[479] WAW+P Radio 9: Howard Hardiman

Howard Hardiman? Lovely chap. In fact, the first London-based comics person that I ever spoke to, at the Comiket in the ICA a couple of years ago. He was so very friendly, and was selling Badger, which I grew to LOVE, so I knew that the comics scene had something to offer me.

Now I interview him for the WAW+P podcast, and we have a right old laugh. Mostly at me, and my accidental slippages into double entendre. Here's the blurb from the London Fields Radio site.

We Are Words + Pictures host Michael Leader ventures south of the Thames to interview Howard Hardiman in his Deptford studio, talking about The Lengths, Howard's comic about male sex workers in London.
