Here's part two of my conversation with writer/performer Beth Lisick.
Also available on Spotify, iTunes, and pretty much everywhere pods are cast! (just search for "15 minutes jamie berger).
Before the conversation, I read a shortened version of an essay of mine called "Peep Show", that Beth was instrumental in getting me to write, a pretty long time ago., when she asked me to perform at her (And Arline Klatte's) legendary San Francisco storytelling series, Porch Light.
If you want more of a bio of Beth, check out Episode 52, where you can find the first half of our conversation.
Among the topics we dive into here in Part 2 are:
Moving to New York City in one's 40s, writing/writer career stuff and how we define success therein, "Punk-Rock Damage," asserting/enjoying one's own successes, making sure you get to do your own own audio book if you have the chance and want to!, working with a writing partner, avoiding becoming a “brand,” connecting with strangers in Trump Year One, #metoo and Louis and Harvey and fame and sex and power and whether it’s time for redemption and the misuse of the word “pervert” as equivalent to “predator,” and a bunch of other stuff.
