In his almost nine years behind the mic, John Siuntres has built Word Balloon into THE go-to podcast for long-form creator interviews. While almost all comic podcasters (us included) are coming into this medium from other fields, John brings nearly 30 years of broadcast journalism experience to his show. Everyone here at the subterranean lair have been big fans of John’s for a while now, and are thrilled and honored to bring you this chat with him.

Find out what made John go from talking sports during the day to comics at night, who he thinks are the people to look out for to get the good interviews, and what creators he has on his “must get” list. We started John talking and held on for the ride; have a listen and find out where he took us!

Robots From Tomorrow is a weekly comics podcast recorded deep beneath the Earth’s surface. You can subscribe to it via iTunes or through the RSS feed at You can also follow Mike and Greg on Twitter. Music is John Hughes by Anamanaguchi. Enjoy your funny books.
