Hi Kate, just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying the Less Than Live podcast. Every episode has been great so far, and you and your guests are always funny, smart and thoroughly charming. I'm also very grateful for the number of amazing, talented lady creators you've had on the show, something other podcasts of this nature seem to overlook, which is just bonkers. I look forward to future episodes, and to future work of yours as well. Much love and take care!

Ahh! That’s awesome, and thank you.

My next set of guests are both gentlemen, but I assure you that I intend to keep it very gender-balanced. You all know how important it is to represent the spectrum outside of dudes.

That being said, the dudes you’ll be hearing from next week are spectacular.

LESS THAN LIVE EPISODE 3 is UP: Bosozuko! - Fraggle Rock, Edward Scisosorhands and an interview with recently announced Batgirl artist Babs Tarr! We talk about her new series, our love of cosplayers, the power of magical girls and making comics accessible.
