EP. 11 — John Moe, Steve Agee
Nate celebrates the achievement of releasing over 10 episodes by sharing a very funny piece written by Dan Kennedy entitled “I Just Found Out ABC Family Is Going To Pass On My Pitch” and read by the great Steve Agee live from the UCB-theatre in Los Angeles. Then, Nate chats with John Moe, host of the funniest show on National Public Radio called Wits. They talk about John’s book “Dear Luke, We Need to Talk, Darth: And Other Pop Culture Correspondences,” why listening to the same music helps him write, and trying to add more silliness to public radio. Finally, Nate sends us off by reading a simple and powerful short story by Tim Wirkus entitled “An Intrusion.” Grab Jonathan Franzen’s “The Corrections” and send in your thoughts on the book at firstname.lastname@example.org for the next book club episode and come see the show LIVE at UCB-Franklin in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 8th at 7:30pm!
