Well, gang. This one was hard to record. But it had to be done. In this awkward “special” episode of READING TO STRANGERS I respond to the news that I’ve been publicly banned from THE HORROR SHOW WITH BRIAN KEENE podcast (which I predicted would happen, here.)
Apparently the correct way to prove that censorship and witch hunting isn’t present in your literary community is to witch hunt and censor any voice of dissent.
If you know me at all, then you know I can’t just let something like that hang in the air.
So, reluctantly, I recorded a podcast as my end of what should have been a phone conversation between Brian and I to discuss our differing points of view on publicly calling out authors accused of crimes before they’ve had a chance to go before our justice system (or more often without any attempt to have them arrested at all.)
But instead of calling me on the phone like an adult, Brian chose to do this. So yeah. Here’s my response. Enjoy, I guess.
Gang! Last night, Mike Syxx from Dreadcentral.com hit up the Strange One and asked him to do a quick 20 minute interview for the website. What started off as a quick phone call ended up being an epic 3 hour long discussion about first amendment rights, the upcoming election, how the PC police have ruined the entertainment industry and much, much more!
The first part of the interview, the first TWO HOURS is up on Mike’s Youtube channel, while the final hour, when they finally get around to discussing Kevin’s decade-long career, has been posted on the official DreadCentral.com Youtube channel.
Check out both of those interviews below and let us know what you think!
