Comedian and Novelist Jim Hodgson–Episode 63–September 30 2015

On episode 63 of the WRITER 2.0 Podcast I spoke with novelist, satirist, and extreme athlete Jim Hodgson.

We discussed:

  • whether you have to be good looking to make it in music;
  • how he got a deal to write his humorous romance, HEARTS RACING;
  • the funniest things about Atlanta;
  • David Sedaris in Costco;
  • the lowest point in his Iron Man training;
  • what it’s like “suffering from high self esteem.”

Plus, on “Today in Writing”–Rumi’s birthday.

About our Guest:

He’s the founder and editor of The Atlanta Banana, a satirical newspaper. He’s worked as a standup comic and as a sketch writer for Sketchworks. His work has been published in Georgia Music Magazine, Creative Loafing, The Art of Manliness, Dirge Magazine,,,, and others.
