We are back with our normal format and Russell Nohelty is on to talk about Kickstarter horrors and tips, Wannabe Press’ books, con life, and, of course, his new anthology on Kickstarter! Also, we have our Grand Guest, Albert from Who What Where’s Why, back on!
QoW: Have you backed anything on Kickstarter and what was your favorite?
Monsters and Other Scary Shit is a glorious, 224 page hardcover ode to monsters. It’s a love letter to monsters, from 30 creatives teams who adore everything about monsters. There are funny monsters, scary monsters, fantastical monsters, ghoulish monsters, science fiction monsters, religious monsters, and more.
If you love monsters of all types, shapes, sizes, and origins this is the monster anthology for you. It’s the monster anthology to end all monster anthologies. This is the best monster anthology that has ever existed, printed in the most beautiful way possible.

The Kickstarter for this book went live February 14th, and you can fund it at this link right here!
Russell Nohelty is a writer, publisher, and speaker. He runs Wannabe Press (www.wannabepress.com), a small press that publishes weird books for weird people, and hosts The Business of Art podcast (www.thebusinessofart.us), which helps creatives build better businesses.
Russell is the author of Gumshoes: The Case of Madison’s Father, Spaceship Broken, Needs Repairs and My Father Didn’t Kill Himself, along with the creator of the Ichabod Jones: Monster Hunter, Gherkin Boy, and Katrina Hates the Dead graphic novels. He makes books that are as entertaining and weird as they are thought provoking and interesting.
Wannabe Press’ Statement:
We write for the rebels. Rebels that are obsessed with pop culture and question everything, especially authority. Punks, emo kids, goths, nerds, geeks, outlaws, bandits, and rebels, these are our tribe. People that grew up outside the system until that system realized it was “cool” to be like them, as if we did it because it was cool. Our tribe doesn’t move to the back of the bus. They burned their bras and have never seen a protest they didn’t like. They stand up for what’s right even when it’s unpopular. They don’t care what anybody else thinks.
We demand to be entertained as much as we want to think deeply about real issues that matter. We want our stories to have a message, but we want that message hidden under a thick layer of action and fun.
We find humor in the dark places of the world. The darker the better. The more humor the better. We want to shine light in the dark corners and show there’s humor there too, in the places we’re not supposed to go.

“Who What Where’s Why” is where you can find a variety of topics where the hosts share their opinions and experiences, a dedicated blog with spoiler-free movie reviews, plus spoiler discussions of films and TV shows.
Created by Albert Patrick as somewhat of a spin-off podcast network of The Grand Geek Gathering, he intended it to be a multi-media life journal that he is opening up to everybody. He hopes that it will at least spark interesting and thought provoking conversations from the content he has provided.
All of your burning questions about Albert’s podcasts can be found on his site!
Spoilers, Pleeze is the show about the biggest movies of the week spoiled for you, The Stuff and Junk Show is all about stuff and, of course, junk, and I Saw That Movie are Albert’s reviews for all the movies he sees!
