Tune in wherever you listen to poddys OR listen below.

 

Nano-Pod 9.5!

The New Yorker isn't buying cartoons this week, but we wanted to read some of your suggestions, so we did a Nano-pod… discussing the finer points of the spelling of “PHWOOOOAR!!” and other pressing issues like the writing out of “Steam Ship” instead of saying something’s a bit S.S.

We welcome you our dear listener to contribute an idea that you think might make a good New Yorker cartoon. We will either improve on it or possibly pillory it. Tweet to @scottdools or @jason_chatfield

Leave us a review on iTunes, tweet us your cartoon suggestions and thanks for listening!
