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.
Episode 37: Woody Lewis: My friend for nearly twenty years, author Woody Lewis and I sat down for the first time to talk about his book Three Lost Souls: Stories about race, class and loneliness and life. What came out of that: his membership in the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), meeting and playing drums with Jimi Hendrix, his family’s relationship to Sally Hemings, and the struggle with writing about being black in America.
