Audio at: “Letters from Russia” discussion on “Write Now!” radio show
DJ Snailmail: Our guest tonight for “Write Now, The Art & Action of Letter writing” is a letter-writer of sorts and a storyteller Dave Olson out of Vancouver, British Columbia. Dave, can you tell me about the two websites that I visited there? Can you talk about those two; I’m not sure, the podcast one and the other one?
Dave: Sure. Well, I do a whole bunch of different writing and creative projects and uncleweed.net (note: now daveostory.com) is my home for all my creative arts and crafts I make, whether it be my writing projects or academic projects, and then I do a bunch of podcasts.
I do a literary podcast called, Postcards from Gravelly Beach – you can subscribe to it in iTunes. It’s just like a little audio show I make that I send out from time to time, that’s just me doing some reading in a variety of locations and mixing up with the music.
DJ Snailmail: It was very cool I actually listened to your London podcast last night. Your podcast from London, that was very good.
Dave: Nice. I have a little portable recorder and I do a lot of travelling. So, I just go on long meandering strolls and love to find places where things were originally written. I kind of put in a little context like I did on early morning Jack Kerouac scroll in San Francisco one time where I found places from San Francisco Blues specifically on location and in situ. I love my arts and crafts.
