Mike Allen
Sundaze cartoonist Mike Allen — whose sketch scene here was from his first NonDoc comic in September 2015 — is the guest on Episode 12 of Live From the News Dungeon. (NonDoc)

Cartoonist, artist and all-around cool guy Mike Allen has been involved with NonDoc since its earliest days in 2015, and now he can add “podcast guest” to his NonDoc résumé.

On this episode, Mike, who draws our weekly Sundaze cartoon, fills in the newcomers on the prehistoric days of NonDoc and shares his plans for a post-pandemic personal rebrand. Of course, there’s also plenty of ‘toon talk about where Mike’s ideas come from, his most popular NonDoc cartoons and why so many political cartoons are so bad.

And make sure to stick around until the end to hear about producer Bryce Holland’s short career as a teenage prison guard in southeast Oklahoma.
