Episode 178 - thematical thematology

Aug 4, 2014

For this DD webcomics podcast, Quackcast 178, we talk about THEMES. And no, we're not talking about those fine musical tracks that Gunwallace has been making for our comics. Theme is what's happening below the surface plot of a story. Plot is the events that happen, and theme is what it all means. We asked people What they thought about themes in their work, how they approach them, do you put themes in there on purpose, or does it happen by accident? Is a theme even necessary? We also asked people to talk about some of the themes in their work. We had some very interesting contributions. Themes in stories in comics, movies, TV shows and books are not things we tend to think about that much unless we're trying to be clever but they're an all pervasive and important part of any story nevertheless!

I've been seeing this "Simply Sarah" theme tune mentioned....finally got around to hearing it now playing on the Quackiecast- it _does_ kinda fit nicely. Got well out of the habit of listening to QCs - this is the first in ages.

Glad you liked it. It was a fun piece to do.

I love the Simply Sarah theme tune!!! XD I'm really flattered you took the time to compose that too. :)

Where are the missing 18 and half minutes of tape of the previous Quackcast? (my attempt to make a reference to the Watergate anniversary).

And I thought Themes was a river in England! There's always something to be learned from these Quackcasts!

Take that back Ozone! Todd Sweets has never been featured in the quackcast!
