Episode Notes

In this pivot point in the series, we're joined by the creator of Lego Ankh-Morpork to talk about old and new heroes, the changeover between Kirby and Kidby art (and which we like better), and the canon-but-also-kind-of-fan-fiction nature of The Last Hero. 

"Poets have tried to describe Ankh-Morpork. They have failed. Perhaps it's the sheer zestful vitality of the place, or maybe it's just that a city with a million inhabitants and no sewers is rather robust for poets, who prefer daffodils (and no wonder). 

I am no poet, or artist, or architect (I am probably more B.S. Johnson than Leonard of Quirm) but I decided to undertake the mammoth task of recreating the Discworld's greatest city, one Lego brick at a time. It started out very much as a personal project which has grown into something so much more. 

The community on Twitter @LegoAnkhMorpork is growing every day and is the main place to join in discussions and view my latest Lego creations!"
