My friend Jett Loe

My ex-colleague and friend Jett Loe has taken to producing a podcast from Belfast (Letter To America) where he is currently stationed. His main marketing tool seems to be writing to people in his address book and saying “You get mentioned in Chapter X, check it out buddy” (full transcript below). So far I’ve listened to 3 episodes on this basis and still no mention. It reminds me of the two rival authors in a Martin Amis book (The Information)where one anonymously delivers a copy of the New York Times (a big fucker of a newspaper) to the other one with a note saying “There’s something in here that’ll interest you” figuring in his vanity he’ll spend days crawling through the columns looking for references. BUT then the first author worries that there might really be a mention of his rival and spends hours pawing over the paper to make sure there are no references. Not that me and Jett are rivals, of course. Chapter 8, the very best one so far, is excellent.

The Transcript in Full:
“went for a piss…man – every second of the show is gold!
forget about episode 7 – listen to episode 8 – think you get a mention
in that too
