Hello and welcome to The Rob Burgess Show. I am, of course, your host, Rob Burgess.
On this our 90th episode, our returning guest is Mallory Willits Gakpo.
You first heard her on Episode 7 and Episode 47 of the podcast. (And if you haven't heard those episodes you should probably go back and listen to them before starting this one.)
In her first appearance, she told us about meeting her now husband, Wisdom, in Ghana.

On this, our 89th episode our returning guest is Sarah Kendzior. You first heard Sarah Kendzior on Episode 70 and Episode 80 of the podcast.
Here’s her biography:
“I am a writer. I am best known for my critical take on the 'prestige economy,' my reporting on St. Louis, my coverage of the 2016 election, and my academic research on authoritarian states in Central Asia.
“My best-selling essay collection, The View From Flyover Country, was published as an ebook in 2015. An updated version of the book is being released by Macmillan Publishers in April 2018, with new material on the Trump administration — how America got here, and where we’re going. Pre-order your copy today!
“I am currently an op-ed columnist for the Globe and Mail, where I focus on U.S. politics. I also am the US correspondent for the Dutch news outlet De Correspondent. Previously I was an op-ed columnist for Al Jazeera English, where I wrote about exploitation, particularly in higher education, the diminishing opportunities of America’s youth, and gentrification. I have also covered internet privacy, political repression, and how the media shape public perception. My April 2013 article 'The wrong kind of Caucasian' is the most popular AJE op-ed of all time.
“I have also written for POLITICO, Quartz, Fast Company, The Chronicle of Higher Education, The Guardian, Foreign Policy, The Diplomat, Marie Claire, The Atlantic, Medium, Radio Free Europe, POLITICO Europe, The Chicago Tribune, The Baffler, NBC News, Blue Nation Review, Alive Magazine, Ethnography Matters, The Common Reader, The New York Daily News, La Stampa, Slate, World Policy Journal, The Brooklyn Quarterly, Centre for International Governance Innovation, Teen Vogue, City AM, Opinio Juris, HRDCVR, World Politics Review and The New York Times.
“In August 2013, Foreign Policy named me one of 'the 100 people you should be following on Twitter to make sense of global events.' In October 2013, St. Louis Magazine profiled me as one of 15 inspirational people under 35 in St. Louis. In September 2014, The Riverfront Times named me the best online journalist in St. Louis. In June 2017, St. Louis Magazine named me the best journalist in St. Louis.
“In addition to working as a journalist, I am a researcher and consultant. I have a PhD in anthropology from Washington University in Saint Louis and an MA in Central Eurasian Studies from Indiana University. Most of my work focuses on the authoritarian states of the former Soviet Union and how the internet affects political mobilization, self-expression, and trust.
“My research has been published in American Ethnologist, Problems of Post-Communism, Central Asian Survey, Demokratizatsiya, Nationalities Papers, Social Analysis, and the Journal of Communication. I am a program associate for the Central Asia Program at the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University, and a research associate at the Russian, East European and Eurasian Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
“I am frequently interviewed by the media and have been a guest on NPR, MSNBC, Al Jazeera, CBC News, BBC World Service and other broadcast outlets, and am a recurring guest on the MSNBC show 'AM Joy.' I have given talks all over the world as an invited speaker at academic conferences and forums on foreign policy, politics, education and technology.
“I occasionally serve as an expert witness in asylum cases involving applicants from Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan.”
Two programming notes before we begin: We recorded this conversation on Wednesday evening. On Thursday, Ryan Grim of The Intercept reported Sam Seder will be offered his MSNBC contributor job back and plans to accept. Also, on Thursday, Democratic Minnesota Sen. Al Franken announced he would resign in the coming weeks.

Ep. 88 - Carlos Dengler [II]

Hello and welcome to The Rob Burgess Show. I am, of course, your host, Rob Burgess.
On this, our 88th episode, our returning guest is Carlos Dengler. You first heard Carlos Dengler on Episode 87 of the podcast.
Carlos Dengler is a working actor and musician in New York City. He is currently working on his memoir detailing his time spent as bass player and keyboardist for the alt-rock group Interpol, from 1998 to 2010. After leaving the band, Carlos enrolled at Stella Adler Studio of Acting and then was fortunate to have been accepted to NYU Grad Acting, where he received his MFA in Acting in 2015. Since graduation, Carlos has been working in the theatre, creating and launching a successful one-man show called “Homo Sapiens Interruptus” for the NY International Fringe Festival of 2016, and cast in a recent production of “A Babylon Line” by the great playwright Richard Greenberg at Lincoln Center Theater featuring actor Josh Radnor in the lead. In early 2016, Carlos appeared briefly on “The Late Night with Seth Meyers” show, filling in on bass guitar with The 8G Band, the Seth Meyers house band. Carlos has also spent time crafting his approach to memoir writing. He was recently published by the literary magazine N+1 with an essay, “Stories of Excess.” He is currently finishing up the first stages of a publishing deal for his upcoming book, detailing his time in the band, his personal life and childhood, and his observations upon leaving behind life in the music industry. Carlos is an avid tweeter, with an unabashed progressive liberal swing to his thought, and is a lay but voracious consumer of current political thought. You can follow him there @denglercarlos.

Ep. 87 - Carlos Dengler

                                         Photo by: Craig Johnston
Hello and welcome to The Rob Burgess Show. I am, of course, your host, Rob Burgess.
On this, our 87th episode, our guest is Carlos Dengler.
Here is his biography:
In 1998 I co-founded the band Interpol with Daniel Kessler and Paul Banks. Sam Fogarino joined in 2000, and over the next decade we went on to release four studio albums and tour the world three times, playing numerous festivals, live radio shows and late night TV. Interpol’s first two albums have gone Gold in the United States and the band is regarded as a seminal indie rock band of the early millennium.
In 2007, I began experiencing personal and creative differences with my bandmates and the music industry. In 2009, the band entered group therapy to try to find a way to resolve those differences. Despite our best collective efforts over the course of a year, we could not do so, and I wasn’t able to stay. I left the band just before New Year's Day 2010.
Actor training became my new focus. For the next five years I spent virtually all of my time within the privacy of conservatory classrooms, around other young students who were undergoing a similar process of discovery. In 2012, I was fortunate to be accepted to New York University Graduate Acting and received a Master of Fine Arts degree in the spring of 2015.
I made my professional acting debut in the summer of 2015 at the Dorset Theatre Festival, in the regional premiere of Katie Forgette's very funny 'Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Jersey Lily,' playing two roles – Professor Moriarty's lackey, John Smythe and chief attendant to Queen Victoria, Abdul Karim.
I’ve also begun working on an essayistic memoir. I’m quite excited by some of the directions the work is taking so far. I’ve started soliciting publishers. It’s very early in the process and I will continue to update as things progress.
In late March 2016 I had the honor of performing with the 8G Band, the house band on 'Late Night with Seth Meyers.' It truly was a special experience to play bass guitar with such incredible musicians on such a fun and exciting show.
I was very excited to have presented my solo show, 'Homo Sapiens Interruptus,' at The New York International Fringe Festival in August 2016. The show was created while I was at NYU and had been developing and workshopping it consistently since it began.
"At the end of 2016, I was cast in Richard Greenberg's new play, 'The Babylon Line,' understudying for Josh Radnor at Lincoln Center Theater."
You can catch Carlos this week as he stars in “A Proust Sonata,” a “multimedia concert-theater work conceived and directed by Sarah Rothenberg, artistic and general director of Da Camera. The production is inspired by Marcel Proust's early 20th century masterpiece 'In Search of Lost Time' and interweaves text, music, and image into an innovative multi-media performance.” Performances start at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Lois Chiles Studio Theater at the Moody Center for the Arts at Rice University, 6100 Main St., Houston, Texas. For tickets and more information call 713-348-ARTS or visit their website at https://moody.rice.edu/events/proust-sonata.
