DAVID WILLIAMS, the author/photographer of the New York Times Bestselling book, Men with Cats is the guest on this week’s Mostly Harmless Podcast! This was a LIVE recording of a Q&A hosted at the Tatter Cover in Denver!

This episode is brought to you by Ratio Beerworks!

I first became familiar with David and his work through our hundred thousand mutual friends! I had become a big fan of the music video David directed for the band Sleeping Weather, not to mention his most excellent portrait work! Even better, David and I had previously been published together a few years earlier in New Noise Magazine issue #2! My interview with the Fort Collins band ELWAY was accompanied by David’s photo of the band for the article!

Right around Thanksgiving, I finally met David in real life at Mutiny information cafe in Denver. His brother’s band Caskitt was in town playing a show and David and his whole family were in attendance. I introduced myself, mentioned that I occasionally hosted live events and that if he was interested in a Men with Cats book release party and Q&A I’d love to host it and help set it up and pretty much the rest was history!

Music from today’s episode includes the tracks, “Friday Night Lightwieghts” from Caskitt and their 2015 release, This Machine Kills Sadness; as well as the track. “I’ll find a way,” by Sleeping Weather from their split 7″ with Placeholder.
