Guest host Jane Kaczmarek presents a program of stories in which things don’t quite work out as planned. Three are by humorist BJ Novak. He reads his “All You Have to Do;” Allison Williams reads “Missed Connection,” and Novak, Aasif Mandvi, and Williams read “Closure.” In Miranda July’s “Roy Spivey,” read by Amy Ryan, a shy woman attracts a celebrity, and another shy woman yearns for happiness in James Joyce’s “Eveline,” read by Kelli O’Hara.
