Podcast: Paul Lewis on NPR

On Point, a public radio program produced by WBUR in Boston, recently ran this hour-long segment featuring a discussion with Paul Lewis, author of Cracking Up: American Humor in a Time of Conflict. Debating and expanding on the topics of his book, Lewis engages Gideon Evans, a former Daily Show producer, and Jack Beatty, a senior editor at the Atlantic in a fascinating conversation about the ways humor is changing our cultural and political landscapes.
Lewis was also recently the featured guest on a short spot for the ABC Radio National show Saturday Extra. To find out why Cracking Up is generating so much attention pick up a copy for yourself!
