Podcast: Interview with Jim McLauchlin by J.C. Hutchins

heyeverybody_logo

After a long hiatus, J.C. unearths the Hey Everybody! interview podcast for a very worthy cause. In this episode, you'll meet Jim McLauchlin, a former Wizard: The Comics Magazine writer (like J.C.) who's presently spearheading an incredible new project -- a documentary about the influential work created by 1950s comics publisher EC Comics, and its lasting impact.

EC made big waves in the 1950s, thanks to its daring approach to storytelling ... but its trailblazing stories and art garnered the attention of censors, and the company eventually folded. McLauchlin and his collaborators want to interview EC creators -- and big-name creators of present day such as Stan Lee -- and he needs your help to make it happen!

In this episode of Hey, Everybody!, J.C. chats with blogger/new media ninja Chris Brogan about Trust Agents, the book Chris recently co-authored with Julien Smith (another new media badass). It's a terrific conversation, and in addition to sharing some terrific insights from the book, Chris more than proves his geek cred, as he makes nerd-pleasing pop culture references to icons such as...

  • Dungeons & Dragons
  • The Matrix
  • Soylent Green
  • The Lord of the Rings
  • Video gaming
  • And more, including a hat-tip to Limp Bizkit, just for shock and awe

In short, Chris Brogan is one of us, peeps. He speaks YOUR language. Enjoy the interview!

NOTE: As J.C. explains in the episode intro, the interview's audio quality is ... troubled. Hutch did the very best he could to remove as much distortion from his side of the conversation as possible.
