I, too, hate people. Over the years, however, I've acknowledged that life is all about our fellow passengers to the grave. They may be a kind stranger, an intriguing figure in the hallway, your ex-best friend. For readers like me, they are also the characters that feel too real in a made-up story. In this podcast, I'd like to talk about them and to them in hopes of enriching our worlds, if not have a good laugh to lighten the day.
