    Ignorant Bliss 80: Evan Narcisse

    On this episode I talk to Evan Narcisse about all manner of things. I talk to him about how he got into writing and comics, you know the usual. Then we delve into criticism, Hickman’s X-Men, and how does the worlds of critiquing gaming and comics intersect in how the fandom reacts to it. We also talk about different projects he’s working on a transitioning from criticism into creating.

Customer Reviews

Kenny For Prez

This podcast got way better when they had Kenny Keil on. Just kidding, it's super dope anyway and I'm glad I discovered it!

jonnychurch ,

Man, just give it a listen

It's a very insightful, very thoughtful podcast series that speaks aout things on a much deeper level than a lot of the comic podcasts I've listened to recently. It goes beyond the "I love comics and everything is great" mindset that sometimes comes out in other shows and talks about real things. Ronald Wimberly saying "likes won't pay my rent" and Ulises talking about how we don't respect the King until after he dies are probably some things I'd never hear on another comics podcast. But this podcast rarely pulls punches which is refreshing. Above all, the podcast is entertaining as all hell. The episode where they were talking about the Pokemon having rap names made me laugh out loud. Trubbish.

Nothing I say will really do the show justice. Just give it a listen.

Adrian J. Johnson ,

Nothing ignorant. All bliss.

I finally began listening to Julian’s podcast earlier this year with the first of his landmark episodes with Ronald Wimberly. There was so much (as we say) 'real talk’ layered between an obvious passion for popular culture, comics and music that this was on the cusp of being required listening. It was validated thereafter by the spectacular episode with Ulises Farinas that was the tipping point. And I have listened ever since.

'Ignorant-Bliss' is like eavesdropping on friends who love popular culture, comics and rap as much as you do. Perhaps far more so. I admit listening to Julian is how I come to delve into new facets such as grime rap on his recent episode with guest Taylor Pithers. Some may complain that the episodes may be too long. But they are worth your listen. Julian has crafted a show that is entertaining and taste-making; while uniquely speaking truth to power on a variety of subjects within and outside of culture.

For someone as deathly un-cool as myself, I can always at least feel ‘cool' for the duration of an episode of Ignorant Bliss.

Highly Recommended.
