What started out as a streaming audio show at Wired in 2000 morphed into this little program in my tiny corner of the Internet.
Author and publisher Brad King hosts The Downtown Writers Jam Podcast, this hour-long, one-on-one interview program where authors discuss the horrible choices they made in life that led them down the road to writing. Sometimes there is whiskey. Oftentimes there is cursing. But always entertaining. (My friends wouldn’t lie to me, right?)
You can purchase the books through my bookstore, which helps support independent stores across American.
And, you can listen to the podcast:
Like what you hear? Folks, help us out and leave a review on one of those sites and share this with your friends!
You can also sign up for my newsletter to keep up on the podcast, my writing projects, and generally cool literary shit.
(Bonus) Episode 33: George Carlin (aka, the one that started it all): In 2001, I hosted a thirty-minute interview show as part of Wired.com’s strategy to expand into multimedia. Along with my producer Jeremey Barna, we were given free reign to experiment. Most of what we did was not great, but this interview show proved to be popular. In mid-February, I had the chance to sit down with comedian George Carlin.
That show—and that interview—was the genesis of The Downtown Writers Jam Podcast.
