Episode 216.5: Blake Can’t Talk

After a week of throatal-type symptoms, Blake’s voice is shot, friends, and unable to talk he won’t be able to record a 2 in 1 Showcase podcast. BUT — that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to listen to this week! Earlier in the week, he joined the good folks of Flying Island Press for an episode of the Galley Table podcast, in which they discuss writing comic books and the challenge of bringing superheroes out of comics into novels, movies, and television. It’s a great conversation with some really creative guys, so be sure to give it a listen. Blake and (hopefully) the gang will be back next week. In the meantime, you can contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at!
