If you chat with a cartoonist when they’re not on deadline, tangential conversations are inevitable. Welcome to this episode of the Edict with editorial cartoonist for the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, Cathy Wilcox.
On Friday afternoon we talked about luck, fairness, autumn, corduroy, how to annoy ants, swearing in French, allergies, being triggered, coping with the hate mail, the gentle art of blocking people on Twitter, and probably too much personal information.

Cathy Wilcox has been on Edict once before, on The 9pm Public House Forum 3 way back in 2016.
