"In don't need swearing, I only enjoy swearing."

Fuck yes.

Man, I feel like the last time I'd heard of Jesse Ventura mentioned in connection with TV was when he was doing that stupid conspiracy show.

Don't worry about the South by blah. Many of we in Austin call it Fuck by Fuck Off!

Love from Austin.

Thanks for mentioning my horror stories! I had thought they would mostly serve as inspiration for the longer stories I write, but it turns out a two-sentence horror story is a lot like a very simple joke with a setup/punchline, and anything more is too much.

Your point?

Exactly!

Thanks to the podcast, I realized I had totally missed out on the whole Gritty spectacle, apart from seeing bits and pieces about "new hockey mascot." It's pretty hilarious.

Speaking of conspiracies, I do not believe in spoops.

I have been listening to this podcast this morning and it's been a great way to spend the morning. Thank you to Jessamyn and Josh for just being constant delights.

Thanks for including Lyric McKerrigan, Secret Librarian! Just to clarify, it's not part of a series. I would love to write a sequel one day, but for now at least, it's a stand-alone book.

(Also I should maybe mention: if you know Vera Brosgol's work from Be Prepared or Anya's Ghost, you might be expecting a full-length graphic novel aimed at middle schoolers and older. This is a picture book aimed at a picture book audience.)

I love that Jessamyn and Jesse "The Body" a.k.a. "The Mind" Ventura have crossed paths: this shrinks the entire world a bit.

It's just perfect when an interview about the Digital Divide requires an hour's drive just to get to the enabling technology (a camera and a fern and a chair), while one of the parties has excused himself from using the 21st Century's defining tech device. And it's *kisses fingers* when the woman drove to the guy, not vice versa, and the guy still requires the woman in his life to use a phone for him.

Hearing two people acknowledge that they are angry and everyone is angry without sounding too angry about it is fairly calming.
