Craft Podcast

Hosted by Doug Dangler, Craft features interviews with authors, songwriters, and other creative people.

His current How Are You Doing series features discussions with central Ohio businesses to find out how they're weathering the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Continuing with my How’s It Going? series on local small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, I spoke with Lauren Powers from The Buckeye Dog Grooming in Clintonville. Listen in to hear about the changes necessary to keep pets and their owners safe, as well as what the best way to keep your dog looking good between groomings (hint: it’s something you should be doing anyway).

Author Rachel Lynn Solomon has written four young adult books. Her debut adult novel, The Ex Talk, is a Library Reads January 2021 pick. Solomon worked in public radio in college and in her 20s. She shares with Doug how she drew on this experience for the book.

Steve Berry is a former attorney, an internationally renowned thriller writer, and founder of History Matters. He has over 20 million books in print in over 50 countries and 40 different languages. As part of his tour for his latest, The Kaiser’s Web, he will appear virtually with the Thurber House on February 26.

If you’re looking for a break from the various crises filling our lives right now, you might find some solace in reading up on a volatile moment in the United States’ past. This week we talk to Columbus author Karin Cecile Davidson on her first novel, Sybelia Drive, which released on October 6th from Braddock Avenue Books. 

The incredible impact of COVID-19 has been felt by everyone but few have been hit as hard as restaurants, live performance venues, and other public gathering places. Charlie Jackson, part owner of Natalie’s Coal Fired Pizza in Worthington and Grandview, talks with Doug about the impact of the shutdown and the innovations this local business has put in place.
