Across cultures, people don’t laugh about the same things. Can dramatic events be made fun of? Where is the limit? How to handle black humour? And what can satire do for social change?


We are making some upgrades to the podcast production and publishing processes so we are rebroadcasting some of our most popular episodes from this first part of the year.


It’s been a good 20 years I haven’t sat in front of TV cartoons first thing in the morning. Doing so with the author himself (in his own auditorium!) was like a dream come true. In addition to the great success of his comic book character Dickie, Pieter De Poortere happens to be a very insightful person I could ask about black humour, visual storytelling, the artist’s take on suffering and social issues. As always, I learnt a lot. I am pretty sure this interview will be thought-provoking for you as well. Let me know if you come to any realisation!


Speak soon, Dance, do more, be cosmic. 🕺💫💫
