1.6 Skydiving

The Story

The second part of a special edition two part - sort of - story. I say ‘sort of’ because the last episode and this one include the same story, but done differently. Last week you heard a studio produced recording of the long version of the story. This week includes a much shorter live version performed at the Stories We Don’t Tell event.

That time I went skydiving with Thumper. All the fear, all the wonder, all the terrifying and ultimately profound moments.

Paul's Pick

Haruki Murakami’s books are addictive. Okay, this is a general pick for the author’s total oeuvre. Really, just grab one of his many books and you’ll get hooked as well. I just picked up his latest collection of stories called Men Without Women, which will probably be featured on Paul’s Pick in the future.

An ex-girlfriend of mine turned me on to Murakami years ago with Norwegian Wood and I quickly devoured every one of his books I could get my hands on. If you do want a gateway drug into Murakami’s work, check out 1Q84. Sure, it’s a big book, but you’ll tear through it at a ridiculous speed.
