Every year has to end, and 2017 is no exception. It was a garbage year dominated by a garbage man, and I'm happy to report that my good friends Adam Greenfield and Gene Morgan were here to help me bid it a fond farewell.
Adam is the author of the upcoming novel Circa, due out in August 2018, and Gene is the founder and CEO of HTMLGiant.
Happy New Year, everyone! Thanks for listening.

In today's monologue, I respond to listener mail involving death, the illusion of death, and the oneness of all that is. And also a surprise letter from a decorated professional basketball coach.

Erin is her literary agent at Dunow, Carlson, and Lerner; she helped shepherd the book to publication. (She is also my literary agent.)
In today's monologue, I read some listener mail and talk about dogs.
