Press interviews


“Words, Images, & Worlds” Podcast Interview!

Earlier this year, I was a guest on an episode of the “Words, Images, & Worlds” podcast, where host Jason DeHart interviewed me. During the interview, we chatted about some of my recent projects, my writing process, and my many theories on what makes Batman tick. Or, as Jason put it in his official description of the episode:

“Author Arie Kaplan talks about writing comics, television, and more, including stories of his creative journey and unexpected turns.”

Anyway, the episode is out NOW!

Check out the YouTube version of the episode HERE.

And listen to the Apple Podcasts version of the episode HERE.

BTW, if you do listen to the interview, you’ll notice that towards the end of it, I briefly mention that the next couple of “96 Facts” books will be coming out soon. They’re actually coming out VERY soon. As in, tomorrow. Yup, 96 Facts About Selena Gomez and 96 Facts About Lizzo will both be published tomorrow, Tuesday, March 5th, 2024, by Penguin Random House. Both books are written by me and illustrated by the amazing Risa Rodil.

And just in case you don’t know:

The “96 Facts” series is a line of middle-grade nonfiction celebrity biographies. The first two “96 Facts” books, 96 Facts About Taylor Swift and 96 Facts About Timothée Chalamet, came out in September of 2023. All of the “96 Facts” books are written by yours truly and illustrated by Risa Rodil.


Sequential Crush Podcast Interview!

Recently, I was a guest on the Sequential Crush podcast, hosted by author and comics historian Jacque Nodell. We talked about my writing career, my creative influences, and more. I had a fantastic time talking to Jacque, and I hope you enjoy listening to the episode! 

Here’s Jacque’s description of the episode, from the Sequential Crush site:

“Join me for the first Sequential Crush podcast interview with writer Arie Kaplan. Arie has written for it all — TV, comics, magazines, and books, and he doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. Arie shares how he broke into pop culture writing, how he made a move from intern to professional, and he divulges his inspirations, faves, and dream projects.”
