Exquisite Entertainment

Equal parts humor and web-based buiness advice with a dash of seasoned life experience, Dave and Brad (Dad and Brave) encourage listeners to create the best online business they can! Though it is focused on online comics, the lessons are applicable to almost any online business.

Full disclosure: Brad and Dave were talking about the joys and wonder of parenting and they did make me cry. It's unusual, especially online, to hear about having a child spoken of as a HUGE change AND a wonderful one. Thank you both for being so awesome!

An endless fount of dad jokes (and useful info)

On top of being delightful, this pod is packed with great info for comics creators—both seasoned and aspiring. I look forward to it every week.

Sublime Sequentialists

Comic Lab is everything a podcast could hope to be: informative, entertaining, engaging, professional, absurd, and regular. Brad Guigar and the notable Dave Kellett are a font of comic knowledge and anyone who wants to seriously get their toes into the world of making comics should pay them heed. They’re also delightfully entertaining, real voices for radio, so even if you don’t give a fig about comics you’re in for an auditory treat. Give them a listen and follow their advice, they know what they’re about.
