Episode 54 - David Gates: Part 5

5Aug

In the final part of David Gates' episode of Writing Life, we begin by exploring the question of religion that we failed to address in Part 4. 'I am not a religious person. I am to some degreee obsessed with it.'
From there we move to:

  • American gospel songs and the transcendent
  • Gates' links to The Mayflower ('he was the first man hanged in the New World')
  • 'It's an interest I have cultivated to make myself interesting'
  • Gates on Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton (from 2015)
  • David Gates' writing life - pen or computer?
  • 'When I am desperate, I will pretty much try anything'
  • Gates on the internet
  • (finally) does music help or hinder?
