Novel ROMANtics Podcast

by Douglas Cowie on 11 February 2021

I’m pleased to say I’ve been invited by the Amerikazentrum in Hamburg, Germany to host a monthly podcast about contemporary American literature.

The first episode, in which I discuss Bluebird, Bluebird and Heaven, My Home, two really interesting novels by Attica Locke, with academic and competitive strongman Dr. Oli Belas, is now available here.

I’m also pleased that the title of the podcast is such a ridiculous multilingual pun. Check it out every month, along with the other podcasts hosted by the Trans-Atlanticist.

This election matters.

by Douglas Cowie on 18 August 2020

Please take eight minutes and thirty-nine seconds to listen to Bernie Sanders explain why this election matters. Please vote.

He’s not allowed to say don’t let the fascists win, but don’t let the fascists win.
