Asking Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket) All the Wrong Questions


Earlier this year, the Greatest MEND Podcast team had the opportunity to ask fish killer and author Daniel Handler—aka Lemony Snicket—All the Wrong Questions. Between swimming in the San Francisco Bay and making beet soup, he spoke on the telephone with GMP team members Daniela Catalan, Angie Benitez, Victoria Benitez, and Estuardo Rodas—aka D.A.V.E.

Though Mr. Handler is a wanted man, he found time to discuss cutting off little bits of people’s personalities, bullying versus being bullied, and cryptozoology. He also fielded questions about his many books, including “A Series of Unfortunate Events” and “All the Wrong Questions.”

Mr. Handler lives in San Francisco with his 12-year-old son, Otto, who may or may not be a father, and his wife, artist Lisa Brown. Learn more about him on his website, All the Wrong Questions. It’s fun!  Even if you think you know his work already, Google him! Mysterious! Shadowy! Delightful!
