This is an exciting episode because the New Yorker put out the first story by George Saunders in several years. This gives Dan and Eric a lot to talk about: the history of the American short story and Saunders' contribution to it. They also talk about David Remnick weaving together Toni Morrison's Nobel Prize acceptance speech with some thoughts on the language of our current president and a Jelani Cobb piece about Stacey Abrams and politics in Georgia.
