A rare live episode of the Longform Podcast with all three hosts—Aaron Lammer, Max Linsky and Evan Ratliff—interviewing a trio of legendary Texan magazine writers. Longtime Texas Monthly executive editors Pamela Colloff and Mimi Swartz were both recipients of National Magazine Awards from ASME last year. (Read Pam’s winning story here, and Mimi’s here.) Lawrence Wright, a Texas Monthly alum, is a staff writer at the New Yorker and the winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for his book, The Looming Tower. His National Magazine Award-winning story from 2011 about the Church of Scientology became his most recent book, Going Clear.

Texas Monthly and ASME bring you an evening of cold beer, hot queso, BBQ, country music, and high quality SXSW schmooze.

Music by James Hand, the star of the 2014 film Thank You A Lot, which is premiering at the festival on Friday, March 7.
