Life in numbers: March '23

Another month has flown by and we're already heading in to Spring. Summer will soon be here and before we know it, I'll be doing a round-up of the whole year... But before then, here's March:

Podcasts: 59 episodes, 61 hours

It's been a bit of a mammoth month for podcasts. I've discovered one or two new podcasts which has bumped up the numbers a fair bit. One big discovery I found was a series called Going Rogue, a six-part series delving into the production of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story from it's inception right through to release. It's a bit of a rollercoaster so if you're interested in Star Wars and film production, give it a listen. It'll now be listed as 'Going Solo', as they're in the second series now covering the production of Solo.

I can't have a March podcast section without mentioning the end of one of my all-time favourite podcasts, Make It Then Tell Everybody. Host Dan Berry announced a couple of weeks ago that he's ending the podcast and he's written a post over on Substack explaining why. I'm sad to see it go but all the past episodes are still there to be heard and as they're talking about the process of making comics, they're evergreen. Episodes from 2014 will still have nuggets of gold so go back and listen (you might even find an episode with yours truly in there).

Films: 6 watched, 12.5 hours

Still not much time to watch films but my wife and I did get a couple of film nights in:

  • Titanic
  • Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
  • Turning Red
  • Luther: The Fallen Sun
  • Soul
  • The Banshees of Inisherin

Books: 4 read

As I spend most of my free-time working on comics at the moment, it leaves little room for reading. We're about a quarter through the year now and I've only clocked 11 books so it's becoming a bit of a theme to say I need to up my game. Having said that, there will be periods later in the year where I'm not actively trying to finish making a book so it'll all even out at some point. Here's what I've read this month:

  • Rolled a one
  • Hamflask
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: IDW collection Vol 1
  • Space Captain - 6 issues
  • The Legend of La Mariposa: The Climb and Other Stories
  • The Legend of La Mariposa: Vulcan's Challenge
