Catie Lazarus David Simon

Catie welcomes David Simon, an absolute mensch. Simon is the creator of The Wire, Treme, and the upcoming HBO series The Deuce. He’s the author of two books including Homicide: A Year On The Killing Streets which he also adapted for television. He’s McArthur Fellow, a former journalist at the Baltimore Sun City Desk, and soon to be a touring musician with the Employee of the Month house band, though not really, but he could if he wanted to and we prove it. Catie shows off her research chops with some of her own deep cuts into Simon’s origins.

Also this week Catie and the Employee of the Month podcast join the Headgum network! Check it out at headgum.com
