Posted onMarch 6, 2023|Comments Off on Talking Seuss with American Stories
To mark Dr. Seuss’s 119th birthday, I sat down with the kind folks — in this case Madisyn — at the Our American Stories podcast to trace the arc of Seuss’s life and work. If you’re so inclined, here’s about 30 minutes of me enthusing about Seuss — and Frank Capra and Chuck Jones and Bennett Cerf and so many others — and his astounding work and work ethic. I also seem to be doing a spot on Reuben Kincaid impression.
Coming up on Monday, I’ll be sitting down with the brilliant Denise Kiernan on her CRAFT: Authors in Conversation podcast, where we’ll talk over (virtual) cocktails about research, writing, and the general dark art of telling stories through histories and biography. Drinking may also be discussed.
The fun begins on Monday, October 25, at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET. Tune in! It’ll be good! We promise.
Didja remember I told you earlier this week that I’d be doing a podcast with the fine folks over at Assembly of Geeks? Huh, didja? Well, I did — and I have. I had a lot of fun talking with supergeek Scott Murray, both on and off microphone. He’s a geek who knows his stuff. And as promised, you can listen to the entire thing if you just follow this link on over to their website.
And one more reminder that I’ll be with the Maryland Ensemble Theater for The Last Hurrah on Sunday evening at 7 p.m. in Frederick, Maryland. Bring everyone you know. And throw stuff.
Two announcements that need a slight hurrah — or, at least, a Kermit arm flail.
First: for those of you in the Maryland/DC/Virginia area, I’ll be appearing live on stage with the Maryland Ensemble Theatre to take part in their LAST HURRAH comedy show. The fun starts this Sunday at 7:00 p.m. at the Maryland Ensemble Theatre, in the historic Francis Scott Key Hotel in downtown Frederick. I have no idea what I’m in for with this one — it’s a live show and podcast populated by stand up comedians and other masters of improv — but I’m looking forward to it. And believe me, I’m not even going to try to joke and make mit thuh funny, Lebowski — I’ll leave that to the seasoned professionals. But if you’re in the area on Sunday night and looking for some fun, come on in. And bring everybody you know. And even some people you don’t.
