Sound smart at parties! I read the books so you don't have to!

    What's Good W/ Ceschi Ramos

    What's Good W/ Ceschi Ramos

    Musician Ceschi Ramos joins Rebecca to discuss On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous, a letter from a Vietnamese American poet to his illiterate mother set in Connecticut, where both of them are also from. Working class Connecticut, the sacrifices we make for beauty, is destruction necessary for art, G.I. Johns, deathbeds, living in a state where the best minds are sucked up by NYC or Boston, 2 pm gunshots, and, opiate addiction, and flowers off the side of the highway

    California Fuckery W/ Guy Branum

    California Fuckery W/ Guy Branum

    Guy Branum joins Rebecca via zoom to discuss his sparkling Memoir in Essays at the beginning of quar. Guys life, pop culture, and the issues that thread through them. Gay men's voices and what defines them, parts of California nobody thinks about, being a fat gay man in West Hollywood, fun open mics, and the true magic of stand up is how debased you are by the art form along the way.
