Geoff is a terrific interviewer, he brings out the best in his (knowledgable) guests. You'll learn about their influences, and each episode is presented in a most entertaining way. You might even learn of some webcomics you may have missed. Above all, Blockhead is a lot of fun to listen to.
Excellent comics podcast!
I love the way Geoff weaves the cartoonist interviews in and out of Peanuts-based lore, appreciation and factoids. His stand alone critiques of the strip are incredibly knowledgable and very entertaining to listen to. This is clearly a true labor of love and it shows. Geoff's a very funny cartoonist in his own right which adds a special flavor to his insights into the greatest comic strip ever produced. Keep 'em coming!
Comic Strip love!
Convrsation about comic strips is sorely acking everywhere, and I have recently wanted to create a podcast about them. Then I happened on Blockhead! - devoted to Peanuts, but by the conversation shows, ranging far and wide into other strips as well. Please keep going!!
