i loved that there is more biomass in the unseen world of chemolithotrophs beneath the surface of the earth than there is life above...and the story he told of the fake skull discovery!

Where else can you hear a poetry podcast talk abt the fervid love of cyanobacteria & algae as a model for intimacy, abt trilobites, monoceratops, chemolithotrophs, language/silence & grief? Listen to interview the inimitable Forrest Gander:

you'll be shocked at just how many ARCS publishers send out blindly to people. I am always receiving books that are wildly offbase for the show. they treat them like candy.

even small presses have someone who mails out ARCS and final copies of books to media. it doesn't need to be a big publicity department to get a book from them

that is why you aren't getting the books. if instead you reach out through their publisher you can get the book in advance of publication and schedule the interview through them and you will likely end up on their lists for future books

are you scheduling your guests through their publicists and requesting their books through the publicists? if so, you'll likely get books sent to you that you didn't ask for

Yes, I'm a little obsessed with Max Porter's LANNY, but you should also listen to this almost-two-hour interview with him about it because of the sheer audaciousness of an almost-two-hour—and wholly delightful—interview about a book.

Also loved 's interview with — can't wait to read The Reckonings. So much in this one, and taking with me the idea of "little mercies." This ep is definitely one for the morning commute, or for those that run, the morning run as the sun comes up

a perfect pairing with the podcast episode where you discuss in-depth an excerpt of Layli's book!

While you're in your Mr. Rogers feels, a few things to remind you about his radical theology. 1/x He was a Presbyterian minister whose life’s work was built almost entirely (if not entirely) around Leviticus 19:18 (Love your neighbor as yourself.) Hence... the neighborhood.

One fiction workshop, we had a writing prompt with tarot cards, and I drew the dolphin card. What I wrote is up on this morning, and I’m grateful to for being such a generous editor. Thanks to also, for a cool prompt.

Naomi Shihab Nye told me about delicious language, a trunk full of treasures, and what makes us capable of killing. Oh, and she shared a gorgeous poem by her 3-year-old grandson! Conversations like these make me feel like there is hope.
