Jan Eliot

Host Sheila Bender talks via phone with Eugene, Oregon cartoonist Jan Eliot, whose widely syndicated strip, Stone Soup, appears in over 200 newspapers. After 20 years of a daily dose of the strip’s characters, Eliot has semi-retired and the cartoon will now appear only on Sundays. The interview talks about her background, how she developed and writes the strip, and delves into a discussion of other women cartoonists.
