Hey all! This week’s guest and I could have gone on for an extra thirty minutes, I’m sure, even if that was just time spent nerding out about music. Matt Cahill joins us to talk about his novel Radioland. Hope you like it!

Remember if you’re in Hamilton, come see me this weekend at Supercrawl! Saturday at 630 pm (interviewing Mike Barclay) and Sunday at 1 pm (on a panel with Terri Favro and Sifton Tracey Anipare).
Hey folks! Shameless self plug, then on to the interview! RIVER, DIVERTED will be published this fall! Pre-order it here: https://palimpsestpress.ca/…/river-diverted-jamie-tennant/
River, Diverted is the weird tale of River Black, screenwriter, horror buff, unhappy and frustrated artist. Oh, and it takes place in Nagano, Japan. It’s also “a dark fairy tale that explores the trickery of memory, the delicacy of friendship, the nature of creativity and the deliverance of hope.”
Insert smiley but nervous emoji here.
Hey all! Things sound a little different today because cell reception was spotty and we switched to Zoom. I could see going that way permanently if I can afford a decent microphone…
It was nice to see my guest for a change, though! I had a great conversation with Daniel Scott Tysdal about his collection of short stories, Wave Forms and Doom Scrolls. Was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy.
The remarkable Aimee at Palimpsest Press has confirmed…River, Diverted will be published in fall ’22. I might even post the book jacket info soon. I’m thrilled and terrified at the same time. Like always, I guess 😀
Hey all! Last night I had the pleasure of attending the launch for Amanda Leduc‘s new book, Disfigured: On Fairy Tales, Disability, and Making Space. This is the second incredible book about disability that I’ve read lately. The first was the extremely passionate and eye-opening Falling For Myself by Dorothy Ellen Palmer. A must-read, in my opinion. Check out today’s show for our conversation.
