Meet The Non-Ira Glass This American Life Guy And His New Book

News

America can no longer afford non-fiction, it seems, so there is a huge bump in fiction book tour traffic to Washington this week. Still, watch out, there's something that includes the word "twilight" which is an immediate red flag, and another thing about how America is sad because it can't "dominate other nations" like it used to, in college.
