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:

You can also sign up for my newsletter to keep up on the podcast, my writing projects, and generally cool literary shit.
Episode 45: Hayley Doyle: Buckle up, introverts, because two extroverts who’ve been locked down are coming at you in this episode. Hayley Doyle is an actress, singer, teacher, and writer with a fully-developed sense of adventure. She stopped by the Jam to talk about her debut novel Never Saw You Coming and the long, creative journey that took her from Liverpool to Dubai and then to London.

Hayley explains why she had to travel all the way to Dubai in order to find the time to write her novel, Never Saw You Coming.
