JOMAD 3: Eat Pray Bike

September 4th, 2011

Our guest is the director of the Emerging Writers’ Festival, Lisa Dempster! We discuss: free food, Pigeons Projects, writing what you (don’t?) know, the importance of writers’ festivals, sexy John Marsden books, entering the safe zone with DH Lawrence, dreamy Tobias from Animorphs and the adventurous bike love trilogy.


JOMAD 2: Space Pocahontas

August 21st, 2011

This episode we chat to almost-Mexican writer Sam Rutter. We talk about Ibiza super clubs, Roberto Bolaño’s hard knocks (to the face), reading long books, writing Australian vernacular, the places we like to read, space Pocahontas and pre-ordering Tyra Banks’ Modelland in hardback.


JOMAD 1: The First One

August 6th, 2011

Our very first podcast. Recorded rough and raw. We’re joined by former Voiceworks poetry editor, bookseller and editing student Jodie Kinnersley. We talk about the origins of the podcast, trashy books, karaoke high school reunions and how Jojo doesn’t know podcast etiquette.

Thanks for checking out our website, interested party! We are working super hard on making all this happen, but it’ll still be a little while before we record and upload our first podcast. Get excited for something in maybe the second week of August?

In the intervening time, why not tell your friends to get excited too, or talk to us (who are really excited) on twitter and facebook, email us, or leave a comment here. I think we’re already prepared to listen to suggestions about what to talk about on the show.

Talk to and at you very soon.
