Ed Wood Wednesdays: The Ed Wood Summit Podcast #17 by Greg Dziawer

This week, Greg attempts to untangle another mystery about Ed Wood.

It ain't easy trying to ID the adult paperbacks and magazine articles that Ed Wood may have written nearly 60 years ago. This is a largely neglected body of work, and the rabbit holes run deep (no pun intended).

Last week on The Ed Wood Summit Podcast, I took a dive down one of those rabbit holes with my friend and fellow Woodologist Rob Huffman. Together, we autopsied what might have been some of the earliest examples of Ed Wood's adult magazine work, dating back to the early 1960s. Some of you asked to see the actual texts, so this week, I'm doing the first ever Ed Wood Summit Podcast story time! The story "It Takes Four to Tangle" was identified many moons ago as possibly being Wood's work, and in this podcast, I'll read it out loud to you.

Have a listen and tell me what you think!

As a reminder, all episodes of The Ed Wood Summit Podcast are available here.
