Why would a New York Times best-selling author wait nine years to release his next title? Today we talk about that with Ira Wagler, also discussing the difficulty in writing about the people you love, why he enjoys his day job (which isn’t writing), and why Maile wasn’t invited back to his famous summer barbecues.
You can check out Ira’s new book, Broken Roads, HERE.

There’s an almost masturbatory quality to this interview in gratuitously worshipping the idea of publishing a book, but zero substance about Ira or the Amish, or anything. Pretty ironic considering Wagler prides himself on not being one of those vacuous literary types. Hilarious
I’m sorry it wasn’t your cup of tea. Thanks for checking out our podcast and giving it a listen.
