Steve Almond is the guest. His new book, Bad Stories: What the Hell Just Happened to Our Country?, is available now from Red Hen Press.
This is Steve's third time on the program. He first appeared in Episode 9, on October 16, 2011, and again in Episode 302, on August 10, 2014.
In today's monologue, I talk briefly about the moment we find ourselves in as Americans, and about the odd consolation of Steve's book.
