I announce an shift for the show going forward. 

Jacob and I discuss his writing origins, the dangers of having heroes, the growth of slam poets.

Zach shares with me his favorite word, I get a little fanboyish failing to pigeonhole his work (beyond the humor of course.) He shares the origin of Old School Language and how post-internet Zach differs from pre-internet Zach.
