One response to “Episode 460: Gwen Mullins!”

  1. What a great author photo!

    Anyway, I’m happy to be one of the few, the proud who contributed to your $47. It was money well spent. Very glad to hear there’ll be a new one out one of these days, so sing out on the podcast if and when it’s available for pre-order.

    Some interesting comments from Ms Mullins about how the South is changing. I would say that if Florida is not, or no longer, a Southern state, then neither is Texas, since the ethnic mix is much the same – well, fewer New Yorkers there, but it’s kind of the same. As to a Florida accent, I think the people in and around Jacksonville have it, although so many regional accents are dying, swamped by social media and easy migration.

    You couldn’t’ve asked for better background noise in the talk about bullies. There’s the ghost of Jack Kerouac at play.

    There were many other things she spoke about, but I don’t want to lengthen this comment too much. There’ve been a good set of authors on lately – keep that up!
