82 - Sean Kilpatrick
I'm very excited about this podcast. In a lot of ways, it was a cathartic release.
When I asked Sean Kilpatrick to be on the show, I did so because I wanted to get to the bottom of his bizarre, intuitive, surrealistic writing. I didn't (and still mostly don't) understand it, but I felt compelled by it and drawn to it. And we talk about that.
But I was also really, really pissed off, and I met the exact person I needed to meet at the exact time. He helped me, and I hoped I helped him, and by listening, maybe we can help you, too. We rip into the entire literary establishment, self-important writers, learning how to help in small ways, keeping moral panic away from the arts, Sean growing up getting arrested in Detroit, and general misanthropy. I also learned about a lot of obscure, experimental books that I'd never heard of before, Alan Clarke films, loving mean-spirited art, Sean's headspace when he wrote each of his books, why mother! made him quit writing movie reviews, Captain America's dick, and not taking the internet too seriously.
This is a real motherfucker of a podcast. Enjoy.
