I’m completely addicted to podcasts during my day job. It keeps me sane and really helps the day go by faster. One of my favorite podcasts is Janet Varney’s The JV Club, which is part of the Nerdist Podcast Network. Janet, perhaps best known as the voice of Korra on the voice of Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra, interviews various women in the entertainment industry about how their teenage years influence who they are today. It’s a really interesting podcast that I can really relate to, even as a male listener, due to how insane my high school and college experiences were.
That being said, I heard a story on an old episode with Kerry Kenney today that really inspired me to the point that I wanted to share with my readers, especially those who want to break into comics.
