Dan and Eric talk about Dan's recent hosting of Yiyun Li at Bryn Mawr College, and how she knows when a short story is complete; Amy Davidson Sorkin on the Mueller report and the profanity of Trump and his cronies; Rebecca Mead's piece about Airbnb in Barcelona; Greg Jackson's current story, "Poetry," and his earlier story, "Wagner in the Desert"; Nicholas Lemann on a new biography of John Hersey; Amanda Petrusich on a Jewish jazz trumpeter who performed for the Nazis, and spent the rest of his life in gratitude to jazz for saving him, in many ways; and Dan talks about recent reading of short story writer, William Trevor.
