On this episode of the PVDcast, I chat with Eric Murphy, an Ohio native that now calls Los Angeles home. Eric is the man behind the documentary, Traficant: the Congressman of Crimetown. The documentary chronicles the life and career of controversial Ohio Congressman and Youngstown folk hero, Jim Traficant. Eric and I discuss how the project got started, the trial and tribulations of completing the film, Ed O’Neill’s participation in the project and a whole lot more! Check out this episode and learn about one of the most colorful characters in Ohio’s history!
On this mini-episode of the PVDcast, I talk about two concerts that I attended this past week. The first concert was Phantogram on Tuesday; followed by Bear Hands on Wednesday. Find out what I thought about these bands’ performances, as well as some pet peeves I have about concert-goers. I end the episode with some wrestling news, covering Lucha Underground, Paige & Roderick Strong’s NXT debut.
On this episode of the PVDcast, I sit down with Mat Calvert. He is the man behind Calvert Comics, who has created a series of deep and philosophical comics focusing on the moral constructs of our society. When the Heart Betrays the Blood, Light & Blindness and Rachel’s Interrogation are three books that tackle issues and topics that could be defined as thought-provoking, controversial or even unsettling. Mat wants to push the boundaries of comics not with just his topics, but with his artwork too. Listen in to hear about Mat’s unique style for his books and find out why he chose to use this type of art. Tune in to what is probably the most profound edition of the PVDcast ever!
Comic book creator, Adam Fields, joins me on this episode of the PVDcast. Adam took a very, interesting, “scenic” route to get into the comic book industry. From his participation in demolition derbies to his graphic design career to creating awesome commission pieces to launching his project, Prowl, Adam details all the twists and turns in his journey. NOTE: Despite my best efforts to fix them, there are some technical issues towards the end of this episode. Do NOT let those small hiccups deter you from giving this episode a listen!
