One of the pleasures of this podcast is learning new things. It’s surprising how much you can learn from another person, especially if you keep an open mind.

With that in mind, this conversation with Kathryn Layno gave me a glimpse of a life I couldn’t even imagine. Not only did I have an honest to goodness talk about relationships and how complicated they can be, but I also learned a ton of new terms. To name a few, polyamory, demi-sexual, the male gaze, etc.

Kathryn is a freelance artist, cat-mother, food-lover and child of the sea. Whether it’s through illustration color or music, she has always been driven by the idea of pushing a story forward without words. Her work has appeared in Space (IDW), Skyward (Action Lab), One Week in the Library (Image), He-Man, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight (DC Comics).

This conversation was a joy as we talked about our experiences in gaming, how relationships are different and difficult, her start at freelancing, Patreon, Twitch, and a ton more.

Enjoy the podcast!
