Jason welcomes Daria Salamon, author of 'The Prairie Bridesmaid' & co-author of 'Don't Try This At Home,' for a jaw about why Winnipeg is cool for artists, the blonde awfulness of 'Sweet Valley High,' being covered in eggs & tears, the glory of handwritten letters, how as long as the writing is honest the rest can be fixed, & being bullied by a chicken named Rocky. Music by the august DJ Max in Tokyo; this episode contains the tracks 'San Fran Hippie Beat,' 'Damia,' & 'Shade,' all of which you can (& should) buy at http://soundcloud.com/djmaxintokyo.
