The Dinner Party Download featuring Dave Eggersby Rico Gagliano, Marketplace,
Brendan Newnam, Marketplace
This week on the Dinner Party Download...
Eisner award-winning cartoonist Tony Millionaire, creator of the comic strip "Maakies" and the all-ages graphic novel "Billy Hazelnuts and the Crazy Bird," regales us with a joke that's plane funny.
Aaron Britt, senior editor for Dwell Magazine, chats with Rico and Brendan about a print-publishing long shot... called "Long Shot."
A History Lesson With Booze:
Learn about the British Major who really wanted to be a millionaire... then pretend you are one while sipping a "Deception," created for the Dinner Party Download by Christian Self, bar manager at 39 Hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Guest of Honor: Dave Eggers
Dave Eggers is a best-selling author, a screenwriter, a literary magazine publisher, the leader of an educational nonprofit collective...oh, and he draws too. He talks to Rico about his new portfolio "It Is Right To Draw Their Fur," and about the one thing he can't tolerate.
Hear a longer version of the show -- including an extended interview with Eggers and new music from indiepop O.G.'s Belle and Sebastian -- at www.dinnerpartydownload.org.
