Can you believe it? Worldview Academy faculty member Mark Bertrand has been very busy — so much so that he recently published his third crime novel, Nothing to Hide. In this episode of Radio Worldview, host Jeff Baldwin chats with Mark about his novel, focusing especially on its literary antecedents, which remarkably include both Dante’s Divine Comedy and the Song of Roland. Before this happens, though, Jeff and Mark set a new world record for longest “Roadkill Cafe” segment, wherein they discuss the phenomenon of Tim Horton’s, Niagara Falls, and a small ice cream cone as big as your head.

If you missed Part One of this podcast, take a moment now to listen to last week’s episode of Radio Worldview. If you already heard Part One, you know what to expect here: host Jeff Baldwin leads fellow faculty members Jay Winslow and Mark Bertrand through a discussion of the best short stories for teaching young writers the craft of writing a story. But before the discussion begins, Jeff tries to open up to Mark, who summarily shuts things down.
Perfect timing! Author and Worldview Academy faculty member Mark Bertrand just released his third crime novel, Nothing to Hide, yesterday — and today we have him on Radio Worldview, discussing the art of the short story. But that’s not all: Jay Winslow, a literature teacher and another Worldview faculty member, joins Jeff and Mark in the conversation. Get out your pencil (or your keypad) — you’re going to want to jot down lots of the titles mentioned in this episode.
