I am the host and head writer of the public radio program Wits, heard on stations around the country. I'm a long-time contributor to McSweeney's and my writing has appeared in The New York Times Magazine and numerous humor anthologies. I'm the former host of the national public radio programs Weekend America and Marketplace Tech Report. I live in St Paul, Minnesota with my family. God tries to ice murder all the people here every year and we always feel triumphant when/if we survive.
I'm from Seattle and am a big fan of the Mariners, Seahawks, and Sonics, even though as I write this the Sonics do not exist.
