  • Two Against the World
    Guest host Hope Davis presents two stories in which strong bonds between women are evoked, by authors reflecting very different worlds.  In Youmna Chlala’s “Nayla,” read by Rita Wolf, two young women in a traditional community form a friendship.  In Susan Perabo’s “Life Off My E,” the relationship between sisters is reflected through their shared love of Scrabble.  Hope Davis is the reader.

  • Ploughshares at 50
    Guest host Jane Curtin presents two stories from the influential literary journal Ploughshares.  “y = mx+b,” by Andrew Altschul uses an algebraic formula to explore the act of storytelling and the shape of life itself.  It’s performed by Peter Mark Kendall.  In our second story, Jamel Brinkley’s “I Happy Am,” a boy who usually imagines himself as a robot begins to imagine his own, real life.  It also reflects on the way issues of race and class can effect a child’s imagination. The reader is Karen Pittman.  Join and give!: See for privacy information.
  • Runs in the Family
    Guest host Cynthia Nixon presents two stories about unusual family members. In Alix Ohlin’s “The Cruise,” a heartsick divorcee travels with her unconventional aunt.

  • Holidays with Mom
    Guest host Meg Wolitzer presents our holiday show--two stories about being home for the holidays and how you can count on your Mom to be there for you—and possibly to complicate things.  First, memoirist Augusten Burroughs recalls a disastrous—and hilarious—childhood cooking project.  Reader Michael Cerveris relishes every bite.  And in “Live Wires” by Thomas Beller, a young man invites his girlfriend to his mother’s annual Hanukkah party.  The reader is Jane Curtin.
