The Bbc on ABC
Greg and I were interviewed for the Book Hub on ABC Radio National, Australia, about our Bowie Bookclub podcast and how unpredictable and inspiring David Bowie's book list can be. Find us chatting with the charming Claire Nichols following a piece on writing tips from John McPhee and a profile of Western Sydney's diverse literacy collective, Sweatshop.
Get Your Jareth On!
Greg and I were interviewed by Dwarf + Giant, the blog at The Last Bookstore in Los Angeles, and got to talk about how our bookclub got started, whether we're going to impose a dress code, and our early David Bowie memories.
Passengers on Alaska Airlines got the chance to see the piece I wrote on Sherman Alexie, the man who can manage to make a joke of anything; even surviving his own brain surgery.
Don't worry, if you weren't flying Alaska in September, you can still check out the piece here, or by visiting Alaska Airlines Beyond Magazine virtual edition.

Check us out also on Facebook & Twitter, where we post the ephemera along our way though each book.
