Tim Cahill and his dinner conversation with Hunter S. Thompson

EThat time author Tim Cahill and Hunter S. Thompson tested a new cocaine theory at dinner: Many are the at-dinner with Hunter stories. But, few match the time in San Francisco when the Good Doctor was working with Rolling Stone (still headquartered in San Francisco in those days) and fellow Rolling Stone writer Tim Cahill (future founding editor of Outside Magazine and one of America's best adventure/travel writers) ushered him into a fancy Mexican restaurant. Our own Curtis Robinson interviews Tim Cahill about when Hunter had this odd idea about how better to consume cocaine... Spoiler alert: every table is a lab if you use it right.

Author Matt Moseley on his book "Dear Dr. Thompson"

EMurder, he wrote... NOT In this episode, author and communications strategy guru Matt Moseley talks to Curtis Robinson about that time Hunter shamed the Colorado justice system into releasing a woman from a life-without-parole murder sentence. And Moseley should know, his "Dear Dr. Thompson" book was about that effort, and of course the beloved Wayne Ewing film "Free Lisl" is a great telling of the story. The case, and one of the several laws Hunter truly hated, are still making headlines, as with a January story in the Colorado Sun newspaper Colorado poised to revisit murder law that can send people to prison for life -- even when they didn’t kill anyone.

ECasting Director Margery Simkin In this episode, the Hunter-Gatherers, Curtis Robinson and Dan Dunn, speak with Margery Simkin, the legendary Hollywood casting director, about her work on Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, how Johnny Depp got that break-through role on 21 Jump Street and how a future Spiderman came to be in the Vegas film.

Stephen Nemeth, Rhino Films

EKNOWING THE FUTURE IS EASY, KNOWING THE TIMETABLE IS HARD Hunter-Gatherer, Stephen Nemeth of Rhino Films, along with Dan Dunn and Curtis Robinson, discuss how Hunter S.

An Interview with Carl Hulse of The New York Times

EThe HST Legacy in DC A special treat this episode: joining Danny Dunn and Curtis Robinson is Carl Hulse, New York Times chief Washington correspondent and author of "Confirmation Bias: Inside Washington's War Over the Supreme Court, from Scalia's Death to Justice Kavanaugh" talks about how Hunter S. Thompson's "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail in '72" set him on a path to journalism. While he didn't actually know the Doctor, he certainly is among those legacy folks who, like Curtis, can credit (or blame) Hunter for heading into newspapers. At great personal risk and expense, we recorded Carl at the famous HST touchstone Hotel Jerome over President's Day weekend in Aspen, Colorado.

Hunter-Gatherers Interview: John Conyers III

EBetter Than Sax: Let's Talk Politics The story of HST is, of course, the ongoing story of American politics. So why not engage a bit of Democratic party royalty to talk about today's electoral environment? Dan Dunn (The Imbiber)and Curtis Robinson chat with John Conyers III, the son of the late John Conyers Jr., who was the longest-serving African-American in the U.S. Congress (the congressman died in 2019 at the age of 90).

Hunter-Gatherers: Ray Breslin on the Campaign Trail '72

EABOUT THAT MUSKIE ATTACK...We take the time machine back to the 70s, to Florida and the Sen. Ed Muskie presidential campaign aboard his Sunshine Express. Curtis Robinson interviews famed BBC cameraman Ray Breslin, who was there and filmed “Hunter” attacking the candidate. It’s a famous incident HST noted often, but this shows just how sure the press was that it was him, not a prankster. More on that later in another story.

Hunter-Gatherers: Margaret A. Harrell

EWhat was HST like as a first-time author? Margaret Harrell was Hunter S. Thompson's trusted copy editor for his first book, "Hells Angels," published by Random House in 1967. During that time, she was the assistant editor to Jim Silverman (at Random House)and worked on the books of several renown authors, including John Irving, Richard Farina, Chet Huntley(of The Huntley-Brinkley Report)and Supreme Court First Amendment lawyer Cy Rembar(who wrote "The End of Obscenity: The Trials of Lady Chatterley," "Tropic of Cancer" and "Fanny Hill" by the lawyer who defended them). A writer herself, she has memorialized her relationship with Hunter and a couple of other male writers in the first two of her four-volume memoir, entitled "Keep This Quiet." She is currently working in collaboration with Ron Whitehead on an upcoming illustrated book, entitled "Hunter Thompson's Hells Angels: Writers' & Editors, Romance & Trouble," which will reprint and contextualize the letters between Harrell and Thompson.

Hunter-Gatherers: Curtis Robinson – A Fan's Note

EA Fan’s Note The next time H-G host Curtis Robinson is asked how he met Hunter, he’ll finally be able to say, “uh, it’s on the podcast site.” The story illustrates that nobody was ever safe from that HST memory. Plus, some program notes of interest for real-time listeners (1-12-20) and a shout out to a legendary sheriff.

Hunter-Gatherers: Readings – Fear & Loathing at the Superbowl

EIt's NFL playoff time, and given that HST's short suicide note found time to lament the end of football season, our attention turns to Fear & Loathing at the Super Bowl, Hunter's screed about SB8, played in Houston. Producer Curtis Robinson recalls reading the piece with the Doctor at Owl Farm, calling it a link to later "Hey Rube" efforts. CR says this is Hunter at his best, especially when it came to his knowledge of the Bible – and we even explain the cultural reverence to "Mr. Natural" and a shout-out to a friendly NFL owner. And remember folks, there's always next season... until, you know, there's not.
