Welcome to Kurt Vonnegut Radio

“I’ve never been more forthright – or had more fun – in an interview.”

– Merve Emre, staff writer at The New Yorker

“I wish I could laugh AND cry in all my interviews like I did in our conversation.”

Stephanie Land, NYT-bestselling author of MAID

Like if Kurt Vonnegut hosted a podcast where he interviewed the great writers and thinkers of our time

My interview style is forthright and my guests know I am dialed into them and that I care and they reveal themselves in new and surprising ways. These intimate conversations are soulful, funny, weird, heartfelt, bracingly honest, and filled with true stories that can change your life. They changed mine.

You don’t have to pay anything to be a part of our community – I’m just glad to have you on board. Anybody who picks the free option will get at least one podcast episode + accompanying blog post each week.

But Kurt Vonnegut Radio is a listener-supported endeavor. And if you can afford it, your contribution makes it possible for me to keep this project going. So if you are able to contribute, please consider becoming a paid subscriber.

  • An annual subscription costs $50

  • Or you can pay $5 a month

  • You can also become a Founding Member for $150 a year—which would automatically make you my personal hero. I’d also offer you a Zoom consultation on your writing. Or help you write a query letter. However I can be of service to your writing journey.

And no matter what, thanks for being here. And welcome aboard.

I am super excited about our adventure.
