Fantastic Tales in the Second Person - A Podcast you'll never forget! AND it will make you laugh!


Fantastic Tales in the Second Person!

Steve Gadlin of I Want to Draw a Cat for You fame has always been extremely funny and original.
http://iwanttodrawacatforyou.com/   His sales pitch went down in Shark Tank history!
Now he's getting into podcasts in the second person singular and plural! You don't just hear about someone else living inside of a TV set - you do it! You don't live through a character to experience jumping out of an airplane - you do it! And being the non-conformist that he is, episode two is on top of episode one. Why not? This is no time to be anal.

Oh and by the way, besides his cat drawing business, Steve has moved into a new species. Selling raccoon.....um... raccoon...boy part bones...oh, Hell, I'll spit it out...raccoon penis bones in little plastic tubes. Anyway, if you know about Steve and think he's squirrely, this video takes the cake! Steves's unorthodox new venture.

How can you not want to read about a Gaijin Cowgirl?

Gaijin Cowgirl

When I saw the title Gaijin Cowgirl, I wasn't expecting this character to be a Congressman's daughter. The unexpected, along with danger and intrigue all come with this Asian Noir.

Read more: 

Working Tokyo nightclubs is easy money for beautiful and troubled American Val Benson – until a wealthy client with a dark past – reluctantly gives up a map to a stash of Japanese war loot and tempts his favourite girl into a dangerous treasure hunt.

But the Congressman’s daughter is not the only one interested in the map: Yakuza, bent cops, human traffickers, rogue CIA agents and her father are hot on her trail, snapping at her high heels.
So begins the dark, epic journey of a new anti-hero of Asian Noir, a protagonist both ambiguous and courageous, and utterly unreliable. From comfort women and tomb-raiding in Japanese-occupied Burma to the murderous echoes of the Vietnam War, long forgotten crimes come roaring back to life, as Val leaves a trail of destruction and chaos in her wake.

Together with her best friend, the equally unreliable nightclub hostess Suki, a British kickboxer and a washed up Australian treasure hunter, Val travels through Tokyo, Hong Kong and Bangkok to the Thai-Burmese borderlands for a dramatic showdown with her pursuers. Finding the treasure before someone less deserving does is her only hope for survival, and perhaps redemption.
