The Show

The Martin Lastrapes Show Podcast Hour is the show that may or may not be an hour long, based on your perception of time and how much Martin has to say. It's both a silly and earnest look into the mind of award-winning novelist Martin Lastrapes. Martin loves engaging in in-depth conversations about writing, storytelling, publishing, and most anything else he finds interesting—from movies and television to professional wrestling and comic books.

Justine is an aspiring stand-up comedian and true crime fanatic who takes life on with just a little too much anxiety and paranoia.
