Episode 162 is here with Raheem Hosseini. Raheem is an associate editor and writer for Sacramento News and Review.
In this episode Raheem and I chat about the “Great Culling of Papers and Material and Weird Stains”, otherwise known as Desk Hoarding; the horror hearing people using baby talk with animals; the influence that Peter Parker had on a young a Raheem; the appeal of journalism’s lack of preciousness when it comes to writing; how sarcasm lead to his first break in journalism; the tough lessons learned at his first job as a journalist; our theories on why some people are just plain crappy human beings; the danger in the lack of “nutritional value” of cable news; and if America is stuck in some sort of horrible Groundhog Day.
Note: Normally the guest will send me a few photos to attach to the episode. I did not receive any photos at the time the episode went up, so I attached some photos of my dogs and cat.
