Brad King hosts The Downtown Writers Jam Podcast, a discussion with writers about the terrible things in life that led them to join the ranks of the weird and the writerly.

Ben H. Winters is the author of the best selling book Sense and Sensibilities and Sea Monsters as well as the The Last Policeman trilogy, and a relatively recent Indianapolis transplant. He sat down with Brad to talk about his utter lack of direction in his early writing career and his daily writing routine that involves no Internet and tons of structure. At the end, he talks about his newest counter-factual novel — currently under construction — that explores an America where the Civil War never happened, and slavery was never abolished.
