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.
