Higher Mysteries podcast
My buddy Rick Kleffel has posted his podcasts of the Higher Mysteries panel, in which four top-ranking crime writers talk about using religion and theology in their work, on his web site, The Agony Column:
“You’re all here for Tax Law 101, right?”
—Laurie R. King
For all the seriousness of her premise, Laurie R. King set a light tone for her panel discussion about “Higher Mysteries” with Sharan Newman, Julia Spencer-Fleming and Zoe Ferraris. King is a natural ring-leader, and must have been a rather mischievous student when she was studying theology in college. She makes a great host for three other very smart writers.
I captured the whole one-hour plus conversation, which offers a lot of fun, insight, and most importantly, many reasons to read. It’s hard to listen to such a great talk and not head directly to the library or bookstore to pick up the subjects of conversation.
But wait, there’s more!
He also recorded one-on-one interviews with all four of us who participated in the event, and has those available as well. Rick, who does a lot of work for NPR, is one of the best interviewers around. I think you’ll love what he got the four of us to say.
