"Unknown Words" is a bi-monthly podcast dedicated to highlighting the work of unpublished or lesser known writers. Each episode, Matthew reads a either a short story, creative non-fiction, or works of poetry then interviews the writer to gain some insight into the work's composition and just maybe that of the author's.

The character of today's story jumps headlong into a culture he only knows as a spectator: the drag queen show. He is an outsider and feels like a fraud for it, yet this is how he feels not only to the drag queens, but to almost everyone in his life. He decides to prove himself to the world in one motion, through one spectacular show and transformation. Nothing ever goes wrong in putting it all on one big, last bet, right?

 

Conversation Topics: storytelling, movies, writing, fiction, literature, Blockbuster, movie theaters, short stories, Saul Williams, reading, horror, scifi, collaboration, graphic novel, novella, novel, Stay, travel, Spokane, Washington, regional writing, Inception, Zombeavers. 

 

Joseph's story, "One More Drag Queen", was originally published at Zygote in my Coffee. He has also been published in RiverlitThe Inlander, and has a book forthcoming from University of Hell Press

You can find more of Joe's writing at his website. You can also check out his podcast, Extremist Movie Debate, which is beautifully self exaplantory.
