About Featherproof Press: According to its mission statement, Chicago’s Featherproof Press publishes strange and beautiful fiction and nonfiction and post-, trans-, and inter-genre tragicomedy. The Featherproof podcast expands on this sensibility by interviewing guests that we know to have interesting stories whether or not they identify as writers or artists or performers or exist as public figures in any way.
