I am delighted to be back on A Happy Go Lucky Podcast with Leia Weathington, Jesse Morgan and Ben Coleman for episode 34! Here’s the episode description:
My main squeeze Erika Moen is in house to talk about six months of her incredible sexual health and toy review comic Oh Joy, Sex Toy! Together we all plumb the murky depths of societies attitude towards sex, our fraught educations as youngsters and the politics of desire.
Bonus content: learn what god awful wardrobe choices we all made as teenagers.
Episode 34: The Sexual Misinformation of the Breakfast Club
Glenn Fleishman had a really in-depth, thorough conversation with me earlier this month on his excellent podcast, The New Disruptors. We talk about my origins in comics, honesty & autobio, sex education, being on a reality TV show and my new comic series. It was a pleasure to talk with him and really go below the surface with him on this episode, Do Toy With My Affections.
I’m very happy to have had the chance to talk with Alex Fitch on the UK podcast, Panel Borders: Educating with autobiography.
From the website:
Continuing a month of shows about lesbian and gay comics, Alex Fitch talks to MK Czerwiec and Erika Moen about their work. MK discusses her alter-ego Comic Nurse and narratives about nursing in her sequential art which include elements of autobiography and how this has led to curating zines and illustration work about her home city of Chicago. Erika talks about her webcomic Dar! which gave her a space to discuss her relationships and sexuality on the net, plus her collaborations with Jeff Parker on Bucko, published by Dark Horse, and Matthew Nolan on sex education strips. Originally broadcast 22nd July 2013 on Resonance 104.4 FM (London)
My bit starts around the 22 minute mark.
Thanks for having me on!
A Thing That I Did Today: recorded the sounds of my vibrators for the podcast (Thanks !)
I’ve been listening to That Thing You Like podcast since they first started posting earlier this year, when they were talking about Strip Search. Brian and Chris have such a great charisma together that I quickly became a fan of the show even when they were talking about other subjects than that one show I was on.
Then I had the opportunity to meet these two delightful Canadian boys at VanCaf a couple months ago and they were even more charming in real life. Since then I’ve gotten to see them a couple more times in Seattle and Portland and have declared us to be Actual Friends.
I would say that I was delighted they invited me on their show except that they didn’t invite me, I just told them I wanted to be on it and they kindly obliged. So go give it a listen! I had a genuinely great time talking with them on That Thing You Like, Episode 17.
Oh man, remember when I won that challenge in Strip Search to design a skatedeck for Wizards of the Coast? It’s here! ..Well, almost. It will be here this summer at the Van’s Warped Tour and you can see my final artwork above! Read more about it over at Wizards of the Coast.
With absolutely no relation to the above, part two of my podcast interview with Dr. Dick is now online. We talk more about comics and sex!
And! Final note!
Next week, June 18th, I will be in Seattle for Penny Arcade’s livestreaming of the Strip Search season finale episode! Unfortunately, it’s all sold out, but hey! It’ll be livestreamed so you can still watch from home :)
Last night my husband had me sketch up a handful of Lil’ Erikas to use on some promotional graphics for Oh Joy, Sex Toy and I thought this one came out pretty cute.
Hey! Ever wanted to listen to me talk about sex and comics on a podcast? YOU’RE IN LUCK because I did just that on Dr. Dick’s Sex Advice show.
Back in November last year, Bill Mudron, Katie Lane, Dylan Meconis and I met up for our fourth annual Freelancer Roundtable Podcast!
Each year, the day after Thanksgiving, we gather together to talk shop about freelancing, being self-employed, the lessons we’ve learned that year and answer people’s questions.

Aaaaand we’ve got unedited video clips of our roundtable as well! For some reason the first one won’t play for me (maybe it will for you?) but the rest still seem to be operational: Freelancer Rountable Videos
Tonight Jeff Parker (Author of Bucko, the graphic novel I drew in 2011) and I will be guest DJing and being interviewed on The Karl Show! (Starring Jason).

Listen to Leia Weathington and Erika Moen on Cort and Fatboy!
“Leia Weathington and Erika Moen are Smut Peddlers. Or at least, they’re comics creators who have contributed a 7 page opus de smut to contribute to an independent tome of lady-centric comics pornography. What the hell does any of that even mean? It’s so much better to hear them tell it, as well as the story of how they came to be collaborators, and what it’s like to work at Periscope Studios, apparently an oasis of sanity and awesomeosity in an industry not so much known for either things. Erika also breaks down the inspired question from Jeff Parker at the heart of her collaboration with him, “Bucko,” and since we’re discussing the art of titillation, it only makes sense that Paul Ryan’s pictures come up for discussion. BONUS: Leia and Bobby slapfight each other over fashion and mispronunciations!”
Where to find the things we talk about:
-Visit Leia Weathington, Dylan Meconis, Lucy Knisley, and Periscope Studio
-Buy The Sexy Times Poster
