Prop Anon discusses the upcoming RAW biography


Prop Anon aka Gabriel Kennedy is interviewed in a new episode of the podcast Spotlight On. It should be available wherever you get your podcasts, but I've also obviously posted the video, or you can read the transcript.  The focus naturally is on Robert Anton Wilson, and Prop's new book about RAW, due out in February. The title is Chapel Perilous: The Life and Thought Crimes of Robert Anton Wilson. I can't wait to read the book, but the interview is a nice preview. The podcast has been around for awhile -- I notice it is episode 23 of the ninth season. The show is hosted by Lawrence Peryer.

I also learned a bit more about Prop, too: " I was born in Long Island, New York, and was raised by two Irish immigrants who came to New York and opened bars. So, I was raised in a bar family. I have many memories of sitting at the end of the bar while my parents were working and observing people in that setting. I was always around stories in a way; listening to people speak at the bar as a young kid was educational."
