Monday Tuesday, which means it's time for another episode of the CCLaP Podcast. Today, it's a one-hour talk with local writer Bill Hillman: former gang member and drug dealer, past Golden Gloves boxing champion, a runner with the bulls in Spain every year, and now the author of the high-profile coming-of-age novel The Old Neighborhood. Also featuring the music of The Soft and Cults.
