Book Fight

This week we're talking about Kay Boyle's story "Defeat," an O'Henry winner from 1941. We also talk about a number of interesting things that happened in 1941, including: alien sightings, the time-traveling hipster, the first televised Mummers parade, the "state" of Jefferson's attempt to secede from Oregon, and the longest-ever coma. 

For more, including links to what we talked about on the show, visit us online at

Also: We're still running our annual fundraiser. You can donate--and get rewards--here, on our Indiegogo page
