Our Buddy Michael O'connell drops by Big Z Studios. He tells us about his recent medical issues that nearly took his life. I'm glad that didn't happen because he wouldn't have been able to tell us about all the things he is doing. Being the driving factor for 2 Comedy groups, Comics with Disabilities Act and The Mikes. Take a listen to a Man who was on his death bed a few short months ago.

This week we talk to returning guest and friend of the show, Eben Burgoon! You might know Eben as the author behind the popular webcomic, Eben07, and the new humor/adventure comic, B-Squad: Soldiers of Misfortune, and now he's got one more hat to toss on the rack: Teacher. Eben recently started working with local nonprofit, 916 Ink, a company that specializes in teaching children about writing and publishing. The point is instill at an early age that getting your work out there is possible, and not just a dream to be fulfilled by others. Eben has taken on the new task of teaching kids about the comic book side of publishing by pairing them with professional artists and illustrators, and printing everything out in an actual comic book. Junior was honored to be among the first artists to sign up for the project, and here we discuss the importance teaching kids that anything really is possible, as long as they're willing to dream it and then do it!
