Let Darger & Surplus Teach You . . . How To Run A Con!


Great news today.  The top-secret project that Gregory Frost and I were working on is out! 

Darger & Surplus Teach You . . . How to Run a Con! is a series of short instructional podcasts on the art of the scam as narrated by the two foremost con men of the Postutopian Era.  Playing against type, I took the role of the optimistic dog of action, Sir Blackthorpe Ravenscairn de Plus Precieux -- Surplus, as he's known to his friends.  Gregory Frost, meanwhile, is simply magnificent as the indomitable Aubrey Darger.

There are twelve podcasts in all, and StarShipSofa will be running them once a week, from now to the publication of Dancing With Bears. Which, not coincidentally, stars Darger & Surplus.

You can find the first episode here in StarShipSofa No. 136.

Above:  Isn't that a great jug?  I saw it today in the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
