Find your smile and live, laugh, love alongside a community of content addicts who share your interest in emotional content. You may know me from my sports writing, culture writing, legal history courses, or the 2.5 years I spent co-hosting (and eventually just hosting) the What’s Left? podcast.
The best content, the best words
Regardless of how you discovered the Internet’s semi-anonymous “King of Content,” you’ll find something here that tickles your fancy or your funny bone. My top content priorities are:
Interviews with people about their jobs, as well as remastered/recut “The Work of…” episodes from What’s Left? People enjoyed these, and that’s going to constitute the bulk of the audio content here.
Solo episodes in the form of lectures, jeremiads, &c. Topics include legal history, cultural history, strength, fitness, enhanced bodies, wrestling, MMA, literary fiction, and more. I realize the hoary dictum is “not many, but well,” but I’ve always been more of a fox than a hedgehog. I’ll also be recutting and reposting some of my favorite solo episodes from What’s Left?
Revised versions of my written work, from both the present and the past. There are instances when my writing becomes uneditable (due to lack of final cut/CMS access) following a sale, leading to my loss of control over the content. Considering that I’ve sold over 1000 pieces since 2012, this has happened frequently. I’m eager to get these back.
Vlogs in which I shoot the breeze or embark on some sort of Dennis Miller-esque rant.
