In this episode of Saturday Show Podcast, we discuss the supreme importance of having a reading chair, the need for raising awareness about putting an END to the horrible practice of creating “honk signs,” and other important societal matters. The show goes on the road to broadcast LIVE! (to tape) from Baker Street Pub on South Lamar in Austin, where we talk to random bar patrons about literature and conduct a deep conversation about literature and film while bar patrons near us talk about Bruno Mars and Beyonce.

Frank Marcopolos founded "The Whirligig" literary magazine in 1999, which has been called "a landmark, demonstrating the power of the literary underground." It has been said that "you get this true lion-roaring sense that Editor Frank Marcopolos knows what he likes, and how to read, and how to publish, and he has guts, and eats insects on Wheaties with bleach." His long-form fiction has been reviewed with such praise as "thorough-goingly entertaining" and "highly readable...recalls the style of Michael Chabon or John Irving. A literary gem that should not be missed." A broadcasting-school graduate, his unique literary-audio work has been featured in movie trailers, scholastic environments, and on YouTube, with one of his audiobooks achieving over 100,000 "views" there.
