46: Gene Luen Yang – Gutter Talk Podcast

We are nearing the end of our first year of Making Comics Worldwide and we are not slowing down as we round turn four, especially when it comes to the guests we have on the podcast. This episode’s guest, Gene Luen Yang, is an award winning artist and creator of works that have been and continue to be used in classrooms to educate students. This lies right at the feet of what we do at Making Comics Worldwide so having Gene on the show was almost vital. We were glad we made it happen.

Join Adam and Kevin as they head out on location to Gene’s hotel room in downtown San Diego to discuss using comics to educate, how software coding can be both similar and different from making comics, and also what it’s like to have your name spoken by Alex Trebek.

    This was awesome! Had a blast listening. Given my ethnic background, I also related easily to American Born Chinese. Great book. The historical context of Boxers and Saints is also so good. Can’t wait to read Secret Coders.
