  1. Carry On: More with the Maker Minipod episode 1

    I have been working on getting more folks recorded over the last few weeks, and I wanted to share with you a part of the newsletter experience as I move forward. I get straight to business when interviewing my guests, but after the Q&A I am able to simply talk to them. This small talk might be about the soft goods industry. Or, like this episode of More With The Maker, I talk with Mark Dwight from Rickshaw Bagworks about notebooks, which is something that I am fairly passionate about through Nock Co.

  2. A Fable by Lawrence Joseph

    Great bronze doors of Trinity Church, hours told by the sounds of the bells. A red

    tugboat pushes a red-and-gold barge into the Narrows. A bench in the shadows

    on a pier in the Hudson. The café on Cornelia Street, the music,

    now, whose voice might that be? Diffuse, invisible, energy. The flow of data

    since the attacks has surged. Technocapital, permanently, digitally,

    semioticized, virtually unlimited in freedom and power, taking

    billions of bodies on the planet with it. The future, the past, cosmogonies,

    the void are in whose vision? Ever-deepening and ravenous

    cruelty, viciousness, annihilation are defended and worshipped.

    But is there a more beautiful city—parts of it, anyway? Another path to the harbor,

    the border between sea and land fluctuating, a line, a curve. Peck Slip

    to Water Street, to Front Street, to Pine, to Coenties Slip, to Pearl,

    to Stone Street, to Exchange Place, the light in majestic degrees.

    This is a fable. A final nail is driven in. The Recording Angel

    completes the exactest chronicle. Blake, with blazing eyes, loves

    issues of eternal time. Gauguin puts a final green on the canvas

    of the “Self-Portrait with Yellow Christ,” to complicate the idea.

  4. A Young Bob Dylan Talks And Plays On “The Studs Terkel Program”(1963)

    Two Legends Together! In the spring of 1963 Studs Terkel introduced Chicago radio listeners to an up-and-coming musician, not yet 22 years old, "a young folk poet who you might say looks like Huckleberry Finn, if he lived in the 20th century. His name is Bob Dylan." Dylan had just finished recording the songs for his second album, "The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan", when he traveled from New York to Chicago to play a gig at a little place partly owned by his manager, Albert Grossman, called "The Bear Club". The next day he went to the WFMT studios for the hour-long appearance on "The Studs Terkel Program". Things were moving fast in Dylan’s life at that time. He was just emerging as a major songwriter. His debut album from the year before, Bob Dylan, was made up mostly of other people’s songs. The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, which was finished but hadn’t yet been released, contained almost all original material, including several songs that would become classics, like "Blowin’ in the Wind," "Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right" and "A Hard Rain’s a Gonna Fall." Within a few months Dylan would make his debut at the Newport Folk Festival and perform at the historic March on Washington. But when Dylan visited WFMT, it’s likely that many of Terkel’s listeners had never heard of him. In the recorded broadcast he plays the following songs: 1) Farewell 2) A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall …

  5. If you like John Roderick or Roderick on the Line… - the ROCKS GLASS

    If you like John Roderick or Roderick on the Line (and let’s be real… if you’re on Tumblr, you do), then you’ll love listening to our time with Sir John himself.

    Hell of a way to leave for vacation.

    Here we are: The last episode before our hiatus. We certainly couldn’t have had a better guest to share with you than our friend John Roderick.

    In this episode we discuss Jeremy’s encroaching Kaczynski-ism (minus the pipe bombs), digging holes with your boots, babies, writing, David Rees’s insistence that we all get ripped in 2015 and challenge coins. It’s a lot to leave you with.

    That said: Farewell for a bit. We will return, rested and ready, in late June 2015. Until then, listen to old episodes, think of new topics, questions and guests for us to have on the show and definitely spend some time getting to know the other shows on We’ll see you soon.

    The idea was given to me by Mike Hurley by fame. So if people find the 17,000 word article too long to read, now you can listen with a variable speed whatever your podcast app of choice may be.

  10. Side Hustles, Getting Things Done and Creativity with Austin Kleon - Stacking Benjamins

    In the Inc. piece about our show, we give credit to the inspiration for “the basement”….Austin Kleon. We admitted that we stole all of these ideas….and made them our own. We’re not ashamed…..we’re very, very proud.

    That’s why I’m so excited to announce that the designer who’s the inspiration for this podcast, Austin Kleon, today comes down and sits on beanbag chairs and talks creativity and organization with us. Are side hustles a good idea? Is organization good for creativity? What do David Allen, the concept of “flow” and achieving more have in common? Austin’s got it covered.

    Austin Kleon working at his desk.

    ….but of course, that’s not all. PK is also here and he’s all about wealth and income. Is the person who earns the most money the person who’s wealthiest? We’ll find out.

    Our headlines include retirement plan leakage….we review the new Disney film McFarland USA….and much more!
