PubCrawl Podcast: Publishing 101 Querying & Representation

Hey all! JJ here. Here at PubCrawl we’re super excited to introduce some new and awesome developments that have been brewing for a while, the chiefest of which is a PODCAST. That’s right, we are getting to the podcasting game, mostly because Kelly and I are podcast junkies with Lots of Opinions. Anyway, enjoy our inaugural episode and please don’t judge too harshly!

Apologies for some audio issues. Apparently JJ needs to wear tight-fitting clothes so the sound of cloth rubbing against the desk doesn’t get picked up by her fancy-schmancy mic. This is a work in progress.

Show Notes

What We’re Working On

Kelly’s sourdough bread!

My first sourdough ever, and made with my own starter! If all goes well tomorrow there will be bread. #feedthebitch

JJ’s Whiskey-Drinking Chair

Who knew reupholstering an armchair would be so messy? Finally got this sucker stripped down.

It probably wasn’t my smartest idea to reupholster an armchair without first learning how. #jjsdiy A photo posted by JJ (@sjaejones) on

That’s it for this week! Next week, we’ll be discussing SUBMISSIONS AND ACQUISITIONS. As always, if you have any questions or comments, sound off in the comments, or ask us on Tumblr!

We are working on getting a feed up to iTunes, so bear with us! We promise we’re on it; it’s just that the technical aspects of all this is somewhat new to us. 🙂
  1. DO NOT LOOK UP THE BROADWAY VERSION. Despite having Michael Crawford and Rene Auberjonois, it was…terrible.

    Pushing a microphone and pop filter up on my priority list, for sure. But hooray for the first episode!

      We will sort out our audio issues eventually! There is a steep learning curve to podcasting, man.

    This is great! Just so you know, there is a “Pub Crawl” podcast on iTunes. I subscribed to it by mistake while looking for yours.

    Thanks for letting us know! We’ll find a unique name for iTunes and let y’all know when it’s up!
