Brothers Lee and Tod Goldberg talk about their new books, what their mother sells on eBay and bears without pants. In case you're thinking, wow, how can I tell two podcasting Goldbergs apart, here's a bit of help. Tod is quick to tell you he's the good-looking one (I'm staying neutral); his collection of short stories, Simplify, is the first book published by Other Voices. Lee is a television writer who also writes novels -- the latest, The Man With the Iron-On Badge, is about a wanna-be private eye who learned everything about the profession from TV detectives and suavecitos like Tony Rome.
There's more than could fit in the 15-minute podcast so check out the streaming files in the library to hear the story of Lee's book with the penis on the cover and to catch Tod saying his (patent pending) word, fucktard. You also get to listen to the fab sounds of private-eye theme songs and the scary selection that Tod brought in to match his stories (the complete playlist is online, too).
Happy family holiday with the Goldbergs!
