The Outrider Podcast: Episode 20: Pauls Toutonghi

Posted on July 14, 2014 by


In this episode I talk with the wonderful Pauls Toutonghi about sleeping babies, family vacations, growing up in Seattle, Michael Ondaatje, getting sober, and what kids do at Latvian summer camp.

Pauls is the author of two novels, Red Weather and Evel Knievel Days. Pauls’ fiction and essays have appeared in many periodicals, even earning him a Pushcart Prize. He teaches at Lewis and Clark College in Portland Oregon.

You can learn more about Pauls at his website and you can read the L.A. Review of Books piece that we talk about at the beginning of the show here.
