Podcast includes discussion of the following: Howard Chaykin and his Divided States of Hysteria, reactions to the comic, Ray’s unintended Bleeding Cool celebrity, underappreciated Jack Kirby, Neal Stephenson, schlepping, Blue Apron’s vinegar obsession, Crossed and the evil that is Frank Sinatra.

The GAR! Podcast is the Glenn Walker and Ray Cornwall weekly podcast where they talk unrehearsed about whatever happens to come to mind. It’s an audio-zine for your mind, a nerd exploration of a nerd world, coming to you from the suburbs of New Jersey and the sunny lakes of Florida via Skype.

GAR! Podcast Episode 21- Special Guests Jeremy Whitley and Emily Martin of Princeless

One of these days, I’m going to figure out how we’ve gotten so lucky here at GAR! This week, Glenn and I had the privilege of interviewing the current creative team of the Eisner-nominated and Glyph-winning comic book, Princeless (a big GAR favorite). Jeremy Whitley (the book’s writer) and Emily Martin (the book’s current artist) were kind enough to stop by and talk about their book, teaching comics, publisher Action Lab Comics, and other topics.

As always, you can always get the latest shows and leave comments for us at You can also listen on iTunes and Stitcher. Tweet Ray at @raycornwall, and tweet Glenn at @monsura. Thanks for listening!
