Thanks for providing these interviews as a separate podcast
Moisés interviews an interesting and diverse set of comics creators.
I just love Moisés' interview style, and I really like that he's dedicating a feed to full length interviews of artists. I've equally enjoyed interviews from someone I've known about for a long time, as well as guests with work that I'm not familiar with. Keep it up!
