Infinite Gestation • A Literary Podcast for the Novel Individual.
Three writers discuss and debate all things literary: books, authors, reading, film adaptations, pop culture & the state of humanity, often while drinking and seldom without casualties.
A writer by day and bartender by night, Patrick Feild (a confessed cinemaphile) spends his time reveling in the obscure, people watching, tending to his book collection and procuring legal pads for later use in his laboratory. Though not technically vegan, he enjoys vegan cooking (the health benefits are astounding). A transplant from Miami, Florida, he currently lives in a small midwestern town with his wife, Mary and their Weimaraners, Quentin & Marzi.
Sam, or Samuel Zurcher if you are weird and deplore informality like he does, is sometimes torn away from writing and books by economics/business consulting. He on occasion farms, philosophizes, thinks about physics, argues about politics, and laments his terrible violin playing (some reference to the Jeffersonian ideal here). Favorite living author: Salman Rushdie. Favorite song: It’s Only a Paper Moon. Favorite movie: Doctor Strangelove; or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. Favorite old movie actress: Claudia Cardinale. “That’s right, not Marilyn Monroe, I said it, come and get me,” he said while drinking.
A reporter by day, and procrastinator in remission, Grant Karazsia still yearns for the call to take his rightful place among the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In his spare time he tends to his ever-growing typewriter collection with his faithful direwolf Rufus at his side. A native of Greene County, Indiana and a current survivor of Linton, Grant aspires, like most authors, to pen the next “Great American Novel,” but he is currently happy just getting paid to write.
Born in a village, Matt Bird worked in a print shop during high school, turned to literature in college, and boomeranged to become a special collections librarian teaching courses on book history and cinema culture at a local university. A peppered résumé denoting his time as a cinema projectionist, cinema marketing manager, hat salesman, bed peddler, cell phone slinger, mythology/Latin lecturer, and English teacher informs his short story writing. Matt moves from occasional guest to full-time until the guys get tired of his recording night couch crashing. He collects modern first editions and books about books . . . and now pretentious autobiographical blurbs.
