This is an edited sound recording of Michael Atchison (1933-), talking about his work before his recent retirement as chief political cartoonist for the Advertiser newspaper in Adelaide. He describes the process of getting a 'feel' for the main political news of the day, then choosing the topic of each cartoon. He also suggests that the negative public reaction to some of his cartoons was sometimes a result of readers getting his intent 'completely wrong'. The recording was made in October 2008.
