This is a bonus episode of Digital Strips in which we give an update of the Webcomics Telethon. Also on the podcast were special guests Phil Kahn (I’m Just Saying), Ryan Estrada (ryanestrada.com), and a quick phone call to Brad Guigar (greystoneinn.net) the main guy responsible for the telethon along with everyone at Blank Label Comics. With over 300 comics donated by cartoonists across the globe and already over $20,000.00 raised (as of the time of this writing) this is turning into a milestone event in web comics.
I need to point out that we had a lot of technical issues with Skype while we recorded this. I think we were overextending our connections. As a result the first few minutes of the show has a few audio skips and the phone call with Brad had to be really trimmed down. There’s still a good conversation here and plenty of updates and some great comments from Brad. We’ll try and get a clean interview with Brad after the telethon is over and get some more questions answered.
