It's Monday and Graphic Policy Radio is back for a brand new episode. We have a very special episode with return guest Scott Kaufman, who you might know as SEK.
Guardians of the Galaxy is still in theaters, ruling the box office as the top earning domestic film in 2014... so far. The film has lead what has been an abysmal summer box office, and out-performed expectations and won over audiences. We'll discuss the film and try to figure out exactly why it's taken movie theaters by storm. And.... We are Groot!
Scott is the proprietor of the AV Club's Internet Film School and an associate editor at The Raw Story. He also writes for Lawyers, Guns & Money, podcasts, and is an expert on Game of Thrones.
Sweatpants & Novels invites you to slip into something comfy, pour a cup of coffee (or someting stronger!) and join host Richard M. Simms as he chats with Kathryn O'Sullivan, author of this month's read, Murder On The Hoof. The author -- whose third book, Neighing With Fire is set to come out this spring -- will share with us how she comes up with her delightfully devilish plots, why she chose to set the series in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and exactly how she manages to find time to write inbetween teaching and working on her award-winning Web series, THURSTON! Got questions? Give us a call. Otherwise, sit back, saddle up and enjoy the ride!
Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest.
Author Thatcher C. Nalley joins me on the Indie Books Show this week to talk about Letters from the Looney Bin and her other books.
In the late 1970s the Emerson Rose Asylum became completely abandoned - all the patients, doctors, staff vanished and were never seen again. The events circling this mass exodus have been one of the most baffling disappearances in history...until now. For hidden deep inside a tattered asylum mattress a stack of bundled letters were found. These letters, all addressed to the pseudonym Dr. Quill, and all written by the patients as they document the final days of the Emerson Rose Asylum.
Tune in Friday at 11AM EST or listen to the archive.

Skeleton Trail: A Riverview Mystery:
Bethany and Roger Meadows plan for a bright future, a guest camp and pack station that will cater to horse owners and adventure campers. The campgrounds, cabins, stables, and pavilion are ready, but there are no trails for the guests to explore.
Bethany and Megan venture into the woods to mark a trail, but a frightening accident brings her face to skull with a mummified corpse. She sends Megan and Kam out to guide FBI Forensic specialist David Harrison to the location of the body. After Megan leaves, an unknown shooter attempts to keep the murder a mystery.
Agent David Harrison finds when the bullets start flying Kam leads him to an abandoned cabin where they wait out the storm and the shooter. He discovers he wants to explore their shared heritage, in private.
With the evidence they uncovered in the cabin and the corpse itself, the mystery unfolds and the connections to current day become clearer. Crimes of the distant past link to crimes of the closer past and even to crimes of the present; blackmail, extortion, arson, and murder attempts link the body and some of the current residents of Riverview. David and Kam work with Megan and Aaron to uncover connections and reveal what occurred so long ago and how it might affect people in the town today.
David and Kam grow closer with each new danger, coming to appreciate the similarities in their pasts and the differences that draw them to each other. Once all the mysteries are solved, can they find a way to become a lasting couple, or will her past interfere with their future?
Chris Sternal - Co-Founder of MFC - MyFantasyCommish.com
I studied Business at Indiana University, Bloomington, and completed a Bachelor's Degree in marketing communications at Columbia College Chicago in 2008. My professional work experience is in outside sales and business development for both IT and recruiting firms. I have been playing fantasy sports for over 10 years and have experience with football, basketball, baseball and hockey. I'm a strong believer that fantasy football requires the least amount of skill, a great amount of luck, and that prognostication and coverage have been watered down over the past few years because of the amount of resources available to players.
Jace Cosentino- My Fantasy Commish Co-Founder
I'm a die-hard Chicago Bears fan, first and foremost; the Blackhawks follow, trailed closely by the Bulls. I graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in psychology (no, I don't read minds). I have been playing fantasy sports for 10 years and running leagues for just as long. I'm an all around sports fan and am always interested in learning new sports (became a huge Premier League fan 3 years ago). Since my glory days of playing high school sports are gone, you can usually spot me watching a game, doing something athletic, or trying something new. In the narcissistic driven culture of pro sports, I'm still a huge believer and fan of, "the love of the game."
