Pop Culture Hounding Ulises Farinas and Erick Freitas

By Rich Johnston

by Chris Thompson

After last week’s chat with The Lost Boy‘s Greg Ruth (which you can still listen to here) and my recent film podcast with Before Midnight‘s Graham Reynolds (which you can listen to here) I climb into bed for an intimate discussion with writer/artist Ulises Farinas & his co-writer Erick Freitas (Gamma, Catalyst Comix, Amazing Forest).

It’s one of my rawest and funniest interviews to date, and it provides a nice insight into their process, as well as what happens when I get beaten at my own game …

Along the way we discuss Twilight, Ryan Gosling, where & how they met, the enduring appeal of anthologies, and why Monkeybrain was the right fit for them.

To get in touch, send feedback or submit projects for consideration, please email [email protected]. And if you missed last week’s episode (or any others) you can find them right here or subscribe via iTunes.
