April 15th, 2015

Episode 33 of 156 episodes

Four tales about the lighter side of love, from rib-tickling to rueful. Comic master Dorothy Parker is stuck with a dull dinner date in “But the One on the Right,” read by Christina Pickles; comic Wyatt Cenac spins Simon Rich’s remix of the Occupy Movement as a tale unrequited love in “Occupy Jen’s Street;” and Kirsten Vangsness gives us rocky romance in “Starting from Happy,” by Patricia Marx, and a married couple with an unusual issue in “People are Becoming Clouds,” by Joe Meno.
