Panel Borders: Commitment to International Aces

Panel Borders: Commitment to International Aces

Continuing a month of shows about war comics, Alex Fitch talks to cartoonist Chris Geary about his series of four comic book short story collections International Aces, which tell the tales of various fighter pilots across the globe from Von Richthofen to Rickenbacker. Fitch and Geary also discuss the latter’s interest in classic war strips, the packaging of the Aces books and his educational graphic novel Commitment, which uses a narrative about a stressed female executive to explain the concept of ‘real options’ analysis. (Recorded in front of an audience at ‘Nine Worlds GeekFest‘, Heathrow 2013, and broadcast 9th October 2014, on Resonance 104.4 FM)

Panel Borders: Adapting Don Quixote

Panel Borders: Adapting Don Quixote

Concluding a month of episodes looking at the connections between comics and literature, Alex Fitch talks to cartoonist Rob Davis about adapting Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote as a pair of graphic novels for SelfMadeHero. Fitch and Davis discuss boiling down the novel’s 1000 pages to the shorter length of the graphic novel, how this relates to his Quixotic experience of editing the exquisite corpse project Nelson and his previous work illustrating Doctor Who. Recorded at the Cervantes Institute, Belgravia, Summer 2013. (Originally broadcast 28th July 2014 on Resonance 104.4 FM)

Free Lab Radio Podcast – Overheated Motor Mixxx

Free Lab Radio host Fari Bradley presents a mix for download, made for cars on long journeys in blazing summer heat.

Broadcasts 11pm Saturday night BST (British Summer Time), repeats Wednesday 2am.

Featured are the Stromae, Beastie Boys, Persian (from Essex), La Chiva Gantiva, DJ Schmolli, Mr Oizo, Noir Désir, Wildbirds and Peacedrums, Alek AK (Iran) and more.

“Ou es ton papa?” – “Where’s your papa?” Stromae sings, is what people always asked him at school. It’s a diligent match to the other track it’s mixed with, which is about doing a thing intensely, to a more than harmful degree, according to the band, who are The Prodigy.

Listen on air across London 104.4FM, online otherwise.
