    48: Jordan Castro 2 (today) on The Reflective Age, Indecision, Authority, and Last Week's PETS Pod

    COLLEGE PARK–HARLEM — Summer solstice sit down with Jordan Castro, editor of New York Tyrant Magazine and Pets: An Anthology, recently out from Tyrant Books. He is the author of Young Americans (CCM 2013) and if I really wanted to feel happy I’d feel happy already (CCM 2014). Recorded today, reflecting on our convo recorded one week ago on Pets (2020) and The Present [Reflective] Age (1843, Tr. Walter Kaufmann) by Kierkegaard. Last week's stab was solid but had to run it back one time, really rip it. Do yourself a solid a cop PETS, it's a banger. https://store.nytyrant.com/products/pets

    Really enjoyed listening to this one back. Posting the original ep also, since we reference it, but I recommend listening to this one first.

    46: Sam Pink on THE ICE CREAM MAN (2020) and Early Stuff (2020)

    46: Sam Pink on THE ICE CREAM MAN (2020) and Early Stuff (2020)

    NYC-MICHIGAN — Sam Pink is the author of the novels Person (2010), The No Hellos Diet (2011), Rontel (2013), Witch Piss (2014), Garbage Times / White Ibis (Soft Skull, 2018), and the collections Ice Cream Man and Other Stories (Soft Skull, 2020), Early Stuff (11:11, 2020)—which includes his 2009 debut I Am Going to Clone Myself Then Kill the Clone and Eat It—and 99 Poems to Cure Whatever's Wrong with You or Create the Problems You Need (Clash, 2019), among others. He slangs his paintings and early books via IG dm @sam_pink_art, holler at him.

    I first encountered Sam Pink’s writing in 2017, when the homie Tren aka Based MTN recommended Witch Piss, which we immediate-react podded on. I’ve since read all his shit. I contacted him earlier this month about getting at one of his paintings, and our subsequent correspondence led to this pod. V psyched and grateful to Sam for being such a G, and for continuing to slang this fire art.
