#117 – What On Earth Is “Chap-Hop”?: Steampunk, Comic Books & Terrible Past Jobs With Professor Elemental & Steve J Ray


Professor Elemental & Steve J Ray join Mike this week for a brilliantly funny discussion on chap-hop, steampunk and more!


In more detail, the Prof explains what chap-hop is, his musical roots and what it’s like performing across the world, the trio then discuss the Prof’s comic book & general indie comics, before delving into weird and brilliant communities, what steampunk is, horror movies, the worst jobs they’ve had, nerd culture & comic conventions and more (and the Star Wars documentary Mike can’t remember near the end is called Elstee 1976)!
