Judge John Hodgman Episode 40: The Abuse of Flower Power

| 7 comments

Julienne and Emily are neighbors, co-workers and romantically involved. They both have a live/work spaces set in urban surroundings that needed a little touch of flora.

Julienne wants to add the Mexican Daisy which she prefers because of its scent and simple beauty. Emily, not fond of the daisy or its odor at all, has refused to come over to Julienne's if the daisy is planted.

Will Julienne need to create a daisy-free habitat? Will Emily have to wake up and smell the flowers? It's the war of the roses that only one man can decide!

Beaton's self portrait.

Guests: 
Kate Beaton

Kate Beaton joins us on The Sound Of Young America to talk about her webcomic, Hark! a Vagrant. Her comic mines everything from Nancy Drew to obscure Canadian explorers for inspiration. Political figures and literary characters are re-imagined and skewered as petulant children, jaded superheroes and Victorian dude-watchers, accented by a very expressive drawing style.

We talk about building an audience online, Kate's own favorite comics and what gives her inspiration.

Her comics have recently been collected into a book, also called Hark! A Vagrant.

Jeanne Darst, Author of Fiction Ruined My Family: Interview on The Sound of Young America

Jeanne Darst

Jeanne Darst is a writer and performer who recently published a memoir of her family, alcoholism, creativity, and coming to a point of actually making your thing. It's called Fiction Ruined My Family.

Jeanne grew up in a literary family whose description conjures up images of cocktail parties where brilliant creative minds are brushing up against one another. Her father aspired to literati status, so much so that reading popular fiction in his household constituted rebellion.

The part of their glamorous writing life that was missing? The actual writing, which was often overshadowed by alcoholism.

Jeanne talks to us about beginning a life of writing, acting and producing modeled on her family's behavior -- before realizing that being a functioning member of society and being an inspired creative person were not mutually exclusive.

Judge John Hodgman Episode 39: Slash-Friction

| 13 comments

While Bryan was compiling a comprehensive list of the top 100 horror movies the issue arose of what shared characteristics all the movies in the genre must have.

Bryan says that the content is king and what matters most is what takes place with the characters themselves. His friend Jay, whose help was enlisted for the compilation, maintains that it’s the director’s intent for audience reaction that holds sway.

Who will be tricked and who gets treated on this thriller of a case for Judge John Hodgman!
