About Us

My name is Spike DiMartino, and I've been writing, off and on, ever since my eighth grade English teacher told me that I did it well. In this podcast, I'll be reading from my novel, "Primary Tourist," which is about the link between the New Hampshire Primary and my life, and how mythology permeates the lives of everyone, from Presidential Wannabes to Wannabe Artistic Icons and everybody in between, and how Myth does its damnedest to shape truth, even when, hell, especially when you live in a nursing home which you don't have to be crazy to mistake for an asylum. I hope you enjoy it.

This episode contains chapters 10 and 11 of Spike DiMartino's book 'Primary Tourist'. In chapter 10, Spike talks about living in a nursing home (terrible), gets romantic advice from a friend (run!), and learns that his nephew is in the hospital (cancer). Then, in the next chapter, Spike encounters two presidential candidates: Wesley Clark and Vermin Supreme. We were able to track down a video of Spike's interaction with Wesley Clark, and there's a clip of it at the end of this episode. You can see the video at https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4658516/spike-asks-wesley-clark-question , or the video of the entire campaign rally that the clip is excerpted from at https://www.c-span.org/video/?180238-1/clark-campaign-rally .
