Webcomic Beacon #254: 5th Anniversary Special!

It’s the 5th Anniversary of The Webcomic Beacon podcast! Tanya Higgins rejoins Fes WorksMark Savary, along with Kelly Turnbullfor this very special episode! We talk with Tanya a bit about what she’s been up to since she stepped down from co-hosting the show.

Eric Kimball comes on the show to talk about his work on The Webcomic Beacon Newscast, and ideas they have for the future of the show. Shortly after Jules Rivera ALSO returns to the show to chat with us.

Additionally, I checked to see who was the most frequent guest on The Webcomic Beacon podcast. Excluding other Network shows, a quick search shows; Melissa Kaercher comes in with 9 appearances, Alex Heberling with 8, Jules Rivera with 5, and Yamino, Megan Rose Gendris, and Ben “BAR-1″ Rodriguez, each with 3…. Because some people may be wondering that. Though, out of 250+ episodes, I could be missing some people that have 3 or more appearances.

Additionally, we have an interview of Nicole of Hello, The Future! Nicole wrote lyrics to the outro music of The Webcomic Beacon for our 3rd Anniversary. Also, an interview with Mat Sherer of Badly Drawn Kitties. Mat was actually the very FIRST person interviewed on The Webcomic Beacon, back on Episode THREE!
