Behind the Podcast Appearance, the Podcast!

In July, 2019, I was asked to join Behind the Podcast host Adamo Barbieri, along with other guest Mike Rapin of the I Read Comic Books podcast, to talk about why I podcast, why I love comic books so much, and what keeps me podcasting. GetVokl.com has given me permission to rebroadcast that fun conversation to you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did being a part of it!
