I’m a frequent guest on Boing Boing’s weekly GWEEK podcast, hosted by Mark Frauenfelder. This week, I appeared on GWEEK episode #132 along with Rob Reid, entrepreneur (he founded Listen.com, which created the Rhapsody music service) and author of the science fiction novel Year Zero.
We discussed: The Beast: Riding the Rails & Dodging Narcos on the Migrant Trail, by Oscar Martinez; New York Dolls by New York Dolls; books on Options (Options for the Beginner & Beyond by Edward Olmstead, Trading Option Greeks by Dan Passarelli); Wham-O Super-Book, a lavishly illustrated history of the greatest toy company ever; my own list of the 12 Best Novels for Older Kids from 1964; and HiLobrow’s serialization of King Goshawk and the Birds, a 1926 satirical science fiction novel by the Irish writer Eimar O’Duffy.
MY FIVE MOST RECENT GWEEK APPEARANCES: GWEEK 104 with Andy Ikhnato (July 2013) | GWEEK 111 with Clive Thompson (September 2013) | GWEEK 117 with Kevin Kelly (October 2013) | GWEEK 122 with Danny Hellman (November 2013) | GWEEK 129 with Mitch O’Connell (January 2014).
