Dan Warren is creating stories based on snippets he pulls from the audio book version of the President’s autobiography. It’s a sort of word collage approach called “Son of Strelka, Son of God”.

The full story is available here. My interview with Dan is on our July 11th show (towards the end).

Below are videos of the first two chapters.
