In this episode we talk about Lee Matthew Goldberg’s new book, Vanish Me,  90’s grunge music, Heathers, Pete Davidson, SNL, public transit, his next projects, and what it's like to have your book optioned. 

Fun fact: this was recorded before the Russian/Ukraine War. Ignore our prediction that the extreme negative world events in our lifetime are slowly coming to an end and won't pop back up until global warming kills us all…

Fun fact #2: this is the last podcast I recorded before I had sinus surgery. So there is a little heavy breathing on my end 😂
