    Ep 48: Tony Tulathimutte & Belinda McKeon

    This is not a Valentine's Day episode. But it is inappropriate for workplace listening, inappropriate for children, inappropriate for tender souls—wait, it's exactly right for tender souls. (Isn't all art?) Tony Tulathimutte and Belinda McKeon read from their new novels: on desire, longing, lust, shame, loneliness, family, and, yes, love. And porn.

Like words of chocolate melting on the tongue of my brain. Love the diversity of the writing presented and the podcast's production quality. Thank you, Catapult!

Infidel!

This podcast cannot launch a 90kg projectile 300m and is an inferior siege weapon!

Culture fix

I don’t get out to many lit readings in NYC, but thanks to the Catapult, I don’t need to. Love it so much.
