Dan and Eric talk about: their summit at a Starbuck's in East Brunswick, New Jersey, the halfway point between Brooklyn and Philadelphia; Zach Helfand's piece on Bubba the Love Sponge and his vile radio antics; Ed Caesar's long, winding and jaw-dropping story about Arron Banks, the 'bad boy' of Brexit; Lore Segal's spectacular short story, beautiful writing, and long history with the magazine, as well as her new collection of short stories; Hilton Als' return to the mag and his discussion of the current Broadway production of "Kiss Me Kate"; and the work and life of W.S. Merwin, whose death inspired Dan to revisit his extraordinary poetry.
