Can’t believe it’s taken me this long to meet Jim Krusoe. I’ve been hearing about him forever. He’s a pillar of the LA lit community and was even my colleague for a time at Santa Monica College, where he has taught for years and where I taught for a spell. (How did we not meet then?) Anyway. He came over and sat down and we talked for an hour and could’ve talked for another hour. He’s been in Los Angeles for a long time, transplanted, just like me, from the Midwest, and has seen the city through a few evolutions. Fun to ask him about his early years here, and how the city has changed and so on.
In today’s monologue, I read some mail from listeners.
