The two have joined forces to present a party and reading that celebrate their magazines' spring issues. Jessica & Dusty talk about their collaboration, print vs. digital and what it's like to meet readers face-to-face. Midway through, the group is joined by National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize finalist Adrian Matejka. Adrian reads his poem, "Famous Negro Athletes," published in the latest issue of Boulevard. He tells us about writing a script for a new graphic novel based on the life of boxer Jack Johnson.

022: Jewish Noir, featuring Jedidiah Ayers & Tasha Kaminsky

EA Jewish con sells himself out by getting a swastika tattoo. A young woman finds a strangled guy on her first day of work at a synagogue. A turn of the century Jewish bootlegger (the last man legally hanged in Illinois) asks for a black hood at his hanging -- as one final jab at the KKK. All this (not to mention Moses himself) is Jewish Noir, a collection of all-new short stories published in 2015 by PM Press. In this episode, Nicky speaks with two St. Louis fiction writers published in the collection, Jedidiah Ayers & Tasha Kaminsky. The two read excerpts from their stories & talk about the seedy side of fiction, the Jewishness of noir & the background behind their narratives. Midway through, the group is joined by Kenneth Wishnia, editor of the collection.
