Something's burning, baby!

Jason welcomes Vancouver's Poet Laureate for a ramble about Emily of New Moon, writing into fear & anxiety, concrete corpses in the living room, goth trenchcoats, werewolves draped in mourning, having some feelings & a trombone, reading to dogs, & the real answer to the question "How do I get published?"

Jason welcomes Lorna Crozier for a gab & a yak about stone angels, that shivery sense good writing gives you, being corny & earnest, unwrapping your brain, just what it is about cats anyway, Kerouac in Vernon, riding the poem wherever it wants to go, and how, by God, there is light. And then Lorna makes Jason cry. Music by savage hunk DJ Max in Tokyo, artwork by Wayne Emde, & help with the intro from handsome Joe Emde.
