Nate brings out some heavy hitters this week. Get ready to hear brilliant writer/comedian Megan Amram read an excerpt from her book “Science…For Her!” recorded live from UCB-LA. Then, author/teacher/essayist Ryan Knighton joins Nate to talk about getting in touch with the folks at This American Life and Ira Glass, the biggest issues when working on “C’mon Papa: Dispatches from a Dad in the Dark,” and his approach to writing when he started to go blind. Finally, the fantastic Joey McIntyre closes the show by reading an excerpt from “All Souls: A Family Story from Southie” by Michael Patrick MacDonald in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. Don’t forget to send in your thoughts on Richard Price’s “The Whites” at email@example.com for the next book club episode!
