Spotlight: The Fight in Russia

Spotlight Episode: GLBT oppression in Russia. This episode focuses on Vladislav Slavskiy who was a queer activist in his native Russia and chose to tell his story while the world media was focused on his home town of Sochi during the Olympic Games last year (2014). While the story is a harrowing one, for Vlad, it is one of hope as well.

Words and Errata – Ep 003

On deck this ep-

Just completed recording our 3M/Musketeers podcast with a very warm and engaging author – Brandon Witt.

I muse over my thoughts after coming out of that recording session with:

1) Fear of the mic
2) Author realities vs. imagination in our works
3) Reviews (the bane of every author- a necessary evil)
4) Struggles with World Building as an author
5) Gay men’s realities and fiction writing about us
6) Dark Themes in Gay Fiction
7) The tone and voice our podcast is finding one ep to the next

9) My semi-autobiography (pits and pratfalls) Boyhood of a Contrarian Nature
