Episode 3: Samuel Snoek-Brown, Badass Women & Whiskey

 

featuring Tacoma-based author and educator Samuel Snoek-Brown. Sam is the author of the new short story collection There Is No Other Way to Worship Themthe Civil War novel Hagridden and short-fiction chapbooks Where There Is Ruin and Box Cutters. He also serves as production editor for Jersey Devil Press.

Pour yourself a glass of whiskey and listen-in as Sam and Christina get progressively sassy over bourbon and scotch. Sam admits his nerdiest habits, chats about bad-ass women in his life and gets real about tattoos. Three whiskeys later, we go down a literary rabbit hole you don’t want to miss (involving a vehement defense of Ozzy Ozbourne, fan-girling over James Franco Review and an introduction to “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Motherfucker at the Club” by Robert Lashley).
