Journalist Jeremy Smith, who completed his MFA at the University of Montana in 2005, has teamed up with his daughter for a pandemic-era podcast. It's called "You Must Know Everything," and they're almost 100 episodes deep.

In each ten-ish minute recording, rising fith grader Rasa Smith and her father give each other a piece of advice, read and discuss a poem, and then answer a "vexing question," usually submitted by a listener. 

Smith's last book, Breaking and Entering: The Extraordinary Story of a Hacker Called 'Alien,' (Eamon Dolan/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), launched with a celebration event at Missoula's own Roxy Theatre. Breaking and Entering has earned praise from writers, readers, and cybersecurity experts alike.
