Funny Guys

If you haven't subscribed to the Selected Shorts podcast maybe this will persuade you. It's one of my favorite programs.

The two stories on this program are devoted to goings-on at the workplace—that hotbed of intrigue and thwarted ambitions. First, Lydia Davis's "Alvin the Typesetter" chronicles the travails of one office worker. The reader is the author and "This American Life" performer David Rakoff. Next, T.C. Boyle weaves a tangled web of comic deceit in "The Lie" with a zestful read by political satirist and TV personality Stephen Colbert.
