"Unknown Words" is a bi-monthly podcast dedicated to highlighting the work of unpublished or lesser known writers.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.

Syndication

We have three stories today from writer/filmmaker, Annabel Graham. Her writing, when fictional and non-fictional, has a way of finding ghosts, a way of tracing their influence on our lives. These can be the spirits of lost loved ones, or the ominous presence of a landscape itself, both having the power to present the world to us in their liking. Her stories on today's show all share the ability, almost paradoxically, to be both mysterious and intimate, leaving the reader affected, but still slightly unsure just how it happened. 

 

Her writing has appeared in Cosmonauts Avenue, Atticus Review, Cutbank Magazine, The Gallatin Review, Corium Magazine, and elsewhere.

Conversation Topics: Cannes Film Festival, short film, film making, writing, NYU, screenwriting, non-fiction, family, illness, LA, grief, mourning, personal writing.

Nkem Obi-Melekwe creates music under the name Mon Nobi. His songs are dreamy and surreal, sometimes psychedelic; they grow out of the calamity of everyday sounds. Nkem also has his roots in hip hop, and many of his songs oscillate in and out of that region of music. They can sometimes move from trip hop to fully ambient electronic and then into straight, old school beats. He's a young guy, but he's already carved out his own peculiar and ever developing style. 

Conversation Topics: music, the South, Asheville, North Carolina, producing, sampling, collaborating, soundcloud, genres, playfulness, screamo, recording, cartoons, Adult Swim, Flying Lotus, Htrk, Phantogram, drawing.
