Get a dose of weird with recent episodes of some of our favorite podcasts and vlogs, including…
REVIEW ME PLEASE: S02 E02A Ayalew Mesfin – Hasabe (My Worries) Unboxing
Bizarro author, poet, and Australian S.T. Carledge has created something in total defiance of all the sea of podcasts that saturates the internet. This new and groundbreaking interview format features all the candid conversation of a podcast… but you can read it. That’s right: real, emotional, boundary-breaking revelations and soul-searching dialogue, all in the familiar format of words.
You might say it’s a blog or an interview or whatever, but RESULTS MATTER. As someone who partook in this interview, I can say that it was a pleasure to chat with S.T. Cartledge, and he really steered the conversation into some interesting areas. He’s already put down some fantastic talks with other bizarro authors like Kirk Jones and Justin Grimbol. Head over to YOU READ MY PODCAST for these stories and more to come.
This week’s roundup of podcasts incluuuuuudddeeesss….
BIZZONG! Featuring the 2017 Recipient of the Wonderland Book of the Year Award, Danger Slater. Danger talks about his moment at BizarroCon when he won the award and how it affected him. More important, we talk about his newest book, which comes out February 14th, 2018. He Digs A Hole is chock full of symbolism and analogies. And just went you think you’ve got this clever little narrative all figure out, BOOM, in steps the world’s most explosive writer to lay down some fourth wall breaking commentary that somehow manages to weave its way into the plotline as well.
GET LIT WITH LEZA! Rios de la Luz is a queer xicana/chapina author of the short story collection, The Pulse Between Dimensions and The Desert and the novella, Itzá. She lives in El Paso with the love of her life and her beautiful dog. Rios and Leza talk about magic, dreams, Korean dramas, & dealing with trauma through art.
JOHN WAYNE LIED TO YOU! John Wayne Comunale says: I’m back fresh from Days of the Dead in Atlanta where I shared a table with two very delightful gentlemen: David W. Barbee and Mike Lombardo, and this week’s story is about that very trip. What a time was had in which I learned many things, gained new perspective on art and life, and turned into a big softy when it came to kids and reading. I hope you enjoy listening to these adventures as much as we did having them. In sadder new, we really miss our Uncle Charles . . .
AND REVIEW ME PLEASE! Technically not a podcast, but this is a special two-parter! Michael and PJ have genuine celebrity guests, cocktails, and the unboxing of Fiona Apple! See Part 1 and Part 2 on their YouTube channel.
Today’s installment of Podcastlandia presents another episode of JOHN WAYNE LIED TO YOU, where Old Man Comunale has a senior moment and accidentally deletes the episode. Not to worry, it was reposted and you can listen to a brand new story and John Wayne’s recap of BizarroCon 2017.
And as a bonus, a new podcast has been created by Lucas Mangum and his lovely wife Jean! The Mangum Show will review shows and movies, plus guests, readings, interviews and more! Check it out here. You know you want to. Just look at them adorable faces.
And finally, horror writers Brian Keene, Lesley Conner, Mary SanGiovanni, Damien Angelica Walters, J.P. Sloan, and our very own weirdo Eric Hendrixson all appeared on the latest episode of Eating the Fantastic.
We here at Bizarro Central like to keep up with all the weird podcasts out there (especially the ones that are OUT THERE), and now we’re happy to present you with a new podcast created by bizarro alums Michael Allen Rose and Danger Slater. It is very humbly called UNREASONABLY HANDSOME…
…and you can check it out here!
Here at Bizarro Central we like to keep you up to date on what our weirdos are doing out in the internet. Casting their Pods and Tubing their Yous, if you will.
First up is Michael Allen Rose’s REVIEW ME PLEASE, the latest episode of which stars MAR and PJ (who is not the cat pictured above… or is he?) discussing the Gorillaz album “Demon Days” along with green tea and generalized insanity.
And for podcast listeners, you can’t do much better than THE DANGER AND LISA SHOW, an ongoing display of utter ridiculousness from one of bizarro’s most interesting couples. Catch up with them and hear their thoughts on Copyright Infringement, then check out all of their previous episodes and some from the future as well. Danger Slater is one of my favorite bizarro writers, and Lisa ain’t bad, either.
