I remember the first time I laid eyes on the website of today’s guest (Matt Inman), The Oatmeal. Five hours later I couldn’t stop laughing.
Fast forward. Matt has built a comic empire online that is now becoming even more mainstream with the release of his new coffeetable-style book, 5 Very Good Reasons To Punch A Dolphin In The Mouth (And Other Useful Guides) (Amazon link).
I invited Matt on the show to talk openly about his comic empire. How did it get started? How does he run it? Does he have help? How has it become so popular? How is he making money (and how many ways has he tried to make money)?
Enjoy this super candid interview with Matt, and keep laughing.
