[UPDATE 02/11/15] My new podcast Potter & Daughter is live now! You can download the first episode here or subscribe via RSS or iTunes (as of 2/12/15 the iTunes link is still waiting on Apple approval).
Here’s the description from the podcast website:
Potter And Daughter is a Harry Potter themed podcast where Joel Watson (cartoonist, geek dad and creator of the online comic HijiNKS ENSUE) talked to his seven year old daughter, Lily, as she reads through the Harry Potter book series.
In each episode Joel and Lily cover about 1/4 to 1/3 of a book, discussing what happened, why it happened and what lessons Lily is learning from the books as she reads them. It’s part Cliff’s Notes and part cute and instrospective conversation between a father and daughter who love the same books for the same (and sometimes totally different) reasons.
RATING: Always safe for work and safe to share with your kids.
My daughter and I made it together, I’m really proud of it and I hope you enjoy it.
I’ve added a “cookie fort” tag to this comic post, almost as a personal dare to create a comic that requires the use of that tag again. I suppose it could be something aspirational as in, “We’re all just looking for our own cookie fort, you know?” Or it could be a grim portent of the inevitability of oblivion as in, “Hey man, none of this matters. One day we’ll all just be bones in a cookie fort.” Maybe it’s an expression of concern. “I just can’t seem to get through to him. It’s like he’s built a cookie fort around himself since the accident.”
COMMENTERS: Come up with more sayings, aphorisms, etc. that involve cookie fort.
