Podcasting at podomatic.com and iTunes
Adventures in podcasting continues. Listen in to the free downloads at either http://cmmayo.podomatic.com or itunes. A few of the topics I'll be covering in the coming weeks: a talk about some literary journals (reprise of a talk I gave at the Feria Internacional de Libros in Guadalajara, celebrating Literal); "Hell I Knew It Was Paradise" and "Lay Thine Hand Upon Him" from my memoir of Baja California, Miraculous Air; and, for writers, "How to Break a Block in 5 Minutes."
Here's the menu so far:
