The People, with Insert Blanc Editor and Publisher Mathew Timmons and Insert Blanc Artist Ben White, features the voices and ideas of The People that make up the cultural landscape of Los Angeles, the west coast, and beyond on KCHUNG 1630AM every 3rd Sunday at 3pm and podcast on iTunes as The People Radio. The People is me, The People is you, The People is we, and You Can Too! … like a Broken Record magically repaired. In this issue of The Conversant, we feature episode 35 with Nikki Darling and Sam Cohen.

On this episode our guests are Nikki Darling and Sam Cohen. Nikki Darling is a writer and critic in Los Angeles, and she describes her work as investigating notions of power, identity, lust and drive. Joining our conversation is Los Angeles writer Sam Cohen whose chapbook Gossip is available from Birds of Lace Press.

Later in the show we also hear Anne Boyer read a poem from a recent performance here in Los Angeles.

And we close out the show with a recent Godley and Creme flip from friend of the show DJ Sí Sí Sí Gracias, alter ego of SUN ARAW. You can hear more of his music at – and the name of the track is SAM CREME.
