S02 Episode 6: What Risks Do You Take?

American Bandito episode card

We've talked about how seeing the work in public makes a huge difference. But what about insurance in those places, not only for you but the items you display? What about planning for the future like emergencies or health issues?

So, the question this week is:
"What risks do you take?"

If you create things in your spare time, you've probably thought about trying to do it for a living or maybe you're just trying to get the guts to put it out there for the first time.

So what would it take to follow through and actually do it?
To help understand what it's like, listen to what these local creatives say about what they do.
Here's a list of the places I talk to in each episode this season.


Each week I ask one question and find out where the conversation takes us, to learn more about how these people decided to take their process one step further.

John Porcellino: Creator of the King-Cat minicomics - American Bandito Podcast S05E06

I mentioned in a previous episode of the show I had participated in an annual zine fest in Madison called Print & Resist. One of the people showcasing his work at the event was John Porcellino, creator of the popular mini-comic zine King Kat.

I went up to his table to introduce myself and I blurted out that I had this podcast and I would love to talk with him. We exchanged information and he was nice enough to talk with me a few weeks later on facebook messenger.

UnderBelly: Turning a zine into an app - American Bandito Podcast S05E05

I went to a local coffee shop to meet the people I talk with today, Olivia and Elizabeth from the start-up UnderBelly.

So from time to time, I like to do a nearby location search on Instagram just to see if there is any interesting artwork that's being posted in the Madison area to try and find some new things to check out. I can’t remember exactly but I think that’s how I discovered underbelly.

They have been working with local businesses to give a different view of the city. The hidden gems, the alternative, the niche and the interesting. UnderBelly is excited to show a local perspective with a twist. They do all this by putting out a weekly zine and just created their own mobile app.
