Check out Episode 9 of our podcast, which we’ve joyously entitled “Sex, Rap, and Basketball.”

This latest show contains five gems from June, which are:

  • Jeff Weiss reading an excerpt on 2Pac’s fashion aesthetics from his book with Evan McGarvey 2Pac vs. Biggie: An Illustrated History of Rap’s Greatest Battle.
  • Steph Opitz's recitation of a birds and the bees-themed Pitch Perfect medley from last month’s Recital.
  • Jennifer Baumgardner on shame, pride, and the bisexuals that walk among us, from Shameless: Queer Ladies Pride Reading.
  • An open letter from NY Times contributor/Knicks superfan Robert Silverman asking if he can coach the team, read from nonfiction compilation We’ll Always Have Linsanity: Strange Takes on the Strangest Season in Knicks History.
  • Excerpts from The Audacious Debut, a conversation between authors Bill Cheng (Southern Cross the Dog) and Derek Palacio (How to Shake the Other Man) on the subject of beginnings, audacity, and more.

As always, thank you for listening, and please subscribe via Soundcloud, RSS or iTunes and rate us lots of stars if you like it!
