“It’s God…and then Ayn Rand.”

Members of the Austin Writing Workshop conduct a roundtable, free-form discussion of literary and philosophical topics.

The first part of the podcast covers the movie “As Good as It Gets” starring Helen Hunt, Jack Nicholson, and Greg Kinnear.

The second part of the podcast covers the essay “The Objectivist Ethics” by Ayn Rand.

The third part covers Raymond Carver’s “Fat,” literary techniques (including irony), the movie “Edward Scissorhands,” and other arty topics.

People are chomping on food and there are weird background noises the whole time, too, so if that bugs you (as much as it does me) then skip this one.

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.
