Hi guys! Thank you so much for all the nice reach arounds. Just kidding. Thanks for reaching out, wishing me well & sending me all the healing thoughts. Great news - I didn't get horrible news from my cardiologist! I'm still not the picture of health, but there's a game plan. So it'll be a long process for me, but I should start feeling a bit more like myself soon. I will be back next week, recording you a new episode. That's my biggest goal. I've missed you all very much, and thanks for putting up with me. I really appreciate the love and support.

In case you guys read these, I thought I'd briefly let you know why I'm only posting old episodes again. I've had issues with my heart since I was a little kid, and they just keep getting worse. It's been an awful and scary month, but I am supposed to find out my cardiologist's game plan next Wednesday, April 26th. So send me some love/prayers/vibes/health/thoughts/anything. I need it. Thanks for your patience. Hopefully I'll be back soon. I miss you guys and I miss being able to talk things out.

This book is "a compendium of found poems pieced together form the post-game interviews of professional athletes." say writers Jeff Parker and Pasha Malla. This is a collection of truly remarkable, gorgeous, funny, bizarre & poignant poems by people like Ron Artest, Kevin Garnett, George Best and Tiger Woods. I can not recommend this book enough. It is phenomenal. Preorder it on featherproof.com for only $14.95.

I'm so so sorry everybody! I'm caffeine-free for medical reasons and don't feel like myself. It sounds like I'm accidentally unplugged from an outlet. But I'm gonna keep on keepin' on. Truckin'

Today my pants were so tight I forgot to plug my mic into the computer. Audio troubles due to too much takeout. Human troubles due to too much of everything. But hey, as Markson reminds us, we're all gonna die anyway. Markson proposed a Death-of-the-Month-Club.

David Markson died in his own bed and his entire library went directly to the Strand Bookstore.

take it with you

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:

Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:


This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:

Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.


Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
