Back in December last year, Kyle Coma-Thompson and I recorded a podcast episode for Full Stop. I was dialling in from a hotel room in Melbourne, Kyle from his home in Louisville, morning where I was, evening where he was. We were recording the episode to talk about 926 Years – the book we co-authored for Joshua Rothes’ Sublunary Editions, due out in January 2020.
The invitation from Full Stop to be on the podcast was a thrill to receive for a few reasons: firstly, talking about our new little book would be a delight; secondly, it was partly through Full Stop that Kyle and I originally connected; and finally, Kyle and I had not only never met but we had also never spoken before. The writing and all of our many exchanges over a few years took place strictly via email – chatting with Kyle after all that time was a very exciting prospect.
I think you’ll understand me when I say: that seems like a lifetime ago. After the recording, I met my partner for coffee and cake in a busy inner-city cafe, still very much buzzing from my chat with Kyle. Lordy, life seemed so simple back then.
So, it was a pleasant surprise to see the podcast appear, now on the Full Stop Patreon page, and soon for public consumption. If you’re so inclined, you can sign up to support Full Stop and listen to the episode. Otherwise, I will post an update when the podcast is live to the public.
