Naturally to enjoy the content of this satirical and adult coloring book it would help for the reader to be progressively minded. Therefore, how “good” you may feel that the book may happen to be is rooted heavily in subjectivity. However, even though I may not agree with all of the concepts on every single page, I can put on an objective hat. I have no issue stating that for me this book was a creative and witty isometric exercise into a fusion of political satire, humor, and social commentary.
The book’s illustrations were created by Steve Hartley, who in my opinion did a great job maintaining the recognition of the caricatures yet portrayed expressions that match the essence of the scenes and situations depicted.
In this day and age it doesn’t take much to inflame a segment of the public. Jim and Tim have had their fair share of angry blowback from the right and from the land of social media. They sent me various links prior to the interview to show me this aspect of their experience and perhaps to give me fair warning of some of the grief that I could possibly catch as the interview migrates its way through the digital media cyberspace.
We touch on some of this negative feedback during the podcast but we really wanted to stay centered on the humorous aspects of this book as well as the societal messages conveyed in the content.
If you share an illustration with someone and it sparks a conversation, it has done its job.
During our pre-production meeting I suggested to Jim and Tim, that given the provocative title of the book, it may help to give the interview some depth if I threw them a few curve ball questions as opposed to producing what amounted to an audio infomercial. They were very receptive to the idea and they both did a fantastic job making their points in this podcast which give it an intrinsic value of substantive content above what would otherwise be considered as just a digital media marketing tool.
I hope you enjoy the podcast. You can play the podcast from this site below or under Billy Dees on nearly all of the major podcasting platforms including iTunes Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, TuneIn, and iHeartRadio.
