    Hey John. Andrew here of Twisted Ladder. Have listened to both your 2017 podcast on the 48 Hour Film Projects and enjoy them. My brother and I will have to hangout and talk to you after the next festival. Oh, and there’s no way we’d leave comics in a garage, those are empty boxes. The comics are covered and on the shelf inside. There are a lot of really good films that were made in these 48 Hour Film Projects, glad you enjoyed our films.

      Hey Andrew! I am so glad to hear that the comics are safe! I would love to stay in touch and have you on the show at the next festival.
