Podcast episode 429ish: Jeff Cooper & Grahaeme Cowie

Wednesday marks the big release of the pilot of Impotents so I say it's high time we release the podcast episode featuring the fathers of the animated series, Jeff Cooper and Grahaeme Cowie. The pair have known each other since high school where they would meet by the smoking doors and swap their doodles. When they decided to form an animation studio, they came to a fork in the road: Would they name it Smoking Doors Animation or Swap Your Doodles Studio? The former won out. And the rest is history. In this episode, they talk about their baby, Impotents, which features four super-cool buddies: Jesus, Buddha, Ganesh, and Artemis. Get all the latest on the project on their Facebook page.

Listen to the whole thing below. Or go download the episode at iTunes or Stitcher or wherever you can find it.

July 3: Jeff Cooper & Grahaeme Cowie

After a couple of highlight episodes, we are back tonight with actual real live human guests. Jeff Cooper and Grahaeme Cowie from Smoking Doors, a small animation studio here in Vancouver, are making their What's So Funny? debut. The pair has been developing a series over the past three years and they're ready to release their pilot to the world this month. The show is called Impotents and is not, contrary to the title, about erectile dysfunction. It tells the story of four super buddies: Jesus, Buddha, Ganesh and Artemis. Not just four people with famous names – the originals themselves! All living in the modern world. Take a gander at the trailer:

We'll talk all about the project and the issues it tackles. And we'll find out all about the fellas themselves.

Tune in tonight at 11 pm on co-op radio 100.5 FM. If you can't find your radio, you can always livestream us at That'll do the trick. Talk at you then.
