Graphic Medicine Podcasts

Our super audio (and general) editor MK has been documenting everything we do over the last year or two, recording talks, lectures, conversations and interviews. She has set up a bank of Graphic Medicine podcasts that are free to download, and you can also subscribe via iTunes to get regular updates.

We also have a variety of Graphic Medicine podcasts hosted by our old friend and supporter Alex Fitch of Panelborders. Listed below are some links to Alex's recordings.

Continuing our month of shows about medical comics, we have two recordings of creators’ very different approaches to tackling the issue of cancer in sequential art. In another presentation from last year’s Graphic Medicine conference, Suley Fattah talks about his anthologies Drawing the line and Drawing the line again, which collect a selection of new comics about the subject of cancer to raise money for related charities. Also, Alex Fitch talks to cartoonist Ross Mackintosh about his moving autobiographical book Seeds which depicts his father’s battle with the disease.
