The JDO Show

Brash, honest conversations with indie writers and artists about anything and everything

53 - J.S. Breukelaar

March 18th, 2017

One of the best prose stylists in the game right now stopped by to talk about her new novel Alethia, which is out this Friday! We talk Australia, workshops, dogs, the new book, and how you have to go through an emotional wringer to get to the good stuff.


52 - David Bowles

March 9th, 2017

Chupacabra Vengeance by David Bowles is now available in paperback and Kindle! To celebrate, I had David on the show. This is one of my favorites: we talk Mexican culture, appropriation, political correctness, writing routines, and the personal experiences that broke us down and built us back up (ie "the quest to be good"). I hope you enjoy this one!

You can get Chupacabra Vengeance here!


51 - Self-Publishing

March 7th, 2017

I ramble for about thirty minutes on the topic of self-publishing. I outline my philosophy here so I can have a reference point for my thoughts and feelings on the topic, so I never have to discuss it online ever again.


50 - Mark Jaskowski

March 6th, 2017

Mark came on to talk about Marxism, Florida, and his new novel The Heartbeat Harvest, which I put out on Broken River Books. It's Clive Barker meets Reservoir Dogs, and I love the shit out of it. We also have an interesting discussion about translating the visual and auditory storytelling we love in film into prose.

Check out The Heartbeat Harvest here


49 - Michael Allen Rose

February 24th, 2017

Michael is an author, a musician, and a performance artist. We talk writing exercises, going full bohemian, the importance of bad art, and new adventures.


48 - Joanna C. Valente / Sean H. Doyle / Michael Seidlinger

February 23rd, 2017

Hey everybody! Here's an episode I recorded with an old friend and two new friends. We talk about alcoholism, writing as therapy, high school bands, and high school books.


47 - Ramble

February 10th, 2017

Trying out something new today: I had an hour to spare, so I got caffeinated as fuck and started talking. I present to you the first ramble episode! I talk writing, Facebook, and mental health.


46 - Eric Piper

February 9th, 2017

Eric and I have been friends since the sixth grade. That's 18 years! In this episode, we talk art, philosophy, and our fucked-up hometown. Eric also talks about his time doing a residency in a ramshackle art institute in Estonia. Good times!

Gravesend, France, movies.

I'm trying out these cool "three word descriptions."

Do you like them?

Do you like me?

Are you sure?

Why not?


44 - Adam Cesare

January 30th, 2017

I had Adam Cesare on the podcast! We talk about how to sell books at cons. I really admire this dude. He has a real love for the thing, and he goes out and fucking DOES IT. He wrote The Summer Job, Tribesmen, Video Night, and The Con Season.
