Episode 51 – R. Jean Mathieu

We think this week’s episode is a good one because we don’t talk to a lot of fiction authors from the west coast. R. Jean Mathieu is from California and let us know about his short story “Glâcehouse”. It’s not something we’d come across normally but we’re glad we did. R. Jean will talk about the inspiration of the story and about his very very interesting life.
