Watch Ryan Murdock in conversation with Lawrence Millman


Did you miss my live stream conversation with writer Lawrence Millman on Tuesday?

I heard there was some sort of election in the US. Surely you weren’t watching that instead?!

Don’t you want to know what drink pairs best with bird droppings…?

Aren’t you curious about how he scared away a mother grizzly and her cubs by flashing his genitals at them…?

Do you really mean to tell me you don’t want to know why you must absolutely invite the person you dreamed about into your home…?

Okay, I get it.

You’re desperately sorry you missed this.

You might even be contemplating some rash act of repentance, like self-flagellation or forcing yourself to listen to Gloria by Laura Brannigan on endless repeat.

Don’t do that to yourself.

Watch what you missed, instead.

The new book — The Last Speaker of Bear — is about Lawrence’s lifetime of travels in the north — and what a remarkable set of travels it’s been.

He’s a staunch advocate of traditional stories, and he’s done much to preserve the vanishing lore of northern peoples.

We talk about all of that and more in a conversation brought to you by the great people at Trinity University Press.

I hope you enjoy it.
