New podcast features Nashville Typewriter, Tom Hanks, Olympias, and the Manifesto

Thanks to Jakob Lewis for including me in his great new podcast for the Goethe Institut. The podcast is in English, but the written introduction is in German. In case you don't know that language, it says:

Searching for an alternative to the nearly overwhelming efficiency of the digital, Jakob Lewis runs into the "typosphere," an online community for people who don't just collect typewriters but also enthusiastically write on them. After acquiring several typewriters and even writing a letter to Tom Hanks on one of them, Jakob is completely converted to analog text production. 

And yes, after recording his podcast, he did get a response.

Listen now!


  1. Loved it! Jakob put together a great story. Very well done. What a talented guy!

  2. I don't tend to listen to podcasts. Most that I have listened to haven't exactly left me wanting more. This particular example put together by Jakob Lewis proved to be an exception. He did a great job with this. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Now, there's a fun journey! :D

  4. Love it! Such an endearing and well done podcast. Another great instance of Our Story.
