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.
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.
Paul talks with me about Zen Buddhist meditation and home electrical maintenance, and, of course, music finds its way into the conversational mix, both as subject and reference point.
