Shadercast Episode 5 Josie Reconsidered

An interview with Zach the Recent College Graduate Barista begins our episode, followed by a rather epic reading of “Josie Reconsidered,” an essay on The Outfield’s 1986 hit single “Your Love,” complete with cover versions and faux academic riffs. Narration recorded at Hudson River Coffee House. Music from Urban Surfers by Eric Schnorr.

We begin with a decade-old voicemail from poet Todd Colby accompanied by music from Urban Surfers. We then hear an account of a reading with yours truly at Pete’s Candy Store in Williamsburg, followed by a trip to see metal bands at the Rock n Derby, which segues nicely into a chapter from Shader, “Notes on The Bon Jovi Incident.”

Listen to me speak on the Dan Reads Books podcast.

Speaking of podcasts, I talked with writer/editor Dan Higgins about Shader for hew new Dan Reads Books podcast.

I had fun digging into discussions on writing, the retrospective voice, interviewing family members for research, and how working class memoirs lack bourgeoisie  group-hug endings. It should pop up on the podcast’s iTunes feed soon, and the Soundcloud link is embedded above.
