One Thing or Another Podcast: An Interview with Matt Lubbers-Moore, Gay Mystery Bibliographer

Matt Lubbers-Moore surrounded by books

I’m delighted to share my recent One Thing or Another Podcast interview with Matt Lubbers-Moore, a bibliophile and mystery aficionado with an encyclopedic knowledge of both the bibliomystery and gay mystery genres. His devotion to the latter has resulted in his creation of an online bibliography of gay mysteries, reflecting a labor of love and a commitment to scholarship in the subject.

Fasten your headphones as I talk with Matt about his life, career, love of gay mysteries, and an opinion or two.

One Thing or Another Podcast: An Interview with Author Michael Craft


It’s a great pleasure to welcome author Michael Craft for the latest One Thing or Another interview. I’ve known Michael for several years now, since his short story Frog Legs appeared in an anthology I published and edited. It was also my first encounter with his characters Marson Miles and Brody Norris, who later became the central characters in his novels Inside Dumont: A Novel in Stories, and his latest, the murder mystery FlabberGassed: A Mister Puss Mystery.

Listen in as we talk about Michael’s life, career, books and plans for the future.

One Thing or Another Podcast: An Interview with Dave Hughes of Retire Fabulously


By Mark McNease

I’ve been a fan of Dave Hughes and his RetireFabulously.com website for the past five years, devouring and recommending his advice columns to everyone who’s listening. Dave has two books out that are indispensable for those in retirement and those of us (ahem) hoping to retire soon: Design Your Dream Retirement: How to Envision, Plan For, and Enjoy the Best Retirement Possible and the followup, Smooth Sailing into Retirement: How to Navigate the Transition from Work to Leisure.

It’s always a pleasure to chat with Dave, and a delight to have him on the podcast. On this outing we talk about retirement (of course), why LGBTQ/gay safe spaces can be a factor in vacation planning, and a topic dear to both our hearts: writing! Sit back, adjust the volume, and fasten your headphones.

One Thing or Another Podcast: An Interview with Molly DeVoss, Cat Behaviorist


By Mark McNease

This week’s interview sheds light on an animal many of us share our lives with and many others consider mysterious: the cat. Having recently adopted a new one named Wilma who came from a hoarder situation, I found myself in need of help and was fortunate enough to be put in touch with Molly DeVoss. The results have been amazing.

After speaking and emailing with Molly about our new cat’s issues and how to resolve them, I had the pleasure of interviewing her. She’s as knowledgeable and generous with her time and expertise as she is kind and outgoing, and I know listeners will get as much from this chat with Molly as I did.

Be sure to check out her organization, Cat Behavior Solutions (catbehaviorsolutions.org), and consider making a donation when you stop by.

I’m excited to announce the launch of my new interview-only podcast, One Thing or Another (it gets its name from the column I’ve been writing for several years now). “Just me, a guest, a microphone, and you.” I’ll be doing these at least twice a month, possibly weekly as it gets up and rolling.

My first guest is Holly Palance, audiobook narrator, actor, writer, and the superb voice for the audiobook edition of my latest, Black Cat White Paws: A Maggie Dahl Mystery.
