EPISODE SEVENTY-THREE: a chat with eric jerome dickey

A note from Jeanette: So guys...mea culpa, this show should have been out a couple of weeks ago, but I got slammed with life, which delayed the editing. So some of the things discussed herein are old news, but our takes are still pretty fresh, so yanno, balance. ;-)Today's show is pretty special. If you have been rocking with us from the beginning, you'll remember our very first episode was about the books of one Eric Jerome Dickey. Well friends, our little show has come full circle because we were afforded the opportunity to have a conversation with Mr. Dickey. We played it cool, but we were pretty excited! Hope you enjoy listening.News stories discussed in the show:FOLD Human Lit Library:http://thefoldcanada.org/Pulitzer Winners:http://www.pulitzer.org/news/announcement-2018-pulitzer-prize-winnersGSK Killer Caught:https://www.forbes.com/sites/michellefabio/2018/04/25/true-crime-author-michelle-mcnamaras-legacy-sealed-with-arrest-in-golden-state-killer-case/#78495d32378a8 Books You...
