Minutes from Latvia podcast 21: Tom Crosshill on writing and pensions
Minutes from Latvia
Podcast number 21 sees Renaissance man Tom Crosshill (a.k.a. Toms Kreicbergs) entering the pod to talk about his dizzying array of interests. The first half of the podcast is dedicated to Tom's activities as a successful fiction writer in various genres: science fiction, young adults' fiction and most recently as the author of The Cattle Express, a remarkable tale that takes the reader from Wall Street to the Siberian Deportations. In the second half of the podcast we consider Latvia's pension system, and specifically Indexo, a new presence in the pensions market with which Tom is involved. He also briefly explains how he came to be licensed to operate a nuclear reactor. You can read more about Tom's literary creations HERE. The website of Indexo pensions (other pension plans are available) is HERE (in Latvian and Russian). We hope you enjoy the podcast.
Our seventh podcast for September is “The Dark City Luminous” written by Tom Crosshill and read by Kate Baker.First published in The Baltic Atlas (Sternberg Press), for the exhibition of the Baltic States Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2016.Subscribe to our podcast.
Paul Davery has a problem. His mind was just hijacked, and while he was out, his body murdered his best friend. Now, he's in a desperate search to discover who is responsible before the authorities find out and throw him in jail.Also, Rish talks about his aversion to Cyberpunk, and Big calls himself a "craphole." Then they argue about James Cameron's Avatar, which they went to together, and Rish rambles semi-offensively for a while. They may mention their worst moviegoing experiences in there somewhere.Special thanks to Liz Mierzejewski, Julie Hoverson and Josh Roseman for lending their voices to this episode.
