A Conversation with "Champion" Joe Lansdale Part 2

I would like to thank the very kind and generous folks who donated to the December annual fundraiser yesterday. There are some really cool and giving folks out there who will be receiving their thank you notes very soon. There was a very nice donation on Thursday night. I am very moved by that kind gesture. So wonderful. I am now just 200 dollars away from the goal for the December annual fundraiser. The monies, as you know, will go towards the video podcast next year and following through on some of the great opportunities that are being finalized for my online and other work.

The sooner we reach that goal the faster I can pull back in the begging bowl and get back to business as usual. As always, if after having taken care of your human and animal family members, yourself, and other obligations, throw some love in the donation bucket so that I/we can continue to grow the site and get our video podcast up and running next year.


Print author, TV, and film writer Joe Lansdale is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. This is the second time that "Champion" Joe has stopped by to chat at the virtual bar and he does not disappoint.

Chauncey and Joe talked about a huge range of topics including, the new Hap and Leonard book and TV series, his new book Paradise Sky which is about African-American cowboy Nat Love, Joe's work on the Batman cartoon series, writing Tarzan, thinking about the movie John Carter of Mars, generational change and codes of honor, manhood, race, martial arts, Ronda Rousey's loss, Bruce Lee, and whatever topics happened to come up.

Champion Joe is always lots of fun and does some great teaching and sharing as is his habit on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show.

This week's podcast also features some Star Wars: The Force Awakens content. Friend of the site and podcast Bill the Lizard stops by to talk with Chauncey about their excitement, fears, and worries about the new movie. This conversation was recorded Wednesday, the night before the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. There will be a special all things Star Wars: The Force Awakens podcast episode next week where Chauncey and Bill the Lizard talk about the new movie. 

In addition to the great sharing and teaching offered by Joe Lansdale and Bill the Lizard, on this 
episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Chauncey talks about the human zoo sociopaths at the CNN GOP primary "debate", discussed the Freddie Gray mistrial for the first thug cop whose inaction/actions led to that horrible death, revealed more about his soda addiction, and talked about going on the David Pakman Show and the accusations that Chauncey looks like a turtle and is high on bath salts.

This episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show can be downloaded from Libsyn and also listened to here. This great set of conversations with Joe Lansdale and Bill the Lizard can be "watched" on Youtube at this link.
