Episode 367: Whitney Matheson

13Oct

Life was fairly different the last time Whitney Matheson was on the show. In fact, USA Today pulled the plug on her 15 year culture column Pop Candy sometime between the recording of the interview and its publication.  In the intervening half decade, Matheson took up a teaching gig, moved to Tennessee and had a kid “It's funny how life can change on a dime” is how she put it as we were discussing running the original interview. From the sound of things, however, recent changes have been for the best. Now back in the city, Matheson has written a children’s book about comics publishing and started a newsletter that brings Pop Candy’s spirit to a weekly digest. She’s ghostwriting and writing a play in her spare time after some hard learned lessons about not taking any of it for granted.
