Friends and Colleagues
First, Kid Beyond is performing in New York on Thursday and Sunday. If you read my review of his last concert, you’ll see why I’m urging everyone to see him. Live is the only way to do it.
Second, please congratulate my friend and storytelling colleague Elna Baker who has just appeared on This American Life in an episode about matchmaking. She’s 20 minutes from the end, telling a story about F.A.O Schwarz and a deformed doll called Baby Nubbins. It’s hilarious. I’m so proud! The podcast is available now. Get it before it costs you a dollar! (You can also find her on YouTube, which I also highly recommend.)
