After locking her in a closet and tormenting her with the interminable saga of my Larry David moment in the karaoke showdown where we met, my guest and dear friend Casey Bazzell saves me from further embarrassment by singing three of her songs and closing out the podcast. Download this set at Casey’s brand spanking new Bandcamp page.
E-book formatting can be a real pain in the ass, especially when you’re publishing an e-book of poetry. Paul and I make an attempt to find solutions to common formatting problems, then discuss how the life of a traditionally published author is probably a huge pain in the ass too, because having to tour the material universe is a pain in the ass. We remember Abdul Kasent and the Off Broadway rehearsal house with fondness.
Paul and I discuss the perils and intricacies of font design, the perils and intricacies of the Israeli/Palestinian situation, and the perils and intricacies of shitting on younger people’s music, among other things. It’s a perilous, intricate episode that I’m sure you’ll enjoy, complete with a snippet of some music coming to the download section soon.

My guest on this episode is Robin Wheeler, cooking teacher par excellence, Woody Guthrie expert, and author of the highly anticipated book with the working title, Woody Guthrie In Love. Robin bares her soul to me about the book, kimchi cliches, her first catering gig and so much more in this very special installment of General Concerns.
Definitely a star-studded conversation. Barry White, Oprah Winfrey and Ray Parker Jr. lay the foundation for real-life Jerry Springer episodes, guns, gumbo, and the peculiarities of islanders.
