On Friday, I had a great conversation with award-winning journalist, Trish Wood, on her podcast Trish Wood is Critical, which you can subscribe to here. We talked about everything COVID, mass psychosis and menticide, to staying strong in these dystopian times.
When Trish introduced me: “If Hunter Thompson were still alive and not drug-addled and a woman, writing about the time in which we live now, he might be Karen Hunt,” my first thought was, is there some other Hunter Thompson I don’t know about? But then I realized, yes, she knows how to connect the dots. It’s definitely being added to my bio.
Thompson’s reflection in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, (“Maybe it meant something. Maybe not, in the long run, but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant.”) could just as equally describe the craziness of Utopian Madness and my adventures during the pandemic while living in Luxor, Egypt, chronicled in Porn Stars on Holiday.
