I had never seen Mark Shapiro tell a story and my hope is that we’ll come up with another theme that catches his fancy and soon. He poo-pooed the microphone and so you might have to plug in the earphones to hear this one well, but it’s worth a listen, as it’s a crazy story of hitch-hiking and good luck and bad luck and a lost backpack.
Mark Shapiro has been living in Austin for somewhat over a year now. He works in the music business. He likes Austin but says: “Not that weird.” He says that as far as he can tell, the weirdest thing about Austin is that people like to call the rivers lakes.
