I give you “Addendum: An Idlewind Podcast.” This is my side project to prepare myself to actually podcast like a real person, and I’m starting to feel good about it. Just disregard the first two episodes, but check out the third one (link below). I’m very excited to continue this development. It’s like getting your thought process back.
I’m so thrilled to get this going and along with the Talking Text podcast! I intend to use those two projects to complement whatever writing routines or process you already have set, and offer great ways to jumpstart your next creative project.
If you’d like me to recite/record your work, don’t hesitate to reach out! Poetry, flash fiction and short stories would be great at this time!

I'm mulling over the tracks to use for the theme of the show. I've been recording music since I was a kid, so I have a few recordings lying around that I could use. This one is quite old, but I like the noise it brings. There's a few more, we'll see what happens. Two …

In my haste to lay the groundwork for the podcast as the year comes to an end, I have been recording tests to see if it would be possible to do a video podcast version of Talking Text simultaneously. Video has been a big part of my life, and since I was an actor in …

Run Be brief But gather life At pleasant clicks Full But one and done.
It was my goal this year to start a podcast for writers. It would be easy to say it hasn't happened because of work, family, procrastination, etc. There's no excuse. I am sorry to say it has not happened because of my inability to time manage. I acknowledge this and now that it's out there …

With these eyelids smeared shut I squint to ease the throbbing void and color on the other side I have been gone much too long The people speak as if they swallowed microphones The people ramble as if laundry lists were all the rage Slumber short and sweet Meant to be so good to me …

I'm very optimistic no one will find me here here you can write a few things about sadness and hissing cassette tapes where the amber smiles reside and tomorrow's sunrise had yet to meet us at the horizon I write with certainty I won't be found I know this in my heart and slowing veins …
