Three Percent #9: Authors I Used to Love

In this week’s podcast, we talk a bit about authors we “broke up” with. Writers like, say, Philip Roth, who evokes a pretty harsh reaction from Tom . . . Additionally we talk about authors we thought we had given up on, but to whom we keep returning and returning.

And as usual, we digress a bit, talking smack about Milan Kundera and praising Robert Coover, both for The Universal Baseball Association, Inc., J. Henry Waugh, Prop. and Noir.

We also talk about summer vacations, because, well, we’re both going to be gone for the next couple weeks, so expect podcast #10 in mid-July.

This week’s featured song is Helena Beat by Foster the People, a KCRW favorite who produces insanely infectious songs. (“Pumped Up Kicks” and “Houdini” fall into this category as well.)
