Go, Watch: Garry Trudeau On BBC News

There's a pretty good seven-minute interview with Garry Trudeau over at the Newsnight site, including the most bizarre choice for Zonker Harris' voice I can imagine and odd, potentially insulting gifts supplied at the end. I haven't seen a lot of video interviews with Trudeau, so it's always interesting to see him on his feet -- he's actually sitting in an American-style diner -- and talking about his work. Because of the relative lack of familiarity with Trudeau's work by the Newsnight audience, it's a pretty basic 101 interview, things like Hunter Thompson and Donald Trump hating their depictions within the strip and whether or not President Obama could conceivably be represented by a half-full, half-empty glass of water.
