Legends On Deck

Looking Back at 2022: LOD Senior Editor, Brian Koss

For the last few years, I decided to put together a recap of my writing throughout that calendar year.  This exercise has allowed me to reflect on my writing and what themes have dominated my thinking.  I wrote reviews of my work in 2020 and 2021.  Here’s a look:

In 2022, my writing (and podcasting) took a number of twists and turns.  We are happy to report we have released 20 podcasts to date, 18 of which were released in 2022.  The podcast has shaped my personal writing interests and vice versa.  Here’s a look back at my entire body of work from 2022:
