The Bartender is joined by herself because her computer somehow lost all of her yet-to-be-released interviews (and all of GarageBand!) so the very special Halloween episode will be up next week BUT Katharine didn’t want to leave you hanging. So, for the first time, she is releasing audio from the very personal (and hilarious!) one woman show she did 4 years ago about her (difficult relationship with her) dad. She is very nervous and needs a hug. Enjoy! Like the show? Tip The Bartender! Or give it 5 stars!

The incredibly talented Mychal Denzel Smith is a contributing writer at The Nation, freelances for other major publications, makes frequent appearances on television and is prodigious on Twitter. He also spent four years at a distinguished university but never graduated. This is a story about questioning authority, why it’s so important to do so no matter what the consequences, and, like any great narrative, there is a boat explosion. Ok, he had nothing to do with the boat but he is responsible for some other big things.
