Keith and Krishna start by reminiscing about working on the Shattered anthology and a project for the Smithsonian (1:30). Then, Krishna discusses growing up in Knoxville, TN (3:00) and how he found a community when he went to the University of Tennessee (8:45). Though there was parental pressure to be academically gifted and work in engineering (12:00), a fateful conversation with cartoonist Dave Sim (15:00) encouraged Krishna to take his art more seriously which eventually led to the birth of his popular webcomic The PC Weenies and other strips (25:00). Also, they discuss why it’s actually important for children to be bored (36:00) and his work in the documentary Forgive Don’t Forget (40:00). Finally, he explains why his mother’s dosa always brings him back to his Tennessee childhood (44:00).
