Found Vollmann interview podcast


I just found this W.T. Vollmann interview in the “Bat Segundo” podcast. I was really excited at first, but after a listen I have to say it’s just OK. The intro to this podcast is completely unlistenable and I advise any interested to skip in a half a minute or so, or turn down the volume during “loading”. Further, if I’m ever caught speaking in such an inane and campy way in my own podcast for such a period of time, I urge anyone who has ever enjoyed, been amused or enlightened by, anything I have ever said, to kill me. This is a completely serious request. I can handle clanking plates in the background, it’s not nearly as annoying…

I don’t know how these people get access to the interviews subjects they do, but there are also T.C. Boyle, Amy Sedaris and David Lynch on the list.

    No, “dude”, darken down. I admit jealously about having a chance to interview Vollmann. As I listened, the sort of questions I would have asked kept running through my head – things of a more personal nature he might not have been as willing to answer. The actual interview bit was fine, but save that camp shit intro for a Rip Taylor interview. It’s inane.
