Connected with my research into student-athletes and the literate practices of college sports, I have been thinking a great deal about people delivering writing through their body. I want to know more about how words move from being inscribed on a page, on a screen, to being orally delivered.
I have interviewed Jeff Crook, the senior pastor at Blackshear Place Baptist Church, Lindsey Allgood, an Oklahoma-based performance artist, Chris Faulkner, the head basketball coach at the University of North Georgia, and, now, comedian John Crist.
Below is the soundcloud.com link to an excerpt of my conversation with John. Check out johncristcomedy.com to learn more about John’s comedy.
