Excellent podcast

This is an excellent podcast for fabs of 2000ad and associated creators/comics. Eamonn Clarke is a great host who puts people at ease and has a genuine enthusiasm for the subjects.

It’s lovely to hear the individual stories of why someone chooses a book and what it means to them. A great concept and a really enjoyable listen.

Really good one-on-one interviews with 2000ad fans

It's really good just to hear fans talk about 2000ad in the company of an intelligent, measured interviewer like Eamonn (or Emma as Tom Baker calls him). Listening to it does help you find out more about books you'll like and occasionally its very helpful in providing overviews to stories like Brink that I've got a bit lost with.

Poor Sound Quality

Host tends to interview a lot of his guests in the pub. Might be better doing it somewhere else. It is very difficult to concentrate on what the interviewer/interviewee is saying when you can easily hear everything going on in the background.
