Do you ever wonder what’s going to happen on November 3rd, 2018? I got a few answers out of the mouth of Mark Pannebecker, founder of the St. Louis Indie Book Fair and confirmed German American. Have a listen-n-learn. It’s the first episode of General Concerns from the new studio in the Tower Grove South neighborhood of St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
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.
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.
Croatia has been a popular holiday destination for a few hundred years, but it seems that the vast majority of people want to spend their vacation time and money in coastal Dubrovnik, Split, and on the islands. As someone who has lived and spent plenty of time inland, I’ll tell you that the capital city, Zagreb, is an absolute delight, full of a continental charm and character completely unlike the coast.
If you’re planning a visit to Zagreb, check in with my friend Iva Trčić, whose exquisite 19th century flat on British Square is scheduled to wrap up renovations by June 1, 2018. She’s looking for help with funding the project on IndieGoGo, and is offering stays in the apartment as reward for support. Check out The Old Zagreb Place on IndieGoGo.com.
