TMR 14.7: “Alsaka” [J R]

Dan O’Brien (The House in Scarsdale, A Story that Happens) joins the podcast this week to talk about J R from a playwriting perspective. Lots of interesting insights in this episode, about theater, about the relationship between art and commerce in the book, and about GameStop.

This week’s music is “Our Life Is Not a Movie or Maybe” by Okkervil River.

If you’d prefer to watch the conversation, you can find it on YouTube along with all our past episodes.
