Man, it takes me a long time to get out new episodes, but I hope it’s worth the wait (assuming, of course, you’ve been waiting…Humor me, would you?). I upgraded to a pro account so that means I have a financial incentive to pump out more episodes!
I also forget how long it takes to edit and throw together show notes. Hey, it’s a fun hobby and like I’ve said before, it’s an excuse for me to talk shop with writers I admire and maybe writers you’ve never heard of. You can say you knew them when they were on that little #CNF podcast. Like Carrie Hagen or Joe DePaulo.
Here I’ve got Sarah Einstein, author of Mot: A Memoir, a book that explores the friendship between Sarah and a homeless, mentally ill man named Mot (Tom backwards). He’s a brilliant, fascinating, resourceful man and an unlikely source of stability for Sarah during this period of her life.
