Guest: Jack Mangan
Jack is an author and podcaster friend of mine from back in the day (2005ish) of the original wave of podcasting. He hosted a podcast called Deadpan and wrote a novel: Spherical Tomi which did well as a podcast audiobook on Podiobooks. Lately he's been involved in a new graphic comic novel project inspired by the metal song : Am I Evil, written and performed by Diamond Head and popularized by Metallica. We also touch on the protests/riots/looting going on in the US as a partial response to the death of George Floyd and many other black people that died while briefly in police custody, and also likely due to economic and health crises caused by Covid 19 impact upon the US.
