Each year for Pride, we talk to some of the coolest people in comics and graphic novels about the stories they’re telling, queer and trans identities on and behind the page and screen, and why speculative fiction is so damn queer and trans.
In 2022, we have the following episodes for Pride month:
- Episode 126: Reflecting worlds that reflect me featuring Nadia Shammas (Squire)
- Episode 127: Out of her love for Nubia featuring Stephanie Williams (DC Pride, Nubia: Queen of the Amazons)
- Episode 128: Queer in its bones featuring Hamish Steele (Dead End: Paranormal Park) with Ayoola Solarin (Dead End: Paranormal Park, Croc and Roll)

- Episode 130: You don’t have to ask permission featuring Silver Sprocket’s Avi Ehrlich, Archie Bongiovanni (Grease Bats, Mimosa) and Eddy Atoms (Pinky and Pepper Forever)
