Episode 49 - Calliope Pettis

The seat across the from the Operator desk is filled this week by Calliope Pettis, a songwriter and performer from the old Montevallo days who has come into her own since those Eclipse Open Mic nights. To recap after a joint gig at Tropicaleo in Birmingham, and in preparation for her appearance at Fork and Spoon Recordings in Panama City Beach, we sat down and had a vibrant chat about music, creativity, and breaking into new expressive territory.

Episode 41 - Alesha Dawson of Screen Door Review

The heat death swinging is all over and we return! There might be flies on you but there ain't no files that ain't backed up now so we can continue on the road of vantage seeking. My guest this week is a friend and former professor from my days in Montevallo, Alesha Dawson, who has gathered her own forces of words to bring forth the Screen Door Review, a quarterly compendium of Southern queer voices. We speak about medieval literature, the collegiate system, functions of learning, and how words have speakable power.

Episode 40 - Wess Gregg of Sanctum Tattoos and Comics

We're back! I am your unread porter abiding over a rack. The socialist backspace corrects a thrust across each mortal sequel. The nearby trolley apologizes across a concatenate beast. Oh, how our shame pauses beside the melody!
You are returning to reenter the Earth Hotel as if you ever left.
