Add to Calendar
Monday, August 12・7:00pm Doors・7:30pm Show
Come join hosts Mark Ames and John Dolan for the first-ever live taping of the Radio War Nerd podcast. There will be audience participation, and hours of socializing afterwards.
John Dolan, aka Gary Brecher, The War Nerd, is an epic poet and analyst of war. Hot of off last year's ground breaking translation of Homer's Iliad into prose that actually grabs you, he is now hawking his comically pitiful life story, read out loud like an epic ought to be: Pleasant Hell. There will be a reading as part of the show and you can buy it here: https://johndolan1.selz.com/item/pleasant-hell-by-john-dolan-audiobook
Mark Ames co-founded the eXile, the premier English language news source on Russia during a decade that is still the structuring absence of our world today. He also wrote Going Postal, the only book on gun rage incidents that puts them into the large American historical tradition from slave revolts to the Reaganism that is now so normalized people have forgotten what changed. He is the author of myriad pieces of critical investigative journalism.
