Did everyone catch yesterday’s interview? The One with Jim Rugg and Jasen Lex? Most everyone knows these guys for their cartoonist and illustration work, but now they’ve joined the esteemed ranks of podcasters, as well! The first chunk of the talk focuses on Jim and Jasen’s outlook on interviewing and journalism; for example, how editing can affect the portrayal of a subject. Their show is called Tell Me Something I Don’t Know, and it appears twice weekly over at BoingBoing.net. Their first episode to appear on Boing Boing is an interview with co-founder of Fantagraphics, Gary Groth. The guys also have a year’s worth of previous episodes available through iTunes. This was a really great, light-hearted talk with some awesome, thoughtful dudes, and is well-worth the next hour of your life.
