C. Spike Trotman is one of the most successful comics publishers in today's market.

Her company, Iron Circus Comics, has bestrode Kickstarter like a colossus, generating nearly two million dollars in revenue from twenty-six successful campaigns (and counting) stretching back to the initial launch of Poorcraft in 2009.

From Smut Peddler's lady-centric porn to The Harrowing of Hell's biblical drama, from anthologies to animation, Iron Circus continues to defy expectations of content and exceed expectations of quality.

Today's episode has Greg chatting with the Iron Circus Comics ringleader for a peek behind the curtain at how she balances creativity and productivity, the motivational power of "no", paying creators for their work, and much more!
