In this episode of Gweek, Rob and I spoke with Adam Parfrey and Jodi Wille, proprietors of the non-fiction book publishers, Feral House and Process Media.
I wrote the folllowing about Adam and Jodi a couple of years ago:
Some of the most interesting books in the world are being published by Feral House and Process Books.

A simple alphabetical listing of just about every First through Fifth order-of-interest […]
Abuses in my youth have left me in a lot of pain. Robin McKenzie’s Treat Your Own Back helped me more than any doctor. I was desperately searching for an option other than letting doctors I do not trust operate on my spine. In response, a friend sent me a copy of this book. Spine, […]
Bamboo has lots of uses beyond just being panda food. Things like bikes, roads, scaffolding, and musical instruments are made from the fast-growing grass. But unless you are participating in a tropical-themed LARP, you probably wouldn’t want a shirt made from bamboo stalks. So why do bamboo bed sheets make any sense? Because yarn extracted from […]
If you want to work in tech, but don’t have any desire to code web apps to help businesses sell things to other business, you might want to consider a career in cybersecurity.
