Je m’appelle Jeremy Henderson. I’m a writer living in Auburn, Ala. and the editor of The War Eagle Reader. I’m also the co-host of Rich and Jeremy in the Morning on Wings 94.3 FM. That show rules and you should listen to it every day on Wings 94.3 FM and TuneIn and Wings943.com. Turn them on all at the same time. You can also listen to it on SoundCloud.
I barely graduated from Auburn University with a degree in philosophy in 2004. My greatest academic achievements were getting a ‘C’ on an essay written on Gary Numan’s Cars, and making The Thinker fall out of his chair with my final paper.
I have a wife named Jennie (funniest person ever, killer David Carr impression), two daughters, Sadie (11, second funniest person ever, poet, brilliant, blogs here, kind of on Twitter) and Phoebe (5, loud, adorable, control freak, good wrestler, model tae kwon do going places, totally fearless), and one son, Quinn (masculine, nice smile, good laugh).
Once upon a time, I worked as a features writer for the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal in Lubbock, Texas. I covered religion and rock ‘n’ roll and other things. I told some good jokes and won some awards and felt like a god. No trees out there, but I honestly kind of miss it.
I’ve been in some bands (someone actually added me to the Pine Hill Haints Wikipedia page).
I’ve been trying to write a book about streaking at Auburn University in 1974 for, like, six years now. [UPDATE: seven years.] [UPDATE: 10 years.] [UPDATE: 11 years.] Also writing another book that will change Auburn history. That’s been going on for more than 3 years now. Pushing four. And I’m trying to blog and just get out there and do write by the Lord.
