As part of our effort to participate in the ongoing audio/video revolution that’s sweeping through the Internet, The Missouri Review offers its latest podcast. While previous editions have featured TMR writers reading from their work, with this edition, a pair of TMR interns chat with Steve Almond, which inevitably means conversation about sex. And chocolate. As well as fiction. The writing of it. The reading of it.

Almond is the author of the short story collections, My Life in Heavy Metal and The Evil B.B. Chow, as well as Candy Freak: A Journey Through the Chocolate Underbelly of America. His most recent publication, Which Brings Me to You, is a novel co-written with Julianna Baggott. Almond has published four stories in The Missouri Review since 2000; most recently, “My Mouth, Her Sex, The Night, My Heart,” which appeared in 28:1 (2005). He is a past recipient of the annual Peden Prize from TMR.
