Oh, for comics? I'll just leave now.
Don't know much about comic books, but I regularly listen to Writing Excuses, which features Howard Tayler of Schlock Mercenary, so more often than not he talks about how his writing process for an ongoing webcomic (just hit his 3000th comic the other day, too) is different from that of his partners, fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson and horror writer Dan Wells. The nice thing about this podcast, too, is that they keep each one about 15 minutes long, so they're really good for commutes or break times.
I also like listening to Dragonpage: Cover to Cover, which covers all sorts of novels and interviews with writers, and since Mike Stackpole is one of their regular hosts it's full of insights into the industry and the process of writing. Plus, I usually get at least one good suggestion for a book to read every couple episodes.
Past that, I'll listen to episodes of This American Life, streamed off their website. It's a good way to burn an hour while I work, since their programs are produced for radio. I haven't yet plumbed the depths of their archives, but if you can't find at least one interesting subject in their episodes, I'd think it's because you're not looking. My personal favorites so far are the one about mercenary companies (pardon me, "private military contractors") working in Iraq, and the one about crime scenes (the best bit being about the guy who gets paid to clean them up afterwards).
I've tried a couple comics podcasts, but I haven't found one with the right combination of production quality and regular participation by at least one industry professional to keep me coming back. There's one with Mark Brooks and a couple other working cats that I've listened to on a couple occasions (the name is eluding me, but I'll try to find it), but the problem I had with it is that everyone calls in on their phones, and the audio quality was really rough. Both of the podcasts I listed above are studio-produced, which makes for a better listening experience.
I'm a big fan of Sidebar ( http://www.sidebarnation.com/ ) because they get a lot of great artists, both commercial and underground and they ask them a lot of great questions, not just the fanboy type stuff that some other podcasts do. I've probably listened to the Brian Stelfreeze interview alone 4 or 5 times.
I personally like the Comic Couch guys http://www.penciljack.com/forum/showthread.php?t=86092
Smart, albeit with a sharp tongue.
We did it! Issue 20 Subconcious Pt 1 is up now! Thanks to all who have contributed and supported us! http://reynardcity.com/the-comics/is...concious-pt-1/
I like comic geek speak for fandom reviewing comics, they stay with dc and marvel alot but do some indy spotlight episodes oncea month. they have over 500 episodes and you can look up interviews by creator too, mostly fan type interviews, not technical questions.
Crankcast is a little about comics, Mike Norton DC penciler and Chris Crank's show. http://crankcast.net/
webcomics weekly a gaggle of webcomics creaors including PVP's scott kurtz, there is alot of good shop talk on here on business and creative side, even though its webcomics it can be applied to all comics, I would love if there was a show of this calibur from Independent print comic creators, very informative. If there is one I'd love to hear it.
Thanks for the recommendations. Sidebar has a good interview with Guy Davis, so that was nice to listen to. Ideally, a good podcast has funny and engaging hosts, good audio quality, and actual topics.
I tried the Comic Couch one and it's got potential but one of the guys sounds like he's about to keel over and die any second - just breathes heavily throughout the show and kills it for me.
I like the creative screenwriting magazine podcast. It is usually screen writers, but there have been some forays into comics and television as well. What I like is that it isn't directors or movie stars, just the writers and the occasional editor or producer. And there is a lot of shoptalk and not a lot of brown-nosing. The Dark Knight one is good, as is the No Country for Old Men and the Cloverfield one is surprisingly good, even though I didn't care for the film.
