Eddie FitzgeraldEddie FitzgeraldEddie Fitzgerald is a renaissance man among cartoonists. He is an animation director, story artist, philosopher, historian and all around great guy. On his blog, Uncle Eddie's Theory Corner, he has discussed everything from poetry, ballet, philosophy and music to Mad magazine, the unique shapes of ears, vintage men's magazines, Italian insult gestures and how to make the perfect hamburger. Eddie is most famous for his "Fum-Eddies", comic strips made from photos he creates on the iSight camera of his Macintosh. In his Fum-Eddies, he has travelled around the world, back in time to the old West, through the magic of dreams to Neverland and even via rocket into the deepest reaches of outer space! If you haven't bookmarked his blog yet, do so. You'll be glad you did.

Danny YoungDanny YoungDanny Young: A very sympathetic person once told me, "You have the perfect body for podcasting." And while I don't like to boast, the seat of my chair has almost completely taken on the shape of me. I'm always cruising the internets for savvy cartoon info and I'm ecstatic to be here co-hosting the fruits of my labor with you, and sharing in the wealth of animation knowledge there is to find. I sincerely hope that we all can become better artists because of it.

Michael WoodsideMichael WoodsideMichael Woodside: I'm a relatively new Californian, having recently moved from Central Florida. After volunteering at the ASIFA-Hollywood Archive, I realized pretty quickly that I basically knew a fraction of what was to be known about the world of animation. This podcast is a means for me to uncover these topics and to share them with people like you. So stick around, because we are gonna un-dumb ourselves at an alarming rate!
