Study Group Comics has a podcast! Join hosts Zack Soto (Secret Voice, Power Button) & Mike Dawson (Rules For Dating My Daughter, Troop 142) as they discuss their own creative processes, comic art, family life, and a ton of other stuff.
Each episode finds a new guest from the world of comics joining Mike & Zack for an in depth conversation, and occasional guest segments from their pals around the world.

We're 61 episodes deep so far - we've posted a new one every Monday for the past 61 weeks and we have no intention of stopping!

Here's just SOME of the big time hot stuff cartoonists (and comics industry professionals) we've had on the show to talk about their lives and work, how they make their ways as artists in this modern world, and more: 
Vanessa Davis, Matt Furie, Derf, Julia Gfrörer, Malachi Ward, Noah Van Sciver, Eleanor Davis, Simon Roy, Jason Latour, Jason Shiga, Julia Wertz, Jeffrey Brown, Joe Sacco, Tillie Walden, Sammy Harkham, Jeff Smith, Katie Skelly, Tom Spurgeon, John Porcellino, Simon Hanselmann & many more!

Of course, it's not just about the guests: we have ended up sharing a lot about our personal lives as the show has progressed. Perhaps that's one of the reasons why we've been told that the show is enjoyable even for people who aren't steeped in knowledge about comics creation or industry lore.

At the start of each episode, we touch base with each other's work progress, family life, and musings on what it means to be a cartoonist in the ever changing media (and social, and political) landscape of 2017.  We also end up commenting on "current events" in comics publishing, as topics strike our fancy. Doing the podcast has really become a valuable creative outlet for both of us, and we enjoy connecting with our listeners and guests. 

HOWEVER, as they say "'castin' ain't cheap." Or they should say that, I guess. It'd be cool if we could recoup some of our costs, and maybe even cover a few non-podcast bills while we're at it! That's where YOU come in! You can help us out with our costs and allow us to spend even more time doing something we love to do: make the best possible podcast we can!

In addition to covering the costs that we already have, (like hosting) your kind patronage will allow us to expand the scope of what we're able to do! We'd love to be able to do things like spend some money on better equipment and improve our sound quality, help pay for travel to record interviews and conduct panels at conventions, bring in more collaborators, improve our website, and pay for transcriptions of interviews. You can help make these things happen!

If you subscribe at the $3 a month level, you will get access to an exclusive Patreon-only weekly podcast feed! That's a whole extra podcast for less than 1$/episode of the main feed!

If the main Process Party podcast is like being in the mix chatting with cartoonists at a convention party, Process Party: Real Talk is the afterparty, when the walls come down and the real talk, advice and gossip flow freely!  Every week we ask our guests to impart a little *extra* bit of wisdom, some nuts & bolts how-to info or philosophy, and of course a heavy dose of every cartoonist’s number one concern: GETTING PAID IN COMICS! These minisodes contain exclusive content not included in the regular podcast!

Our guests come from a variety of backgrounds and places in their careers, and they all have advice for you. From how to mentally balance comics and day-jobs, to nuts and bolts advice about turning comics panels into cold hard cash. Hear exclusive tidbits about the industry, insider stuff that’s 🔥 too hot🔥 to include in the public podcast, and more.

If you really love the pod, you can sign up for the $5/month level and get everything in the lower tiers, but we'll also do one extra-special minisode a month where Mike & Zack will review the stuff they are reading or watching at the moment! What did they think of that one movie about the people or places? What cool old/new comics are they digging on this month? If you like the Teenaged Memedream episode, this tier is for you! This is a mainline fix of our patented "jibba-jabba."

Whatever level you choose to support the show, or even if you just share a link to this patreon, we want you to know that we appreciate your continued interest and enthusiasm for Process Party. It's been even more rewarding than we expected already!
