CHRIS SHARY, the artist extraordinaire for Descendents/ALL is on this week’s episode of Mostly Harmless Podcast!

A few weeks back, I got a chance to interview Chris Shary for New Noise Magazine. The interview went so well, and I enjoyed talking with him so much that I decided to reach out to Chris about doing a shirt for MOSTLY HARMLESS and our table at Denver Comic Con! He accepted, and I wanted to do a Mostly Harmless episode to tie in with his amazing shirt!

We talk to Chris from his Stockton, California home about him finding his way into illustrating, punk rock and teaching. We talk to him about meeting the Descendents/ALL and balacing his career as a teacher and as a prolific and busy artist! All of this and more in this week’s audio adventure!

THE ART OF AN INTERVIEW Damian interviews JAY BENTELY of BAD RELIGION, and give us advice on conducting a better interview!

I’ve been doing interviews with bands since I was seventeen years old. Over the years people have asked my advice in how they can do their own interviews.

Most recently I interviewed Tom May from The Menzingers. Their tour manager, Scotty Bell, is a good friend of mine and wrote me telling me that Tom thought the interview was great and that my questions were “really gonzo-esque and off the wall.” Scott was thinking of interviewing bands and asked me for tips.

As with the other, people who has asked, I wrote him a couple of thousand words about my process. I’m never sure if those e-mails ever make sense, but I wanted to take a little time today and write a little bit about my process and show you how it plays out.
