I’ll just quote Wikipedia for a summary of his biography.
Previously, I said that Scott Adams is my favourite cartoonist, which is why I invited him onto my podcast a few years ago.
But he has been knocked out of the top spot by Bob Moran.
will the real cartoonists please stand up
The Covid era has changed a lot of things for me, one of those things being the political cartoons I read, the number of which has declined to nearly zero. For reasons that are a mystery to me, most of my colleagues became pro-establishment hacks with balls resembling a vagina. They do little more than perpetuating politically correct narratives.
It’s very strange.
As Bob said in his conversation with me, cartoonists who remained true to the anti-establishment irreverence required of the court jester, can be counted on one hand. For example, here in South Africa, I can think of, maybe, one other cartoonist who gave a middle finger to the jab.
I began following Bob’s work after hearing that he was fired, and what a blessing it has been.
Bob joined me for a chat about
- his background and work ethic;
- maturing from liberalism to conservatism;
- questioning everything, including Michelle Obama’s gender;
- what topics he avoids;
- waking up happy and with purpose;
- whether or not dinosaurs are real;
- people thinking that he’s a grey old man; and
- where society is heading.
