TMR 14.10: “Hoppin’ with Flavor!”
Kaija Straumanis joins Chad and Brian this week to talk about toxic masculinity, the genius of the J R audiobook, Bach, “up yours, up mine,” connections to Pynchon, shit & money & the American Dream, and the implosion of J R’s paper empire.
This week’s music is “Deadlines (Hostile)” by Car Seat Headrest.
If you’d prefer to watch the conversation, you can find it on YouTube along with all our past episodes. (This episode is really fun to watch because Chad’s camera shorted out . . . ) You can join us next week for the final episode with a special final guest where you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions, make comments, or correct inaccurate statements. Here’s where you can find the complete reading schedule.
Be sure to order Brian’s book, Joytime Killbox, which is now officially available at better bookstores everywhere thanks to BOA Editions.
