James Sime on Comic Geek Speak Podcast
Talking Comics, Retailing & Industry's Future

I'm pretty sure everybody knows how much I dig the various comic book podcasts out there. I threw a huge party with iFanboy back in February, moderated a 2007 comics podcasting panel with I Read Comics, chatted up the Kryptographik 'cast with fellow Eisner judges, did the stunt-hair-and-suit bit for Tekzilla, and now...

Comic Geek Speak.

CGS is one of my favorite comic-centric podcasts of all. With a great mix of industry news, opinion, interviews, and just enough of that hard-core comic nerdiness I love. They bring it all to the table as far as I concerned with plenty of fun, comics smarts, and good old entertainment. It is also religiously listened to by many of my favorite Isotope patrons and while I'm always painfully and perpetually behind on listening to all my favorite podcast shows, the CGS is definitely always near the top of my "must listen" lists.

I'm sure you can all imagine that it was quite an honor to be asked to be featured on the show this week! Now admittedly, I did my interview at about the final hour of an insanely busy weekend and my brain was a bit mush, so I was definitely concerned that my answers were scatterbrained and rambling. But thanks to the wonder that is Comic Geek Speak, the synapses got firing well enough and I'm downright giddy to see that the reaction to the episode was really, really good!

So let me invite you all to point your browsers over towards the Comic Geek Speak website or to head on over to the iTunes store to download the episode. I have a few million things to say about comics retailing, books I adore, customer service solutions, and the future of the industry... perhaps you'll like what you hear, too!
