Comic & Author Adam Cayton-Holland: 'Don't Be Lazy'

tragedy-plus-time.jpg

Adam Cayton-Holland is a writer, comic, and actor based in Denver whose tragicomic memoir Tragedy + Time is now available on Audible. The book is heart-wrenching and hilarious all at once, written in tribute to his younger sister Lydia after her suicide. Adam talks with KDNK's Gavin Dahl about his first time doing Conan and offers suggestions for getting the creative juices flowing while sitting at home. "Be diligent, don't be lazy," he says. "Stop making excuses, go get some work done. That's my advice."

Gavin became one of the youngest station managers in public radio on February 1, 2017. He is a writer and producer with a passion for community media. Prior to starting at KDNK as news director in 2016, Gavin worked for national radio programs Alternative Radio with David Barsamian and Nonprofit Radio with Tony Martignetti along with local stations KGNU Boulder, KYRS Spokane, KRBX Boise, KAOS Olympia, and Air America Radio affiliate KPTK Seattle. His nonprofit management experience includes Open Media Foundation, where he led a government transparency team, and Common Frequency, where his policy advocacy supported dozens of noncommercial radio startups. Boulder Weekly, Raw Story, Austin American-Statesman, Boise Weekly, and The Sopris Sun have published his reporting. His TV credits include directing teams at Colorado Channel, crewing for Democracy Now!, and hosting on Free Speech TV. He graduated from the Evergreen State College in 2008 with a BA in media production and community organizing.
