Curious about what it would take to start you own podcast or blog about comics? This panel focuses on the ins-and-outs of podcasting, blogging, and its links to other forms of social media (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Reddit) in covering comics and comics culture. The panel participants have all been involved in comics-related media for a number of years -- for example, John Mayo of The Comic Book Page has been podcasting since 2007, and Derek Royal of The Comics Alternative has been publishing within comics studies equally as long -- and bring to the session a wealth of knowledge and experience.

Perhaps most significantly, the panelists strongly encourage audience questions and participation, in that part of the purpose of this session is to inform those new to podcasting and blogging, and they hope to foster a broader and more diverse coverage of all aspects of comics culture.
