“Is that a true story?” It’s the question I’ve been dying to ask Brian Grosz for quite some time after hearing many of his wild tales—road life, bar life, chef life, artist life, musician life, encountering all kinds of life-life. Rest assured folks, they are ALL TRUE. Listen and be amazed yourself. Better yet, get yourself a copy of Brian’s amazing book, Squalor, available by print or audiobook (recommended) narrated by Brian of course. Also, Hearsay Poetry celebrates 1 year! Stay tuned for a special additional podcast with yours truly in the hot seat.
A note about Brian from Brian: I like to think of myself as a "Maker." I make ideas, things, words, connections, and - every now and again - a ruckus, a scene, and a stink. Over the past 15 or so years, I've made a living as a as a computer programmer, graphic designer, stunt-driver, catering chef, fish-cutter, bouncer, bartender, waiter, roadie, photographer, journalist, painter, soap opera actor, trucker, set-decorator, art director and I was even on a Japanese game show. Twice. No lie.
And I've never half-assed any of it.
