09: 'A Place For Us To Write Freely', with guest Brian Leak

When this thing started as an Under The Gun branded show, Brian Leak (aka The Lion) was initially supposed to be my cohost. Alas, a change in career led him to Substream Magazine where he is now Editor In Chief. A week removed from dropping his first issue there, we discuss how starting at a local rag evolved into a career.

You’ll have to forgive some audio artifacts. Brian had a rough night of being ill the night before, so he forgot his headphones. As a result there are a few overlaps in dialogue.
