Interesting Interviews and Charming Conversations

2015 Update: I attended my first Skwigly live event which screened films, had a Q&A with Ainslie Henderson and also had beer and snacks available too, great to network with many like minded people and make new friends.

The podcast's have gone from strength to strength with even more brilliant interviews with directors of blockbuster animated feature films now (alongside your favourite indie short creators) and behind the scenes and upcoming production discussions.

Interviewees are always more open and insightful on this podcast than other interviews because the people interviewing know the subjects and ask great questions about the productions and process (rather than just advertising pr)

I've left my original review below for further recommendation.
-----------------------------
Great podcast for animators and those interested in animation. T Some really great interviews with people from the animation industry and the occasional competition too. Discussions don't go over people's heads with technicalities and the hosts are humourous and passionate. The podcast is well structured and divided also, so if a particular subject matter isn't quite your thing then you can simply skip to the next section and not be lost in subject, not that you'll find yourself doing this mind.

Would reccommend mostly to animation students and graduates, but no reason seasoned animators shouldn't tune in too.

Fantastic podcast for animators and enthusiasts

A really great podcast by two well informed and passionate presenters. Featuring lots of in-depth interviews with animators, directors, producers, writers and just about anyone else they can get their grubby fanboy hands on!

It does a really great job of being filled with useful information and facts, but also chatty and informal so you feel like it's a discussion between two friends who happen to be massive animation nerds in a coffee shop

Recommended for anyone with more than a passing interest in animation history, careers, people, technology or gossip
