It’s a podcast crossover as Trash Twins co-host Katie Skelly shows up to talk about Moyoco Anno’s Insufficient Direction. Then Joe and Chris talk about Dominique Goblet’s Pretending Is Lying. It’s a short episode but we actually got decent audio recording equipment for once. Don’t expect that to ever happen again.

Chris and Joe went to second annual CXC festival in Columbus, Ohio, and decided to record a podcast about their trip on the car ride home. That’s a great idea, right? In between they talk about Winsor McCay, Charles Burns, Garry Trudeau and just how cool that Billy Ireland museum is (it’s pretty cool).
