We clue you in on the best authors and musicians who are active on the interwebs: who’s real, who’s funny, who’s fake, who’s a train wreck, etc. Be sure to put your faves in the comments. And what is tickling our fancy this month. The team convinces me not to talk about copyright.
This summer is the anniversary of Woodstock so we revisit the 1960s – the good, the bad, and the ugly of the 1960s. Arguably the summer of love was 1967. Woodstock happened in 1969. August 15, 1969 to be precise but we have something else we want to talk about that week. We figure it is the middle of summer, why not go for it. A summer of love is better than a summer of something else. We welcome new podcaster Moon Beam. We get to the bottom of True Detective. This episode is dedicated to the memory of Stephen Gaskin.
