September 10th, 2016

Episode 657 of 689 episodes

Pamela Adlon says her long-time collaboration with Louis C.K. helped hone her writing voice. Her new series for FX, 'Better Things,' is based on her experiences as the single mother of three daughters. Book critic Maureen Corrigan reviews Jonathan Safran Foer's third novel, 'Here I Am.' Known for the avant-garde sound he brings to Wilco, guitarist Nels Cline turns to ballads and jazz standards on his new album, 'Lovers.' He describes it as a "mood-music record" that isn't cheesy.
