Podcast 69 – Revisiting The Past

ConSequential Podcast 69 (Nice) - Revisiting The Past

They say that the past is a foreign country, and as British citizens we are therefore left with an extremely limited window of opportunity to go there without a visa. We’re looking back at books we loved, formative experiences, to see how they stack up now. Also: other comics! Is a hotdog a sandwich? More! Read On…

Podcast 43 – Architecture

ConSequential Podcast 43 - Architecture

Buildings! Pretty great, huh? Personally, we all live in one. One each, this isn’t like Rainbow where we all live in our pyjamas and hang out with a sexually ambiguous hippo. If only. Comics and architecture are natural allies, buildings being where stuff often happens, and comics being images of stuff happening. But there’s more to it than that, and we look at some of the most interesting and informative takes on architecture in comics.

We also go into which each of our favourite metro systems are. Regular listeners will wonder what took us so long, frankly.

We apologise for the noisiness of this episode. Sometimes we just need our air really conditioned. Read On…

Podcast Episode 35: Indie Comics Roundup (Sort Of)

ConSequential Podcast Episode 35 - Indie Comics Roundup

This week is a roundup of indie comics – coincidentally about 90% of what we were reading anyway. Think of us as Newsnight Review for comics, if Bonnie Greer was shitfaced and Tom Paulin had figured out how to hide his obvious depression behind overlong foul-mouthed tirades. What’s that? You already do? Excellent! Let’s crack on. Read On…

Podcast 32 – Agony Ant-Man

ConSequential Podcast 32 - Agony Ant-Man

This week we’re giving something back to the people. As Agony Ant-Man, we take listener questions and pump out good advice and comics-related wisdom at a frankly disturbing volume. As in quantity. If it’s too loud, turn it down. We can’t do everything for you. Read On…

Podcast Episode 27 – Violence (For Real This Time)

ConSequential Podcast Episode 27 - Violence

Comics have always been violent, and while early comics broadly focussed on Hitler getting punched on the jaw or lovesick cats being pelted with bricks, extreme violence has gone through peaks and troughs and sparked the odd moral panic along the way. We look at how violence is portrayed in comics, and where it works and doesn’t. Read On…

Podcast 22 – Englishness, National Character and S.J. Harris

ConSequential Podcast Episode 22 - Englishness With S.J. Harris

Who better to talk about national character in comics with than S.J. Harris, author of the extremely English Eustace, one of our favourite books of last year? And where better to record that than Rules, ludicrous cocktail bar and oldest restaurant in London? No one and nowhere, that’s who/what.

There’s a fair bit of noise in this one – it was recorded in a bar, there was another bar outside, a hen party within, a perpetually-circling police helicopter overhead (Roger recently threatened the king of Spain in an elaborate and unsavoury fashion), and to be brutally honest we were just eating bar snacks the whole time with no regard for decorum or your delicate ears. We can only apologise. Read On…

Podcast Episode 20 – Comics Unmasked

Podcast 20 - Comics Unmasked

This week we’re missing Lucy, but those that remain are joined by the fragrant and delightful Graham Sleight, who brings a certain air of professionalism not usually found in our parade of dick jokes. We’ve all been to see the Comics Unmasked exhibition at the British Library, as well as taking in ELCAF and a spot of light reading. Read On…
