Though I enjoy traveling, I am always thrilled to return home to the Cincinnati, Ohio, area where Lucy and I have lived since 1996 (she’s a third or fourth generation local; I’m the transplant). After 18 years here, I’m a huge fan of the city’s history, architecture and woodworking heritage.
While outsiders see the the city as a cultural backwater or (at best) the setting for the television comedy “WKRP in Cincinnati,” I see the place through a different lens. The food, building stock and (yes) the beer are utterly intoxicating for someone who loves those sorts of things.
And writers (Lucy is also a writer) can actually afford to live here. Amazing.
Recently I was invited to an interview with Lee Hay, who hosts a radio program called “Around Cincinnati.” We talked about Lost Art Press, woodworking and how it relates to my love affair with Cincinnati. It’s a short interview – 10 minutes.
