A Round with Steve and Cole

Welcome Back Faithful Listeners!

This episode, we talk with one of my favorite people, a rare example of that all-too-elusive creature: the “working artist”.

Some of you may know Ann Glaviano from her alter ego, DJ Ann Glaviano of the twice-monthly Heatwave! dance party at Twelve Mile Limit and Okay Bar. She’s gained a loyal following for her well-curated playlists of energetic 50s/60s/70s pop, soul, garage, and R&B, and also for cultivating what she refers to as a, “PRO-CONSENT, ANTI-ASSHOLE DANCEFLOOR.”

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Did you know that she’s also a published writer of both short fiction and essays? Her story, “Come On, Silver” was selected for Best American Short Stories 2018. Or that she’s a dancer and choreographer?

Ann is making a living cobbling together earnings from her various artistic pursuits. How does anyone actually do that? Tune in to find out! (On a related note, if you’re enjoying ARWSAC, please support our Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/ARWSAC.)
