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.

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.

    Excellent news that Nick Sullivan is the scheduled guest for the last episode. I’ve listened to about 900 audio books since 1997 and his reading of JR is close to the top for best narrations. Double points for the novel being one of the most fascinating novels I read in a while.
