Talking Paper #5 Jim Ruland, Carla Fox & John Fox

Jan 27, 2017, 12:19 AM

Episode date, January 12th, 2017: Life experience is the theme of this episode of Talking Paper (recorded on location at Por Vida in the Barrio Logan section of San Diego, CA) - that includes writing about one's own experiences (and those of others), keeping your knowledge & body healthy through research, and handling the end of life. I begin by interviewing Jim Ruland about his Vermin on the Mount reading series, his debut novel Forest of Fortune, and his writing collaboration with former-Black Flag vocalist Keith Morris. I then interview San Diego geriatricians Dr. Carla Fox & Dr. John Fox (Carla John) about how they gain new medical knowledge almost 40 years into practicing medicine, and the virtues of the late Dr. Oliver Sacks. I also read Black Flag lyrics, and Sacks' memoir take on the mixed reception to his most famous book, Awakenings.
