Marty Pasko marathon is great.

I’ve listened to hundreds of hours of this informative podcast. I’m currently enjoying the multi-part Marty Pasko interview. As a lifelong comics reader, I find this stuff fascinating and entertaining. Thank you Mr. Siuntres for all the great pod.

So Many Different Guests and a Great Source for Inspiration!

I think I started listening to Word Balloon in 2015/2016, when I was in college. The hours-long episodes were great company on my weekend drives home then, and they’re great company when I’m drawing or going to classes for grad school now! Listening to John Siuntres’s detailed conversations with so many amazing comics creators about their many approaches to the craft has made me feel like creating comics is doable. It really is amazing how much I have learned about an inherently VISUAL medium by LISTENING to a podcast! Even so, many of these conversations remind me that it can be done, even if all I’m doing myself right now is making some silly web comics.

Word Balloon is very good. Some of the conversations are kind-of boring and I skip them, but Siuntres releases so many episodes nowadays that there’s usually something to listen to!

Top notch comic book conversations

I enjoy the long form conversations and John is a solid interviewer and knows how to carry a conversation, keeping it fluid and casual yet on topic. The chats are informative and fun, like listening to friends catch up.
