Music Gossiping On The Danko Jones Podcast

Danko Jones podcast

Danko Jones podcast

One of my favourite thing I worked on this year was helping edit international rock ‘n’ roll star Danko Jones’ new book I’ve Got Something To Say.

To help promote said book Danko had me on his long-running podcast in the fall.

We didn’t actually do much “promotion” of the book, but we sure had a time gossiping and light trash talking all sorts of things music.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

The Risky Fuel household is particularly pro-John le Carré and pretty much support all the author does while writing about spies with father issues who constantly get betrayed by the institutions they served.

Sarah argues these broken men, full of feelings, represent a better vision for masculinity than the traditional dude hero type.

She explained why in an essay for Electric Lit.
