3: John Hodgman, Julia Sweeney and Here Are The News



This week, host John Moe visits with the multi-talented John Hodgman. He's the author of several books of fake knowledge, including the latest, That Is All, which has just been released in audiobook form. We hear Hodgman's thoughts on margarine tub percussion, the hugs one receives while famous, and the model set by George Plimpton. If you don't know who George Plimpton is, go look it up. Please. Also, a Wits classic: Julia Sweeney tells the story of the bumpy road toward explaining sex to her daughter. And we get a news update and debate analysis from the somewhat disturbing @HereAreTheNews team.
