Mental tuning fork

Because the world is weirder than we think.

Prof. Diana Pasulka, from "The Book Encounter." Episode 01 of The Margins.

weird fiction/ non-fiction

Allow me, please. I’m Francesca Robin, a writer and researcher. I produce audio stories, including The Margins: Oddly-Shaped Ideas series, write irreverent nonfiction and musings on anomalous experiences. I also make art and music and audio collage and write under many personae.

Each week I curate Canto Incorrigible, an audio series that includes interviews with artists, filmmakers, musicians, writers, scientists, etc., and stories penned by famous (and not-so-famous) authors and obscure gems worth revisiting. I publish these, and other “findings” in a newletter digest with about four to five items.

If you dig any of this, drop me a line via email or telepathically. Oh, here’s a parting, high-fidelity discovery: To snap into perfect alignment, listen to a Frank Zappa solo while reading a bit of Charles Mingus’ Beneath the Underdog.

My intention is to inspire, delight and confound. Thank you for reading.

The Margins: Oddly-Shaped Ideas. An audio confession booth with a late night vibe exploring Obsessions, the Supernormal, paranormal, synchronicities, dramatic readings from obscure, trippy journals, mashups, and soundscape collage. Listen.
