Three Percent #159: Publishing in 2025?
Chad and Tom are back to talk about Independent Bookstore Day (and Free Comic Book Day and Record Store Day), the Indie Playlist Initiative, fascists storming Politics & Prose, Alex Shephard’s Mueller Report article, how much money Stanford (the Duke of the West?) is wasting on their crappy football program instead of supporting their University Press, and a future of publishing article that might just be an advertorial for a live-streaming conference? (Wait, WAIT: “emoji activist” is a valid inclusion in your bio?)
Chad also thanks Louis Lüthi for sending along A Die with Twenty-Six Faces, and there’s a tiny little bit of Avengers: Endgame talk. (Although no baseball! Possibly because Chad doesn’t want to jinx the Cardinals, who have the best record AND best run differential in the National League.)
Finally: Nominate writers for the International Writers Hall of Fame! A post including the results will go up later this week, so make your recommendations now.
This week’s music is “Something Soon” by perennial podcast favorite Car Seat Headrest. (The TV destruction in this video is top tier.)
As always, feel free to send any and all comments or questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if there are articles you’d like us to read and analyze (or just make fun of), send those along as well.
