The Literate Loser, Show #17

The best chapter of Mark Twain’s Puddn’head Wilson so far! I actually gasped aloud when I read this chapter to myself late last week! Don’t skip over it!

In more somber news, the great Lloyd Alexander died on May 17 and I didn’t find out until last night, so I present an extremely humble, unsuitable tribute to one of my favorite writers of all time.

I think I’ll apologize in advance for an especially self-indulgent show, which sounds weird coming from a guy who did the entire online dating service questionnaire live, but whatever. Something about this one embarrasses me a little.
