#57 (Part 1): Decopunk and Dieselpunk With Artist Todd Downing

Todd Downing describes himself as the “complete creative” because, like many in our audience, he wears a lot of creative hats.

In this first of two episodes, we learn about how his Airship Daedalus series developed, including the Greek myth of Icarus and other influences. He also takes us through his art for the series since he created the covers.

Join us for your 1920s fix!

Note: Due to life :), I need to publish the last four episodes of this season weekly rather than two per week (since these are two-part interviews). I know it’s not preferred, but thanks for understanding the constraints!

Todd not only writes and records audio, but he also does his own covers. In this first part of our chat, he takes us through his long-form fiction as well as an anthology set in the same world.
