This week's episode revists my "first every podcast." I was very fortunate to go to a high school with a radio station, KSPB 91.9, and on March 17th 2000, my interview with the late, great Ric Masten aired. I went to Masten's house in Big Sur, and we talked about his approach to writing, how he made his living as a poet, and how he had built a community of fans in the early years of the internet. Recorded after his recent diagnosis with prostate cancer, Masten lived for eight years after this inteview, passing away at the age of 78 on 5/9/08. He inspired us to live every day authentically. An interview with a very inspiring and awesome guy, I wanted you all to hear this. His books can be found on Amazon and his music can be found on Discogs.
