| E:281

What do hockey, baking, vlogging and comics have in common? They're all a part of what makes Ngozi so amazing! She is the creator of Check, Please! the fabulous web comic that took kickstarter by storm and is now available to purchase and borrow as complete collections of the stories of Bitty and his hockey adventures. Ngozi chats with Adam about where the idea came from for Check, Please! and how she creates each episode. She also guesses Adam's favorite pie correctly because she's clearly a savant.
