Phoebe Gloeckner on autopsies, aggression, hating herself as a kid and watching herself on the big screen; Amanda Uhle on bringing Mittenfest back to Ypsilanti; and Peter Larson on having to hide from the Kenyan anti-terror police after they were called in response to his guitar playing… on episode 25 of the Saturday Six Pack

Celebrated author and illustrator Phoebe Gloeckner was kind enough to stop by the AM 1700 studio this past Saturday night and talk with me for about an hour over bottles of Purple Gang Pilsner. Ostensibly, she was there to talk about her novel, The Diary of a Teenage Girl, and the film of the same […]

Michigan Musicians on Vacation: Misty Lyn Bergeron communing among the redwoods

A few weeks ago, kind of on a whim, I reached out to a local musician and asked if he’d be willing to talk about a recent vacation he’d taken to Gettysburg. It went well. I enjoyed hearing about something that he was insanely passionate about, and I think he enjoyed, for a change, talking […]

Next Thursday, assuming I can keep the panic attacks at bay, I’ll be conducting live exit interviews in front of a raucous, beer-swilling crowd at Conor O’Neills, as part of Concentrate Media’s moderately-distinguished speaker series.
