20 Minutes with Christopher Moore

Christopher Moore

Christopher Moore – who translates his unique and irreverent perception into astonishingly hilarious novels (that have been accused of being bitingly satirical) such as “Lamb“, “Fool“, “A Dirty Job” and many more – has truly forged his own path through the storytelling wilderness. His experience and instincts have served him well and cultivated a unique voice that has not only engaged a devoted legion of fans, but has also seen every one of his novels optioned for film or television (dude’s doing something right). Brion and I had so much fun with Chris that we completely ignored the clock and went 30+ minutes (reckless daredevils that we are) discussing the essence of opinion versus genre, luck versus skill, when to put on the brakes, and so much more. It’s buffet of writerly goodness so grabv a plate and hit that PLAY button! (and the literary feast continues in Chris’s Workshop Episode!)

  1. Fascinating episode, guys! This one really earned its extra time with how interesting the conversation was. Actual conflict (however small) in a showcase episode really made my day, strange as that sounds.

    I had noticed Dave’s attitude toward luck in past episodes, but didn’t realize how deep that view went. Anyhow, it made for some great listening and learning.

      There was definitely a lot going on in this interview. Chris in an intriguing guy with some unique perspectives… and we always want to open up new lines of thought for our crew.

      And yeah… my issues with “luck” versus “skill” are deep and twisty, but I thought Chris handled it extremely well.

  2. Rowan says:

    This was spectacular. I have read most of his books more than once and Lamb is one of my all time favorites. His tongue-in-cheek approach to interpreting life is unique and hilarious. Thank you for this. I learned of your show through Christopher Moore’s Facebook page and I am now a fan of the show too!

    • Dave Robison says:

      Outstanding, Rowan… glad you enjoyed the interview and we’re delighted to have you among the RTP crew! :D

  3. Not quite to my taste, but a fine interview. I look forward to how and what Christopher does in the workshop episode.

    • Dave Robison says:

      Thanks, Paul. Out of curiosity, was it Chris’s fiction or something in the interview that didn’t line up for you?

    “Do something we have never done before”

    I bet I know!

  5. Morrow says:

    Short sweet and to the point, Great Interview!

  6. Krissy Bee says:

    I absolutely adore Mr. Moore. I have every one of his books and have read them several times, took a break from rereading Fool just to listen. Great stuff!!!!

    Big fan of Chris’s work, found this podcast via Twitter

    You seemed to have skipped over the alcoholism part..? Chris mentions it in his bio and interviews (including a brief mention in your interview as well) I would’ve liked to explore that a little further. He once said “so I quit drinking and started writing”. Just curious if he put the bottle and/or drugs down forever or just at first. I bet he smokes weed though ;)

  8. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was
    wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  9. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I
    thought this post was great. I do not know who you are
    but definitely you’re going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already ;) Cheers!
