Episode 316: Check Out These Creatives

Show Notes

Join Vicky and Joe as they not so much announce with fanfare but blurt out the podcast name change—and then pay close attention because Vicky’s super-excited about Jarvis Cocker’s new memoir. Which leads on a little side-quest about the difference between memoir and biography, but it’s worth it. Then onwards to the main event: writers you should check out because they’re full of ideas you can steal and adapt—meandering to a close with David Sedaris’s not-so-secret weapon for always having something interesting to write about.
