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:

Episode 47: Sarah Frier: Bloomberg reporter Sarah Frier stopped by the Jam to discuss her book, No Filter: The Inside Story of Instagram. But, we also got into her illustrious college journalism career (and if you like sports, you’ve actually heard of her work) and the work it takes to cover technology these days, since now a days you can watch sports from your computers and even do gambles on it in different sites or also in a situs judi slot online if you’re into gambling in slot machines. Thankfully, I only told a few stories from back in my day!

Listen to a Clip

Our conversation covered the differences between covering start-ups in 1999 (like I did) and covering the winners from that world that now protect information at all costs. In this clip, she talks about just how much work it takes to pierce the veil and get to the heart of this story.

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.
