In the first episode of 2016 Mike and Patrick are joined Chris Simmons to discuss his serial fiction novel Alchem the Alchemist, what kind of beverages you should drink while writing, his greatest fears as a writer, and editing while inebriated. In the second half, they all discuss a recent proclamation by the leader of a right-wing Jewish group that Christians are “vampires.” From circumcision to gunpowder, this episode sets 2016 off on a high point, but it’s all downhill from here.


The bearded dude on this page is Don, a good friend and All Downhill listener. To understand why this picture is here, you’ll need to listen to the episode. There is context, even if not a whole lot of it.
