This week's cast was an experiment and if it works out we'll do more! We came up with the idea for discussing a comic live on air, the hard part was choosing it, for that we settled on our trusty Kawaiidaigakusei to help us. She chose “Up the Pyramid” by BUDLO. And this was her rationale:

“A comic that I had already featured, but deserves a second run in the spotlight. There is a chapter specifically that would work for a Quackcast episode discussion titled, ”My Mother, Her Baby, & Mary Cassatt“ that went live a few weeks after the comic had been featured. It is a story that is told in very beautiful panels, set in real world settings, and it struck a chord with me when I read it over again and gave me a real pause in order to think about life paths. The chapter could resonate with many people on the site.”

that seemed like amazing reasoning to us and so we chatted about that chapter of Budlo's comic, page after page, all having seen it for the first time. So fancy that, a webcomic podcast that finally talks about webcomics!

Do you think this works? If not, why not?

This week Gunwallace has given us the theme to NSFW - Heavy on the bass and lots of groove, this is a very 1970s sound!This tune sticks with a line and rides it through to the end. It’s a really solid groove that knows what it wonts and how to get there.

BUDLO at 6:29PM, Aug. 18, 2023 delete This was such a wonderful surprise for me. It is a rare gift to see your work dissected in real-time by three intelligent and generous practitioners of the story craft. And to Kawaii, who originally highlighted the comic and wrote kindly of it then, thank you for recommending it for the Quackcast. Your comments were straight on and insightful. As much as Maslow's Pyramid is universal UP THE PYRAMID is autobiographical. Tantz, the Cassatt story as well as "The Night the Circus Burned Down" are both love letters to my parents. Thank you for recognizing them and naming them that way. Of course they are. I just never put it so simply in words. The podcast was so heartfelt, thank you so much. John Cote (Budlo)

Loved this cast! Gonna have to check this comic out myself in due time! Wouldn't mind to see you make more casts like this, hearing your observations and analysis on more webcomics as good as this one would be a joy👍
