NOTE: this was recorded long before the revelations about Kilstein and he was never improper with me, so I was unaware of his apparently well-known reputation. We weren’t close, just friendly when we ran into each other as we were adjacent to the same circles.
In brief: This show is all Jamie Kilstein because we are, unsurprisingly, really chatty. In fact the end sounds like us every phone conversation with my cousin, brother, and best friend. You find out why my mom thinks I’m gay (spoiler: it’s Jamie’s fault), how music has made him happy instead of anxious, and why his least edgy material gets him all the hate mail. Oh, and the show graphic by my friend Nina Bargiel is a commentary on the dudes in the “Cat Call” track. Just to be clear.
Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!
I basically said it all in the brief up top: I love this conversation because Jamie’s great and was so generous with his time. I did a quick intro added the brilliant Dahlia Lithwick’s take on the Texas anti-abortion law being heard at the Supreme Court for those who won’t get the chance to read her full analysis on how it hinges on the unpredictable Justice Kennedy. Then it was right into the interview!

THE song responsible for changing my life:
I never said it was an amazing, joke — just that it lands and targets the right person:
All original music by “sparkling, glittery 60’s piano diva” Normandie Wilson
