Art Eddy and Zach Rosenberg bring on New York Times Best Selling Writer, Tom Taylor to talk about his animated series called The Deep, fatherhood, comic books and more!

The Deep follows the Nekton family–a brilliant team of underwater explorers. With state-of-the-art technology and an unquenchable thirst for discovery, the Nektons explore the mysterious depths of the ocean, where most of our world lies unexplored and unexplained. While others look up to the stars, this family knows that an infinite number of things shine brightly in the darkness below. The Deep is a place where leviathans swim through sunken cities, where pirates lurk amidst floating black markets, and where a mysterious group of Guardians hide long lost secrets.
