Dorothy Rosby is an author, speaker and syndicated humor columnist whose work appears in publications throughout the West and Midwest. We are happy to have her on this episode talking about writing humor and the pressure of the holidays.
The book is described on her website “as a collection of humorous essays about holidays, special occasions and other times our celebrations make us feel not-so-celebratory. It’s understanding for those who think Christmas form letters can be honest—or they can be interesting. And it’s empathy for anyone who’s ever gotten poison ivy during Nude Recreation Week or eaten all their Halloween candy and had to hand out instant oatmeal packets to their trick-or-treaters.”

Billy Dees and then Kristy Mickelsen each give their core presentations which together run approximately 40 minutes into the episode. Then, a conversation opens up with a live studio audience which was facilitated via Twitter Spaces. The podcast was recorded in studio with an audio feed brought in from Twitter for a question-and-answer segment.
Twitter Spaces is a form of the burgeoning medium of social audio. In short, hosts can create audio spaces for presentations and talks. Billy Dees was recently named one of the top voices in social audio by the Global Interview based in Ireland.
Some time ago, many years ago actually, I crossed paths with Donna Cavanagh on Twitter. We were both part of the Twittersphere for blogging, humor, and related subject matter. We say “content” now by the way.
Post 2012, podcasting was ramping up as high-ranking politicians were giving interviews and major crime investigations were finding an audience on the medium. Twitter is built for authors and podcasters. Donna, being the consummate book marketing specialist that she is, was one of the publishers who first recognized the connection.
This was circa 2011 andHumorOutcasts was in its early days. I started doing some writing for the site and most of my audio production at that time was in traditional media forms. Podcasting existed back then but was nowhere near the powerhouse it is today. I was one of the early adopters of podcasting as it was a natural fit for me.
This was a great opportunity for me. By the time 2016 rolled around, Donna and I were producing author interviews regularly. I have made some wonderful associations and friends working with the talented group of HO writers.
Donna has now written and published a children’s book, “Ramo to the Rescue.”The book tells the story of a lifeguard through the lens of a child and is written in poetry style rhymes. The book was inspired by a chance meeting with a lifeguard which Donna describes during her own podcast interview. She also credits many of the people who helped her produce the book including Hannah Farr, who created the illustrations.
You can find the full interview under the Billy Dees Podcast on your favorite podcasting platform. We also have a Spotify player for you in this post as well as the webcam version on YouTube.
Content Warning: This episode contains discussion that some survivors may find triggering. It also contains spoilers regarding the content of the book.
On this episode we have Deborah Fezelle, who is the author of, “What’s Past is Prologue.” Deborah is a frequent guest of the podcast and a familiar author to many readers. She has an incredible resume in the arts and is a graduate of Juilliard. Deborah has worked as an actress, a director and coach, and as a writer. This book is the latest installment of the Nick McDeare Series.
This book, because of its subject-matter, was written to be more of a stand-alone piece than the other McDeare installments. Deborah describes this book as a personal “triumph” because she had to work through her own history of trauma to carry the reader on a similar journey with the characters.
It is a very sincere and heartfelt discussion, however, as the trigger warning indicates; it contains mature subject matter.
This podcast was produced in conjunction with HumorOutcasts.com, HOPress-Shorehouse Books, and other HO brands and publishing divisions.
You can find this episode titled, “HumorOutcasts Interview with Deborah Fezelle – What’s Past is Prologue” on almost any major podcast network under the Billy Dees Podcast.
