The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, With C. J. Box

We taped Episode 15 of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience last night. The podcast features a very fun interview with author C.J. Box (“Chuck” to his friends).

I really do recommend Back of Beyond. It is a good place to start if you are new to Box’s work.
