92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Leslie Goshko

imageLeslie Goshko is an award-winning storyteller who’s won our hearts in the latest edition of Culture Klatsch (that’s her in the photo at left with Ira Glass, “the man, the myth, the legend.").

When she’s not busy resting Diet Cokes on her (useful!) copy of Infinite Jest, watching “Dance Moms”, or performing with the improvised storytelling rock band The BTK Band, Leslie serves as host of her monthly storytelling show Sideshow Goshko. Leslie brings her Sideshow to 92YTribeca tomorrow night with A+ storytellers in tow, including former “Blue’s Clues” host Steve Burns, comedian Tom Shillue, and Moth GrandSlam Champion Ed Gavagan. 

Where do you go for news when you start your day?
Well, since I’m sure Facebook and my college roommate’s blog don’t count, I’d say the radio. I still listen to an actual radio. It’s in my kitchen. My dad gave it to me. Hi, Dad!

What are your favorite websites?
I have a feeling this answer is just the first in a series of “maybe I shouldn’t reveal that” moments but…I daily check And in case you’re wondering what that stands for, it’s “What Would Tyler Durden Do.” Yes, Tyler Durden from “Fight Club.” Apparently I’m a college-aged frat boy who wants you to know that the first rule about Fight Club is...well, I don’t remember. But the second rule is fighting!

Actually it’s a pop culture site.

How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
They are intravenously inserted into my body (shameless twitter plug @ohmygoshko).

What book are you currently reading (or the last one you read)? Print or digital?
Books? What are these “books” you speak of? Oh, you mean coasters! Infinite Jest has saved my table from many a diet coke ring. I’d like to see your Kindle do that!
