The Weird Studies Episode


Well my friends, it finally happened.

I was on Weird Studies with J.F. Martel and Phil Ford.

Weird Studies, as you may know, is one of my favorite podcast shows. The reasons should be obvious (and if they’re not, listen to the previous episode to understand why). The rapport between J.F. and Phil really makes the show what it is, but they’re also equally brilliant. And so, I was really honored--and a bit nervous--to finally make an appearance.

It went better than I could’ve expected. 

We talked our way into some good places. Weird places, but definitely good ones.

Listen to the show right here, or wherever you download podcasts.

Here are the show references, for the curious.
