Behind the scenes at public radio 

Who can give you the inside scoop better than someone who actually works there? John Hodgman has been a contributor to This American Life, which airs on AM 580 Saturdays at 1 pm and Sundays at 6 pm. He's also a contributor to Comedy Central's The Daily Show and the nerdy guy on the Mac ads. He's written a book called The Areas of My Expertise--and, seemingly, he has a lot of them--including the hobo "movement." If you're in the mood for a good laugh--join Robert Seigel as you listen to the interview at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5764627. And then watch the video, which can be found below his photo. You'll never be able to listen to Dan Simeone or Denise Perry again without thinking of what's really happening in the WILL studio (whoops! He was visiting NPR, right, not one of the affiliates?)
