GUEST: NEAL ADAMS

Neal Adams is a legend in the comics industry and his art has graced the outside and inside of countless comics. He has had an impact on many other artists with his amazing style as well as fighting for the rights of artists in the industry.

Like many of the characters he has brought to life, Neal has a secret identity: for 30 years he has been researching the geological history and future of planet Earth and believes the evidence points to a theory quite different from that accepted by the mainstream scientific community. Listen in as Neal tells us of the fascinating idea of the Growing Earth and why it’s important!
