In which a podcast muddles through lockdown with the incontrovertible Paul Tremblay. In this week’s show, Kaaron revisits a macabre swimming hole, Joseph gets down with the kids, and Aaron sobs into his keyboard. Paul shares his first art love, his passion for first-person assholes, and the inspiration for his new novel, The Pallbearers’ Club. We learn about Meatloaf’s broken leg, crowd-surfing possums, and the sartorial habits of fighting fish. Existential revelations about buried mixtapes are unearthed. Bob Mould won’t go out for pizza. Paul writes himself into a story. Everyone steals Paul’s identity.

  • William Kennedy O’Toole’s Confederacy of Dunces
  • Sarah Levine’s Treasure Island!!!
  • Shirley Barrett’s The Bus On Thursday
  • The Jeffrey Ford story about a roadside museum is called “Word Doll,” from his 2016 collection A Natural History of Hell.
  • The Scorpions album after Love At First Sting is Savage Amusement.
