    Gweek 058: Wizzywig -- Portrait of a Serial Hacker

    Click here to play this episode. Gweek is a podcast where the editors and friends of Boing Boing talk about comic books, science fiction and fantasy, video games, TV shows, music, movies, tools, gadgets, apps, and other neat stuff.

    My co-hosts for episode 58 are:

    Ed Piskor, the cartoonist for Boing Boing’s weekly Brain Rot comic strip. Has illustrated 2 graphic novels with Harvey Pekar (Macedonia, and The Beats). His first solo graphic novel, Wizzywig was released today, July 5th in comic shops.


    Clive Thompson, a columnist for Wired magazine, and a contributing writer for the New York Times magazine. He's working on a book about “the future of thought in the age of machines.”


    Here are a few of the things we talked about in this episode:
