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.
I only have a quick couple of announcements regarding the launch of a new story series, a new era for the podcast, and a new studio headquarters in St. Louis. Please share this one, become a member… HAALP! We need to get my studio moved and get the next quarterly production cycle funded and moving along. I can’t wait to be up in you again, Southside. It’s been a while.
If you’d prefer to read the full announcement, it’s right here.
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.
