In this episode we interview Cardiff Comic Carnival co-founders Josh Hicks and Ioan Morris about their comics and the art community in Wales. We also discuss the 2016 exhibition at Ceredigion Museum, Aberystwyth, ‘Hollow: Mining for Stories’ which challenges the museum experience, and we explore the photographic work of Mark Griffiths who documents his time in lockdown in ‘These Four Walls are Closing In’. Finally, we provide a snippet of our interview with Elaine Clarke, the daughter of Betty Campbell the first Black headteacher in Wales, who is set to be commemorated with a statue outside of the new BBC Wales headquarters in Cardiff.
