Smart Podcast, Trashy Books: 492. Squeeing About Fandoms and Feels with Olivia Dade
My guest this week is Olivia Dade! We had such a good time talking about fan supercuts, watching shows through gifsets, Game of Thrones spoilers, writing characters with ADHD and learning disabilities. Highlight: we discover a vintage ship we have in common and we exclaim at each other.
Kingdom of Thirst: Episode 67: Bodacious Booksellers: New Year Who Dis
In this second part to the (almost unlistenable) Bodacious Bookseller episodes, booksellers Abigail, Kat, and Ali attempt to break down their favorite books of 2021. As you might guess, things don’t go according to plan. Discussion includes CONSORT’S GLORY, spuds, VE Schwab Supremacy, stomach distress, and the loudest taco restaurant in the world.
First Cup of Coffee with Jeffe Kennedy: December 31, 2021
My final installment on tracking the metrics of your creative work. If you track ad sales numbers, why not the fundamental work that makes the rest possible. As promised, I give a summary of my own metrics.
First Cup of Coffee – January 3, 2022: What we can learn from population biology on strategizing our writing careers, why there’s so much push to track ad spend and sales but not investigating our own creative process, and a big F**K OFF to people who say “stay in your lane.”
First Cup of Coffee – January 6, 2022: What I’ve been doing this week to improve my concentration and return to my previous wordcount output – and other thoughts on doomscrolling, the attention economy, and choosing the happy.

On Episode 175, Alli and her guests — the hosts of the Overdue podcast — kick off a new year and the fourth-annual Manuary with a conversation about The Story of Dr. Dolittle, which was written by Hugh Lofting and originally published in 1920. And if you thought the Dr. Dolittle universe was all about talking animals, you’re very mistaken! In fact, the book inspires discussions about everything from animal personhood and colonialism to socialism and the various ways talking animals are portrayed on-screen.
