After years of working in the service industry, Eric Obenauf had an idea for an indie press that opened up space to publish bold, edgy, new voices he admired in the literature he loved. With the help of his wife Eliza the couple created Two Dollar Radio.
Two Dollar Radio is an indie press founded in 2005 with the mission to reaffirm the cultural and artistic spirit of the publishing industry.
With an aim to publish bold works of literary merit, each book, individually and collectively, provides a sonic progression that we believe to be too loud to ignore.
We talked to Erica and Eliza about the journey they took to making their indie press dreams a reality. And in the wake of the pandemic, how publishing books as a small press has become much more challenging, yet even more rewarding. This conversation is about the reality of living your dream, what they look for in publishing, and so much more.
