Originally known as "Last Gasp Eco-Funnies," the publishing company that Ron Turner and others founded celebrates 50 years next April.

In this podcast, Ron talks about starting Last Gasp with Slow Death, an underground comic that featured art by Greg Irons, among others. Over the years, he's worked other artists, including R. Crumb, Spain Rodriguez, Trina Robbins, and more. Ron also shares stories of hanging out with Timothy Leary and Warren Hinckle.
