TMR 14.11: “Hey . . . You Listening?” [J R]

The final episode of the season! First off, Chad and Brian wrap things up, and preview season 15 (Virginie Despentes’s Vernon Subutex trilogy, coming in April!), then Nick Sullivan talks to Chad about recording the audiobook, how he got into that business in the first place, the challenges of recording a book like this, and much much more.

This week’s music is “In America” by Ezra Furman.

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.

Follow Open Letter, Chad Post, and Brian Wood for random thoughts and information about upcoming guests.

Be sure to order Brian’s book, Joytime Killbox, which is now officially available at better bookstores everywhere thanks to BOA Editions.

    Thanks for a great series of podcasts.
    BTW, I think Bast has been inadvertently set up with Amy by Eigen at the end of the book, bringing her the only close relative she cares about, while Gibbs, who actually rescued Amy’s brother self-sabotaged again.
    I listened to the audio book on cd in my car, over and over (since I had problems burning the cd’s I made each successful burn last). I never figured out the deal with the quarter hanging on a string, but otherwise, the more I listened the more I was in awe for how clearly Gaddis imagnined each scene. Like the movie trope of the call coming from inside the house the chaos is coming from real life.
