Episode 116 – Tim Dodge

On August 21, 2012, in Podcast, by Patrick Hester

In episode 116 of the Functional Nerds podcast, Patrick Hester and John Anealio welcome author and fellow podcaster Tim Dodge.

About Tim:

I am a middle-aged guy who prefers to think younger. I am the author of two podcast novels, Acts of Desperation and Purgatory. Because I have been unsuccessful in getting these books in print the conventional way, I am in the midst of the self-publishing project. I enjoy reading and writing, running, playing my guitar, and watching sports (I am, however, somewhat dangerous at sports; most people don’t have to obtain a weapon permit for their golf clubs.) I live in my favorite place in the U.S.A., which is Central New York, where you can drive anywhere in less than a half hour, enjoy all four seasons in the space of a few days, and enjoy the city and the country any day you want, depending on your mood. I’m doing this podcast because I love talking to people about what they do, I love exposing people to stories and other creative pursuits that they didn’t know about before, and I love being part of the podcast community. Plus, I bought a Zoom H2 digital recorder and have to justify the cost. I hope you’ll join me on this tour of the creative minds all around us. And always look on the geek side of life.

  1. Interesting interview as always, guys.

    And I will bring pie the next time I am on. Or maybe a Kringle. Mmm. Kringle. 🙂

    I know several people who said they wouldnt bother with more Martin after reading his post…but I know just as many that swore off him after the let down that was Dance…

    How many will hold themselves to what they said is the question, Id guess about half.

    Personally Ive known he was an aging hippy since the 80s. So his diatribe didnt bother me so much. But I will admit I have avoided the work of authors because of what they have said on blogs, or in interviews, or worse what they have written in their books. Rarely is it out of some ideological thing, but just in the grand scheme there is only so much I can read, and if I have to choose between someone that has been insulting or someone that hasnt. Well that choice is easy.

    That is one of the reason I like Patrick’s 3 rules so much. One of the most infuriating things is to be listening to a podcast then have the hosts, or guests, go off on some tangent about how beef is barbeque…I mean how can you even take them seriously again?
