Episode 41: Erik Deckers

I sat down with Erik Deckers, a humor column writer, and the co-author of several social media books. He’s a grinder, the kind of working writer whose schedule just exhausts me. (I did that for two years and couldn’t take the stress.) We talked about that lifestyle, his writer-in-residency at the Jack Kerouac House, and his first book, Mackinac Island Nation. Oh, and there’s cussing.
