This week on the podcast, we unveil The Next Ten Thousand Hours.

Popular memetics would have you believe that it takes ten thousand hours to get really good at something–fortunately, there are all sorts of podcasts and video channels and books to help you through that difficult apprenticeship.

But what about once you get to the vaunted ten-thousand hour mark? What then?

In this show, Kitty NicIaian and I team up to explore (or, to be honest, mock and laugh through) this next phase as it unfolds. Every episode will feature segments where we talk about craft and business issues, a section where I share readings of new stories, and a section where Kitty (who, among other things, is a humorist) shares observations on the absurdities of our local version of the universe.

This week on The Next Ten Thousand Hours:

  1. Introduction to the show and the workings behind-the-scenes at AWP
  2. Reading: A selection from He Ain’t Heavy, the nearly-released book 5 of The Clarke Lantham Mysteries
  3. Kitty’s Corner: BART Encounters

We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it!
