Bucky Sinister is a poet, self-help author, and a comedian. He’s also a published journalist with focus on film reviews, and he’s written a few short stories. Erik Core interviews Bucky about his move from the mid-west to the Bay Area to hang out with the beat poets and punk rockers, his recovery from drugs and alcohol, his unconventional approach to writing self-help books, and his natural progression to the world of comedy. This is part one of two episodes.
Self Help: He has a very unconventional take on the world of 12 Step recovery, which led to him writing two books, Get Up and Still Standing. He’s a staunch atheist but also a strong proponent of the higher power part of 12 Step, and doesn’t see a conflict there. All of the self help books are about drugs and alcohol.
