Bonus Episode: A Conversation with Duncan B. Barlow

In this bonus episode I talk to one-time Naropa classmate Duncan B. Barlow about punk rock in Louisville, losing our fathers, our mutual affection for Bobbie Louise Hawkins and Laird Hunt, how to stay in the game, and the cats that interrupt us.

Wurth’s recent book Bucskin Cocaine.
