My conversation with Joel Watson from Episode 6 of Compulsory went about fifteen minutes longer than what’s included; this bonus episode is the remainder of our chat. We talked primarily about stay-at-home working parenting, and I enjoyed the conversation so much that I didn’t want it to languish alone and un-listened-to on my harddrive forever.
Joel is a cartoonist who writes and draws a webcomic called HijiNKS Ensue, which he describes as “a semi-autobiographical comic about a lifelong geek and aspiring artist who turns his back on an unfulfilling but financially stable career in order to pursue art full time and set a better example for his daughter.” I first interviewed him for Make It Mighty Ugly, and it’s been a treat to catch up with him again for the podcast.

- Joel on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram
- Craftcation Conference, at the end of March 2015, where I’ll moderate a panel on this exact topic with some very smart, very interesting women.
