Listen to Episode 1:

Fuck Your Fucking Memoir In Its Fucking Face

For our first episode, we looked at memoirs and tried to find something redeeming in this genre that infatuates so many people— and infuriates us. We give a listen to the 13/7/11 episode of Talk of the Nation where a half a dozen people called in to talk about their memoirs of abuse; we comment upon the comments provided by 25/2/10 Think Out Loud and– most importantly –sat down and got shitfaced with the poet Tommy Gaffney (author of Three Beers From Oblivion and Whiskey Days) to discuss the memoir he is working on.
