paul Gravett, a comics journalist and exhibition curator. Gravett is currently preparing the touring Asian comics show Mangasia, which will debut in Rome next month. This is a guy who’s read a lot of comics; do they all become a blur after a while? Koom asks him about avoiding burnout, the amount of progress comics have (or haven’t) made toward being accepted by the “art world”, and much more.

  5. The 80’s Want Their Anime Back | Wave Motion Cannon

    Truly an anachronism from what many believe to be the ‘Golden Age’ of anime. I have always been impressed by the depth and scope of Khoda’s knowledge of anime from another time. She started 80’s Anime nearly three years ago, and since then it has become a pillar in preserving the classic aesthetic, sounds, and culture of what brought anime to America. With someone so praiseworthy, I was lucky to have her on the show!

  6. BBC World Service - Hardtalk, Henry Rollins - Musician and Writer

    Henry Rollins got into punk rock as a curious kid in 1970s Washington DC. He first found success as lead singer with the band Black Flag and went on to form his own band. He had a cult following on the alternative music scene, but he soon left the confines of rock and roll. Henry Rollins has embraced writing, broadcasting, acting and journalism. These days he’s an activist and storyteller taking on issues from militarism to race relations to homophobia. He’s built up something of a cult following around the world - but how receptive is America to his enduring punk sensibility?

  8. WAT Met Willim Welsyn Podcast — Willim Welsyn, 4 Feb Episode 41. - Koos Kombuis · Willim Welsyn – iono·fm

    Ek kry uiteindelik die geleentheid om vir ’n uur lank met my childhood hero en gunsteling Afrikaanse songwriter te gesels en die gesprek stel nie teleur nie. Dus is dit geen verrassing dat die gesprek die hele arc van Koos se loopbaan as skrywer en musikant probeer dek het: Van kinderdae tot Voëlvry-vibes, sy bedanking uit die Afrikanerdom, wat alles gebeur het op daai trein-trip KKNK toe, van verslawing na suburbia, van Weskoppies tot by Somerset-Wes, sy verhouding met sy collaborators en sy nuutse jeugroman Monster Goggas wat einde Februarie uitkom.

  9. ʼn Gesprek Met Danie Marais – Ep. 56 WAT Podcast – William Welfare

    Danie Marais is ’n bekroonde digter, rubriekskrywer, vryskutjoernalis, radio-omroeper en net ’n plain likeable cool dude met oorgenoeg useful information en quotes oor pop culture. Hy kom riff in die garage oor sy kinderdae, hoe die platebiblioteek en sy neefs op De Doorns se musiekvoorkere sy identiteit beïnvloed het en hoe sy stint en eerste huwelik in Duitsland die pas aangegee het om sy debuutbundel In Die Buitenste Ruimte die lig te laat sien.

  10. Track Changes: Add Me to Your Professional Network

    This week Paul and Rich want to connect with you, as they tackle the messy hellscape that is LinkedIn. What makes the site so bad—and what, if anything, could make it better? And in the second half of the show, they break down design culture, and how it shapes the things that get built.
