Wonderful Podcast

Enjoyed being interviewed by Nicole Christina. We had a lively conversation about activism--the protests of today vs those in the Anti-Vietnam War era (as depicted in my novel The Fourteenth of September) and what rings through both. Also about the hamster wheel of history, the role of the writer in these "interpretative years," advice to new writers and why Boomers are really OK and more. An insightful and interesting talk.
