During 2018 I decided that I wanted to start a show in which guests and I discuss politically incorrect ideas.
The mainstream (and social) media have become increasingly intolerant towards independent thought, silencing and mislabelling those with alternative opinions. Even many of my fellow cartoonists - the supposed bastions of irreverence - are consumed by self-destructive groupthink.
The name ‘Jerm Warfare’ was taken from the title of my first book (published in 2013).
Jerm Warfare: The Battle Of Ideas.
It began as a monthly in-studio production. A couple of episodes were recorded, but I wasn’t happy with the direction in which the show was heading. While the four-member team did an incredible job, everything felt a bit too bloated and scripted.
I wrote a slightly lengthier blog post about it.
After spending some time back at the drawing board, I relaunched Jerm Warfare as a weekly live stream.
