John Anealio

John Anealio – musician, composer, and geek balladeer who has crafted such classics as “Steampunk Girl“, “George RR Martin is Not Your Bitch“, and so many more – is not someone you’d expect to find on a writing podcast. And yet, John’s life of exploring the creation and performance of music has given him some astonishing experiences and insights into the storyteller’s craft. On top of those credentials, he has massive geek and literary cred from his tenure as founder and co-host of the fabulous Functional Nerds podcast! Brion and I were delighted to share a marvelous 20(ish) minutes of conversation with John, exploring the parallels of music and literature, his approach to the craft of storytelling through music, and more! (and things are definitely gonna get interesting in John’s Workshop Episode!)

  1. Fascinating episode with an excellent musician.

    Brion made me cheer when he mentioned Harry Chapin. He’s a favorite of mine.

    Keep up the good work guys!

  2. I learned a new word: prosody. Thanks for that.

    I’ve always known what it was. I just never knew what to call it. I’ve always loved singers who master it like Ani Difranco and Ellis Paul. They always find the perfect words, the ones that make it seem effortless.
