Where you live in the United States determines whether “coke” means Coca-Cola or “every single carbonated beverage.” It can also mean the difference between sauce on your pizza or nothing, the difference between honor killings or, uh, not honor killings, and the difference between a time machine and an … ATM?

THIS WEEK ON THE PODCAST: author Colin Woodard (author of American Nations) joins Kristi Harrison, David Wong, and Jack O’Brien to dig into how the very first settlers in each part of America formatted its whole figurative hard drive, and how who conquered your home area determines your own views on government, law, and so much more.

Pop or Soda? Why Region Is More Important Than You Think

Woodard lived in Lawrence, Kansas in 1997 and visited William Burroughs regularly. Woodard made the dreamachines displayed at a major LA exhibition of Burroughs’ paintings, Ports of Entry, and the one used at Burroughs’ funeral. He has since auctioned off one machine through Sotheby’s, and he’s now writing a book on the Dreammachine, the flicker phenomena and other unorthodox ideas and inventions, to be published by Feral House at some point in time.

Who is Literary Video?

My name is David Woodard, and Literary Video is my new blog. 

I am an award-winning video director and editor having had the good fortune of being successfully employed as an independent video producer since the Fall of 2007. My understanding of story and how to tell a it in a compelling way has given my clients a leading edge in investing in video content that communicates and sells their message. I have had the disctint privilege to partner with such fine publishers as Thomas Nelson Publishers, Waterbrook Multnomah, Revell, Abingdon Press, Brazos Press, and B&H Publishing Group as well as such publishing luminaries as Max Lucado, Donald Miller, Beth Moore, Henry Blackaby, Michael Hyatt, and many others.

A marketing veteran, prior to being self-employed, I was part of the trade book marketing team at B&H Publishing Group of LifeWay Christian Resources. I participated in the marketing effort for five New York Times bestsellers and countless CBA best-sellers. At B&H, I produced countless promotional videos seen online, in sales presentations, promotional DVDs, podcasts, author websites, and trade show booth displays around the globe.

I look forward to using this blog to share with book marketers, sellers, and authors the wisdom and perspective gained from my unique experiences in the publishing world.
