I first interviewed Al Columbia nearly 4 years ago. Since that time, he has released Pim and Francie: The Golden Bear Days. A collection of work that probably consists of more printed work than all his previous work put together. We get pretty in-depth in this interview, clocking in at 2 hours of conversation. We cover a lot of ground and I feel like we could probably have another dozen conversations like this, and still have lots to talk about. Thanks to Al for allowing such a frank and revealing interview.

I can barely hear anything.
This is a great interview. Columbia was a total mystery to me before I listened to this (I was aware of him, as I’m sure many are, from the Big Numbers fiasco but never looked into his other work) but this is as fascinating a look into an artist’s world as I’ve heard in a long time. Great job.
However, I have to agree with the previous post, the sound quality is pretty bad. I have to boost it to 100% and jack my speaker volume through the roof to hear it.
For the uninitiated:
We talk about the sequencing in Pim and Francie.
This interview has a very historic feel to it. It’s incredible!

Nice to hear this.
He’s one of those damn geniuses that can frustrate with their lack of output and blow your mind when they do.
Great interview! What song ist it you played at the end? Sounds great!
