Episode 05: Mystical Realm of Fantasy Macaroni

This week, in the wake of Ed and John's weekend of middle-aged recreation in Montana, they discuss movies made from novels and novels made from movies, the non-domination of literature as a narrative form, the mating call of Martha Stewart, the unsuitability of macaroni and cheese as competition food, and travel snacking. They also welcome guest poet Jon Backmann, an MFA candidate in creative writing at the University of Montana. Follow links to CutBank Magazine, the Oxford Saloon, Verlyn Klinkenborg's article on writerly intention, Richard Hugo's grave, and Geoff Dyer's Zona.
