NYC — Andrew Weatherhead was born in Chicago, Illinois. He is the author of $50,000 (2020), Todd (2018) and Cats & Dogs (2014). He began writing $50,000 in 2015.

Andrew Weatherhead - The Origin of the World

Me Reading Stuff

Today I tell the story of “Barry”, a man who offered to pay me $40,000 for 2 hours of work. Nope, it wasn’t for sex work! Listen to this podcast to find out what he wanted me to do. But more importantly, listen to hear from TODD: “Even when your own biography is breaking and entering into taboo areas, blazing and stabbing and juicing the days into their glistening parts our stories deepen as they go, finally revealing something not unlike the origin of the world.” Andrew WeatherheadLINKS:Buy Andrew Weatherhead’s book TODD here: https://monsterhousepress.com/books/todd-andrew-weatherheadFollow Andrew on Twitter: https://twitter.com/weeatherhead?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5EauthorFollow Andrew on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/weeatherhead/TODD release party in NYC: https://www.facebook.com/events/1794628867506303/Go to Matthew Sontheimer’s show at The Union in Omaha, NE! http://www.u-ca.org/exhibition/
