Episode 273 of 447 episodes

In the July 30th issue of the magazine, David Remnick profiles Bruce Springsteen. Here Nicholas Thompson talks with David Remnick and Kelefa Sanneh about how Springsteen reconciles his songs about working-class struggles with his own success, and why Springsteens nostalgic brand of rock and roll has aged so well. Also, Sarah Payne Stuart answers questions about her home town of Concord, Massachusetts, and excerpts from a coming-of-age story by Simon Rich, as told by a condom.
