    First time listening to this podcast. I loved it, great interview. I have been looking for a good comic book podcast for some time now. Thanks to Mr. Ottley’s tumblr page I now have some cool stuff to listen to while drawing.

      Thanks, Joshua, and welcome to the show. I’m glad you enjoyed it.

      And it occurs to me, with 52 other episodes in the archive, you’ve got, if you listen to one a week, a year’s worth of STUFF SAID at your fingertips!
