Episode 130: Janna Marlies

Janna Marlies, the publisher and editor of Under the Gum Tree, stopped by to chat for Episode 130.

Janna and I chat about being an alliterative couple; the complicated plots while playing GI Joe; what led to her creating the literary magazine “Under the Gum Tree”; finding out that the strict religious upbringing you experienced is nothing compared to other parts of the country; the debate over “Creative Nonfiction”; and treating your work, and the work of others, with respect.
