I'm Josh. Write, perform, stare. My memoir, Repeat Until Rich, was published by Penguin Press and recognized alongside work by Jennifer Egan and David Shields as a Best Book of 2010 by The Nervous Breakdown. I'm a commentator on NPR's Marketplace, a host of The Moth StorySlam, a performer on The Moth Radio Hour. I've appeared on stage at the Players Club in New York, Seattle's Neptune Theater, the Royce Auditorium in Grand Rapids, the Power Center in Ann Arbor, and other venues that seem more numerous and impressive when alluded to rather than named. I'm sometimes characterized as a former advantage gambler or retired professional card counter and nothing seems ever to shake that rep. I took those clowns for plenty -- all right, but to what end?
