Love & Defiance Podcast


Love & Defiance podcast cover

This is the Humber School for Writers Love & Defiance podcast. I’m David Bezmozgis, creative director of the Humber School for Writers. The Love & Defiance podcast features Humber students and graduates who’ve lived interesting or extraordinary lives and who have brought those experiences into their writing.

Episode 1 (audio/mpeg)

David Bezmozgis speaks with Jillian Stirk about her experience as a young diplomat in Warsaw during the Solidarity movement and how the letters she wrote home to her parents formed the basis of her novel, Small Ironies.

Episode 2 (audio/mpeg)

David Bezmozgis speaks with Colin Buchanan about his novel, Yellow Women's Doorbells, which takes us from personal heartbreak and institutionalization into the hidden heart of the deep South.
