It’s an Ian extravaganza! Ian opens the show with the spectacular return of Peter Geye, most recently the author of novel Ski Jumpers, followed by a discussion with Curtis DeBerg about his illustrated memoir Traveling the World with Hemingway.
Ian Graham Leask takes center stage this week, interviewing David Backes about editing A Private Wilderness: The Journals of Sigurd F. Olson. After the break, Leask is joined by Cristen Hemingway Jaynes, short-fiction author and great-granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway himself.

Ian starts off the show, joined by writer John Medieros, by diving into a conversation about the pandemic that swept the world before COVID: the HIV-AIDS crisis. Medeiros and his identical twin brother participated in a gene therapy study in which the HIV-positive twin was infused with billions of genes from the HIV-negative twin, as detailed in his memoir, Self, Divided.
After the break, Liz brings out her music chops and welcomes Bill Schnee on air to discuss his fascinating experiences doing audio production and engineering for such brilliant minds as John Lennon and Ringo, Whitney Houston, Barbara Streisand, and many more. These magic yarns and more can be found in his new book Chairman at the Board.
