Interview with Barry Lyga

| E:100

100 episodes! That's a big round number. On this, our first episode in the triple digits, Jill and Adam chat with Barry Lyga, best selling author of harrowing Young Adult books including I Hunt Killers and Boy Toy. His latest novel, BANG, comes out on April 18th. This heartbreaking novel tells the story of Sebastian who, at the age of 4, accidentally shoots and kills his infant daughter with his father's gun. Ten years later, Sebastian is still grappling with this tragedy and doesn't know how to make things better.

This conversation isn't ALL heavy. We also talk pizza, comics, podcasting and much more. Join us as we enter the realm of the 100's, aging gracefully like a fine wine.
