If you’ve ever looked into comic creation podcasts before, this is probably the one you are most familiar with.

This is a fantastic podcast for anyone who is at any stage in the comic crating process, be that a pro or a total beginner.
Welcome to ComicLab: The podcast about making comics and making a living from comics! If you loved Webcomics Weekly, you're going to love this show: It's half shoptalk, half how-to, and half friendship (yep, it comes in three halves…somehow). It's tips and tricks and all the joys of cartooning and producing sequential art stories as a pro. So, pull up your drawing chair, put on some headphones, and join us while you draw! and if you like what you hear, kick in a dollar to help make more and better shows.

Creator at Large – The Business of Creating Comic
Every week on the Creator At Large podcast host Jeremy Melloul speaks with creators and other professionals working in the comic book industry. He digs into how they’ve built their careers, as well as their thoughts and feelings on the industry’s trends and changes. Through these conversations, listeners will not only learn about the industry itself, but also get advice and information on how to build an independent living working in comics.
Wizard and the Bruiser
If you don’t wish to limit your knowledge to only comics, then this podcast reaches out to several other mediums as well. Holden McNeely and Jake Young are your guides on a psychotropic journey into the secret origins of nerd culture. Fill your ears with education each week as the hosts tackle subjects from the worlds of comic books, video games, anime and film. Untold stories, bizarre facts and crazed deconstructions will fly at you at dangerous speeds, do not listen if you are pregnant or nursing. Make no mistake, this IS the sweatiest podcast in human history.
I wanted to end with this one as it, arguably, the most relevant to all those reading this blog. Following the exploits of a comic creator named Curtis, we are taken deep into the world of the indie creator, finding out through our narrator all the tricks of the trade therein.
Curtis' attempt to learn more about story process, writing comics, self-publishing, working with publishers, freelance writing; and to hopefully teach and help you understand along the way. From tips, how to's, and news updates from his own comics at toinfinitystuidos.com
