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 38: Julia Scheeres

My friend and former Wired.com colleague Julia Scheeres has written two best sellers: Jesus Land, a memoir of her relationship with her adopted brother David as they grew up in a fundamental Christian household in Indiana, and A Thousand Lives, a heart-wrenching story about the people who were murdered in Jonestown. But her story will blow you away. It’s the story of bravery and perseverance.
