Jason welcomes his long-time literary chum Stephen 'Tom' McKenna for a tender ramble about bludgeoning writers they don't like, ritual suicide in porno detail, movies about writers, Hamnet, stroking flanks, birthdays at Pizza Patio, the Dukes of Hazzard, & how (all evidence to the contrary) reading has made them better people. Jason also shares some very early sh*t, including his plagiarized Hardy Boys 'novel' & an incisive 1978 review of Star Wars. Music by the smouldering DJ Max in Tokyo. Join the early sh*t chat at https://www.facebook.com/WRTESpodcast & on Instagram @writersreadtheirearlyshit. You can also send an email to WritersReadTheirEarlyShit@gmail.com. Many thanks, wherever & whoever & however you are, for listening. Back in September with more of the same, only more so.Buzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched!
