Owen Gardner

Owen Gardner is a musician, non-smoker, and gourmand based in Baltimore, MD. He’s been imagining a long-form country song called “Sneaking a Peak” about strangers ethically checking each other out and the political value of shame. He will never finish or even meaningfully start it.

The last book Owen recommended was Edward Baptist, The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism.
A skill he’d like to learn is tap-dancing.
His favorite tool is the fork.
