I was a guest on the Educated Guess podcast today.
Justin (the host) and I go back a good bit. He’s a good friend, an exceptionally talented producer and musician, and a young man pointed in the right direction. His podcast is primarily for young, soon-to-be college age artists and tech kids looking for the answer to the most difficult question facing anyone graduating high school: What now?
I go into my career, how I left college after 6 months to be a dot com kid, how that led to book deals, television writing, and ultimately, my stay in the hospital after a mental breakdown. We discuss my views on cyberpunk as a genre: what is it, how has it changed since it was invented, and why does so much modern “cyberpunk” stuff suck? (Also, I explore why there are only 2 black people and no other races besides white folk in Minority Report… It’s a doozy). And at the end of it, you’ll have a decent view into my mind state in 2018.
