Interviewed: OSU’s Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum curator Caitiln McGurk

Gil Roth talks to Ohio State?s Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum’s Caitiln McGurk who curated “The Irresistible Force Meets the Immovable Object: A Richard Thompson Retrospective”

You can listen to the podcast here.

Caitiln McGurk, fresh off of curating her first exhibition at Ohio State?s Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum, The Irresistible Force Meets the Immovable Object: A Richard Thompson Retrospective, joins us to talk about how she got into the rather narrow field of comics librarian, the appeal of Columbus, OH, her dream-exhibition, how the Stations of the Cross got her started on comics, and what it was like to meet Bill Watterson! Give it a listen!

?Because of his whole mystique, people assume Bill Watterson?s a real jerk or so socially awkward that that?s why he doesn?t want to talk to people. But he just wants to have his own life and not be bombarded by fans all the time.?
