We're ditching our usual format today to bring you holiday-themed stories from two of our favorite guests, Shannon Cason and Stephen Markley.
Shannon Cason is the Moth Chicago Grandslam Champion. You can find him at live lit events all over Chicago (check out shannoncason.com for a listing of all his upcoming appearances), including Do Not Submit, which he co-hosts with Scott Whitehair. Shannon came by to share a story about waking up to bad news on Christmas morning.
Stephen Markley is author of the memoir Publish This Book: The Unbelievable True Story of How I Wrote, Sold, and Published This Very Book and the short e-book The Great Dysmorphia: an Epistemological View of Ingesting Hallucinogenic Mushrooms at a 2012 Republican Presidential Debate. He also writes an always-observant, often-hilarious opinion column for the Chicago RedEye. In this episode, Stephen tells us how he really feels about Christmas music.
Also - a big thank you to everyone who has helped make 2012 a successfu
