The Fifth Network
We continue talking to acclaimed British author Geoff Dyer whose fourth novel Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi is published this week. Today we discuss how his current book came about; the relationship between Geoff/Jeff; and coping with readers’ expectations.
In today’s Write Report, Donna reports on ScriptFrenzy – a contest to produce 100 pages of scripted material during the month of April. And the growing popularity of computer games – in terms of numbers, they’re big enough to become the fifth TV network – but could they become a creative genre?
We couldn’t do it without you, and that’s the truth. You really do keep us on the air.
If you value truly independent broadcasting – not beholden to special interest groups, the curse of political correctness or some nefarious media baron – then please support us now.
Here are our goals…
Goal #1: We Go Weekly!
We’d love to be with you more often than once a month. But every show needs a lot of time to prepare… Our first goal is to produce a top-quality show every week – please help us get there!
Goal #2: We Go Video!
Wouldn’t it be nice to see our guests? Video will add a new dimension to what we do (and yes, we’ll always have top-quality audio available, too).
Goal #3: We Go On The Road!
Help LAD get off our tushies and produce some of the best location shows you’ve ever heard. We can do it – with your help!
You can cancel at any time (but we hope you won’t!). And thank you – your kind patronage truly makes all the difference.
