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 40: Lauren Gaskill

Last year I had the chance to talk with Lauren Gaskill, one of my former writing students. Since graduating, she’s had an amazing start to her career, which isn’t surprising because she’s one of the most ambitious young writers I’ve ever worked with. She’s not only the author of Into the Deep: Diving Into a Life of Courageous Faith, but also a national speaker and the founder of She Found Joy.

About Lauren Gaskill

Lauren Gaskill is the author of Into the Deep: Diving Into a Life of Courageous Faith, a national speaker and the founder of She Found Joy. Diagnosed with a connective tissue disorder (Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos), Lauren is passionate about encouraging others to fight for faith and keep hope alive — no matter what. When she’s not writing, Lauren loves to cook, bake and go on hikes with her husband and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, who is affectionately named Reese after Lauren’s favorite candy, peanut butter cups

This newsletter is the outgrowth of The Downtown Writers Jam podcast. What that means is I will collect information about the authors I interview, book happenings around the Web, and other literary events that I find interesting. Without you, I'm just a crazy guy sitting in his office furiously screaming on the page for no reason.
