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 42: Kristen Philipkoski: My old Wired.com colleague Kristen “KP” Philipkoski dropped by The Downtown Writers Jam to talk about her new venture, Mean Magazine, a feminist magazine for GenX women. Along the way, we also reminisced about the insanity of the dotcom era and the craziness of the media way back when.

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.
