Last week I talked about finding Michael Denneny dead at his apartment when I showed up for our podcast session (here’s his Washington Post obit). This brief (11+ min.) bonus episode covers the week since then, the response from his friends, colleagues, and loved ones, and how I’ve been doing since then. Give it a listen and go read Michael’s final book, On Christopher Street (and go listen to last week’s 50-min. monologue about finding Michael, & more)
