Check it out - Lucky Man gets podcasted.

TBWCYL, Inc. and Lucky Man author Ben Tanzer sat down with the very attractive and sentient Jason Pettus of CCLaP last night at Old Town Ale House for our first ever podcast. We are hoping Jason found the experience as much fun as we did and we hope you will take a listen here, or below. Many thanks Jason, the next round is on us.

Great interview! But will you finish the Wade Boggs metaphor that got cut off because I got really excited when you said "It's like Wade Boggs—" . . . Seriously.

Many thanks, to not just you though we appreciate your making the time to listen, but Jason as well, it was much fun. Now, we know your serious, seriously, so here it goes. We love all things Wade, the hits, the mustache, the Hair Club for Men commercials, the adultery, all of it, but our point was going to be that like many athletes he was a man fraught with superstitions, and one of them was that he had to have chicken for dinner on the day of a game, and that's cool, but we don't have time for that when we write, no time for superstition, no perfect settings, or time of day, we don't have to eat ham first, or be in the right room, we just write, we must write, and we must do it when we are able to, whenever, and however that is, and not when things are perfect. So, there you go, is that actually interesting, or possibly just so in our head?

Not only interesting but spot on. Although to be honest, I kind of got sick of Wade Boggs making every All-Star game at third base even if he was batting like .190 at mid-season. Growing up, for some reason, his omnipresence at ever All-Star game really got on my nerves.

Thanks again, glad you liked it, though you know, for the record, we're not exactly Wade Boggs fans, we're all about Craig Nettles.

I'd adopt you too, Ben, given the chance...

We can totally arrange that, of course you do have to adopt the whole staff here at TBWCYL, Inc., as well as Pete Anderson our pro bono publicist. Is that cool with you?
