Post-Apocalyptic Crow has Last Word in ‘Hollow Kingdom’

October 30, 2019

This Saturday, November 2, Kira Jane Buxton joins us with ‘Hollow Kingdom,’ a first-crow account of life after the apocalypse told by domesticated American crow S.T.–Shit Turd, if you don’t please–with wisdom about the mofos of the world imparted by his not-so-dearly departed step-dad Big Jim–

 

 

‘Hollow Kingdom,’ “a humorous, big-hearted and boundlessly beautiful romp through the apocalypse,”

is the best-selling first novel for Kira Jane Buxton, whose work has appeared in the New Yorker, the New York Times and McSweeney’s.

You can fly with the crows and over the mofos on the Whad’ya Know Podcast livecast https://www.facebook.com/whadyaknow.net/  this Saturday, November 2 at 10 AM Central–

Whad’ya Know Testifyin’

October 10, 2019

Hi, the former Michael Feldman here, answering the question I get asked most “What ever happened to you?”

Not Much/ Not!–You?

For one thing I’ve discovered I can perfectly reproduce any Beatles solo (except Paul’s) when singing to my dog Bella.

And, no, she does not howl, but wags her little tail for more. Or maybe for a treat for sitting through it.

And for another (thing) I awoke one morning to find myself transformed into a podcaster, just like Gregor Samsa , should podcasters and cockroaches turn out to be in the same genus.

Podcasting!

Which I used to think was just playing to a middle-aged guy on a treadmill (in more than one sense) who will listen to pretty much anything to assuage the pain and blot out the cacophony of Millennial treadmills like tanks advancing.

Fact is I was wrong–turns out there are several middle-aged guys and 1 or 2 hot yoga ladies also needing my assuagence.

In fact, during our 3 so-far-year-run the Whad’ya Know Podcast, now with Lyle Anderson, raconte- & carilloneur ,

has been listened to over 600,000 times!

So, OK, probably by the same few inveterate or invertebrate Whad’ya Know obsessives (God Love ’em!).

Thanks to our medium-well demographic, I’m happy to say we have zoomed to the top of the eye charts!

Still, like yelling in the wilderness when there is no boy nor wolf, should we only rely on word of mouth we will be talking to ourselves, which is a little too much like podcasting for my taste.

That’s why we’re asking for your help–no, not donations–that’s for Patreon.com, for as little as $3/month–but by telling someone you know who you suspect may have been still sitting on their hands these past few years about the Whad’ya Know Podcast, and asking–nay, imploring them to tell their theirs, and and theirs theirs, until we, together, through the strength of our shared belief and sheer numbers will shine, like the Bard’s candle, “a good dead in a naughty world.”

Hark, a novel of Mental Archery, by Sam Lipsyte 5-11-19 on Whad’ya Know Podcast

May 7, 2019

So, Mental Archery, in Sam Lipsyte’s novel Hark, is the mindful yet un- approach of bow hunting your goals espoused by self-effacing guru Hark Morner in post-post apocalyptic America, i.e, here & now.

This is the kind of book, like Catch-22 or Candy, that would’ve been passed around locker to locker at Washington High, and the book which you will buy several replacement copies of all your life.

Check out just a short clip at the start of Chapter 2, with Fraz Penzig (purposely misnamed by father Franz who had been called Fraz over a public address system) on the road with Hark to spread the rudiments of Mental Archery to the seekers of Pickering, NY, once the largest producer of frozen waffles in the country–

Dreyer’s English are the best! This Saturday on Whad’ya Know, the Podcast

April 1, 2019

 

Among other really important jobs at Random House (VP & executive managing editor and probably more)

Benjamin Dreyer is the Copy Chief. I believe this means he gets to edit the works of pretty much anybody on the list he

 

wants to, which has included Michael Chabon, Edmund Morris, Elizabeth Strout, E.L. Doctorow and Calvin Trillin, among

others.  Big job–this is like being able to tell King James he’s using the wrong meaning of Virgin, so change it.

 

His new one, Dreyer’s English, is a guide to usage and style not just for A-listers but for all of us daring to go beyond 140

characters in his or her or their writing. (Believe me, this will come up. Maybe even ter.

If we can believe this elegant voice on Audible is a guy from Queens, let’s listen to Benjamin Dreyer with evocative thoughts

on the evocative comma:
