WWE WRESTLEMANIA 30 + Tavis Maiden = SMACK-POD! – That Thing You Like #56

wrestlemania-30-daniel-bryan

Every conversation That Thing You Like has had with webcomic luminary TAVIS MAIDEN has invariably turned to one thing: The squared circle. The sweet science. The totally respectable, legitimate, sports entertainment art-form that is PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING. With the landmark event that was WWE WRESTLEMANIA 30 on the horizon, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to just “lean-in”, as they say.

It’s a very special all wrestling pod! We talk about WWE memories, feeling legitimate excitement about Daniel Bryan, being sad about CM Punk, Cesaro’s man strength, Brock Lesnar ending the streak, and the AWESOME HEEL that is AJ Lee.

EVERYONE READ TENKO KING! And Tavis’ other great comics, available at Thunderskull Press! He truly is the best, nicest man in webcomics, and we had a blast podcasting with him as always. Hope you enjoyed it, and please, tell a friend about the pod! Plus, maybe throw us a review on iTunes? If you want to? But only if you want to.

But seriously. Ty is awesome. Everyone should follow him on Twitter, and read his comics! And also, listen to how smart and hilarious he is on this pod.

TTYL Podcast #17 – Erika Moen!

That Thing You Like Erika Moen - Oh Joy Sex Toy

That Thing You Like continues to line up all-star guests! On this week’s episode, we were thrilled to be joined by the fantastically talented Erika Moen! Erika is legitimately one of the best cartoonists working today, web or otherwise. She is also possibly the nicest, most charming person alive. ENJOY THE INTERVIEW, BROS.

Click Here to Subscribe! – We may not be as NSFW as Erika, but we’ll try! Butts. BUTTS. BUTTS YOU GUYS.

Or, listen to the episode here: http://bit.ly/16Zc4nj

Erika is a true comics badass and recently celebrated her 15th year of putting comics on the internet! If you haven’t read her work, you’re missing out. Missing out to the point where I question your life choices. Do yourself a favour – go spend a week or two reading DAR!, Bucko and the newly launched Oh Joy, Sex Toy! It’s okay. The podcast will be here when you get back.

If you HAVE read Erika’s work (or are just returning to this blog after your two week all-Erika-all-the-time comic fest), this interview will be a treat. We talk about Erika’s early love of comics, getting started at age 15, and the way both positive and negative comments influenced her decision to move on from DAR. Of course, we also talk a TON about Strip Search, and Erika doesn’t hold back on her experiences in the house, including how she would have handled the final challenge. She also talks about a NAKED HOT TUB BRAWL.

I wonder which sentence in that paragraph grabbed your attention?

Erika also discusses her future plans to release a sex-ed book that she considers her magnum opus, plus her favourite Adventure Time character. Sex AND Adventure Time! It’s just like that creepy corner of the internet you keep having nightmares about.

TTYL Podcast #16 – Abby Howard!

Abby Howard Podcast Interview

That Thing You Like has never been afraid to throw down for #TeamTangent. And, wouldn’t you know it, this week we’re happy to be joined by the cat-loving, kickstarter-crushing, webcomics prodigy Abby Howard!

Give her a round of applause, ladies and gentlemen!

[Applause.]

If you’re looking for more Abby Howard off-the-cuff hilarity, this is 100% the podcast for you! In our longest episode to date, That Thing You Like delivers the definitive Abby Howard interview. Strap yourselves in and listen as we delve into Abby’s influences, her love of horror, and get some EXCLUSIVE BEHIND THE SCENES STRIP SEARCH JUICE. Plus, some clutch, up to date info on her upcoming comic, “The Last Halloween.”

The interview wound up being incredibly warm and enjoyable, which we should have expected from the moment Chris and Abby both raced to make the same Clone High reference. Abby shares some great stories about realizing she could support herself on art, how her ‘sadness period’ on Junior Scientist Power Hour was born out of waiting to wrap up Strip Search, and what it was like to smash through her Kickstarter goal in 10 minutes.

Throughout it all, Abby is consistently honest and charming, and That Thing You Like wishes her the MOST success imaginable!
