another radio show!

Hooray! The amazing and talented Katey Sleeveless, song-writer and radio-show producer extraordinaire, has produced a series of radio shows on the topic of hitch-hiking, and I am in them! The first episode is finished, and you can listen to it here. Katey interviewed me on the phone one day after I’d eaten a bunch of chocolate, and I got really worked up and talked about how riding freight trains gave me all my self esteem. Listen to it!

And in case you missed it, Tara and I were on internet radio a few weeks ago reading stories, and you can listen to that recording here.

  1. Lol, I’m laughing in a completely non malicious way. Your voice Carrot… it’s so… unexpected. If I had to put a label on it you sound like an affluent, peppy, valley girl. It is just so endearing ! “he was like, you know he was like nineteen” From your writings I already knew you were intelligent and well read. But listening to your voice, the cadence the speed of your speech, your mind must race at an incredible pace. Hearing about your past and seeing how you are today is proof. The past does not have to define your future. You are an inspiration. My guess would be in the future you will be so to many many more. Keep up the great adventure ! (and blog).

  2. Hartage- it’s Portland! That’s the way people in Portland talk, and Portland is where I’ve spent most of the last eight years! It’s the west-coast white-people up-talk! I spent a few winters in North Carolina and tried, desperately, to develop a southern accent- but alas, it wasn’t time enough. Plus my friends there don’t really have them, because they went away to college and lost them. Dude, your past totally does not have to determine your future- most people like to blame everything on their parents, which is total BS, if you ask me. The world is fucked and some of us get it worse than others, but many of us, as adults, have heckloads of privilege and are responsible for that, no matter what our childhoods were like- we can’t hide behind victimhood forever. We have to do whatever it takes- years of therapy if need be- we have to teach ourselves how to be responsible human beings, which means not blaming other people for our own actions.

  3. I totally agree. I hope that you didn’t take my last comment the wrong way. I’m just glad that you don’t have that hardened quality that some travelers have. If you are the product of adventuring around the continent then more people including myself need to do more of the same !
