Alex Rodriguez. Juiced. Jerk. Good riddance.

A-Rod found guilty! 162-game suspension! An entire career built on ‘roidy fraud! And Frank discusses how this illuminates some of the deepest philosophical concepts of our time. (No, it isn’t a stretch.) Also discussed are “Nirvana” by Pulitzer Prize winner Adam Johnson, and Frank’s novel about fraternal competition, “Almost Home,” available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.

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.
