Shootin’ It with Jayme K. | Episode 65: “Aaron Novy”

This week Jayme and Mike chat with artist/writer Aaron Novy (who happens to be a Shootin’ It superfan). They discuss the bizarre, desolate town of Christmas Valley, where Novy resides in a hut made of mud and tires. They also talk about the best and worst guests to have appeared on Shootin’ It, weird urban legends, the legend of Sasquatch, meeting women online, and a lot more.

*Also, ignore Jayme’s error in labeling this episode 64 in the opening of the show.

Bud Smith has a new novel coming out, F250, which is getting so much killer feedback that its release promises to be an event similar in grandeur to, say, a Road Rules/Real World Challenge finale. To pump myself up, I reviewed his previous novel, Tollbooth, for Sundog Lit.
