I’ve recently started making some essay podcasts with Michael Branch, a humorist, essayist, and generally wonderful Nevada writer who does an essay a month for High Country News. They’re nicknamed Rantcasts, since they are taken from his essay series entitled: “Rants from the Hill.”
Rantcast 4: Bumper sticker sloganeering (on possessing environmental bumper stickers in the sagebrush rebel country of rural Nevada)
Rantcast 3: Sorry, Utah (on finding balloon trash on wilderness walks, then sending it out again.)
Rantcast 2: The silence of desert greetings (on Mary Austin and the general taciturnity of desert dwellers)
Rantcast 1: The leprechaun trap (on spending silly holidays with kids, whiskey, and quality lawn ornaments.)
