A couple weeks ago, B.J. Love’s girlfriend Erika Jo Brown moved many miles away to Savannah, Georgia, to begin a new job. B.J.’s a little bit at a loss without her; he misses the post-its Erika used to leave around their house, he misses making food together, and, well, he just misses her. B.J’ll join Erika in Savannah for good in a few weeks, but for now he uses, among other mediums, GChat, poetry, and postcards to reassure her that he’s still there for her. B.J. also settles the question, once and for all: If your last name is Love and you’re a poet, are all your poems automatically love poems?

2pm every Saturday at 89.7, KRUI. The second episode of the season features fiction writer Merritt Tierce. Merritt kept a secret WordPress of letters addressed to the girlfriend of the man she was dating, and yesterday, she shared the letters publicly for the first time. The episode is available for download and listening here. (Be sure to right-click the small “Click here to start download from sendspace” in the small blue box, not the obnoxious ads. At least until I figure out how to establish a podcast.)
