TIH 328 David Moody on Professional and Personal Changes, Running and Inspiration, and The Human Race Destroying Itself

In this podcast David Moody talks about biggest professional and personal changes in the last three years, running and inspiration, the human race destroying itself, and much more.

About David Moody

David Moody first self-published Hater in 2006, and without an agent, succeeded in selling the film
rights for the novel to Mark Johnson (producer, Breaking Bad) and Guillermo Del Toro (director, The Shape
of Water, Pan’s Labyrinth). His seminal zombie novel Autumn was made into an (admittedly terrible)
movie starring Dexter Fletcher and David Carradine. Moody has an unhealthy fascination with the end of
the world and writes books about ordinary folks going through absolute hell.
