Special roundtable with Simon Russell and Gareth A Hopkins

Special roundtable with Simon Russell and Gareth A Hopkins

In this very wholesome threesome, Simon Russell and Gareth A Hopkins rejoin Uncomics host Allan Haverholm to discuss what really sets uncomics apart from, say, a Google image search; the “sound” of individual fonts; the singer Sting’s sex life, and how a Finnish audience might be more open to uncomics performances.

Please note that this conversation builds on the ones in the last two episodes, and it is recommended that you listen to those first: Gareth A Hopkins and Simon Russell
