A writer friend of mine convinced me to do this podcast called The Other Stories. Yeah, I know…a friend convinces you to do something…but this turned out quite well. I was interviewed by Ilana Masad, the podcast host, and our discussion veered from the peculiar habits of writers, to the dangers of surfing, to Eudora Welty. An interesting feature of the podcast, to me, is that I read an excerpt of The Pursuit of Cool which has music. The podcast people created a soundtrack, a musical background to the excerpt: “The Bauhaus Mixtape,” which is from Part III of the novel.
