We continue our journey into The Sound of Young America's vast audio archive with this program from The Sound of Young America Clasics.

Henry Rollins is a rock and roll legend. He fronted both the Rollins Band and Black Flag, and has performed spoken word around the country. He's also the host of The Henry Rollins Show, and has appeared in numerous films.

John Hodgman is now familiar to TV viewers as "PC" in Apple's long-running Mac v. PC campaign, and as a correspondent on the Daily Show. He appeared on The Sound of Young America just weeks before his first Daily Show appearance, to talk about his book "The Areas of My Expertise."

Mike Birbiglia is a standup comic who in 2002 became one of the youngest comics ever to appear on "Late Night with David Letterman." He's parlayed his wildly succesful "Secret Public Journal," which collects true stories from his life, into a new special, called "What I Should Have Said Was Nothing." Bonus: Mike talks with me about the CBS pilot he recently shot (MP3).

We continue our journey into The Sound of Young America's vast audio archive with this program from The Sound of Young America Clasics.

This week, Pulitzer-prize-winning comix artist Art Spiegelman (above) talks about his book "In the Shadow Of No Towers," a collection of large-format newspaper comics about September 11th and its fallout.

Then we talk with Chris Elliott, long-time foil to David Letterman, co-creator and star of the cult sitcom Get A Life, and now comic novelist. His first novel was "The Shroud of the Thwacker."

Finally, we talk with Matt Walsh. In addition to appearing in many movies, Walsh is a founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade. He also starred in the semi-improvised semi-reality sitcom Dog Bites Man.

Podcast: Bill James, Legendary Baseball Writer and Analyst

| 0 comments
Show: 
Bullseye

In the late 1970s, Bill James started writing "The Baseball Abstract," a new kind of baseball annual. James used statistical analysis to study baseball's conventional wisdom, and often found unexpected results. The first Abstracts were hand-mimeographed and mailed by James himself, but by the early 1980s, James was at the forefront of a new movement, which he called sabermetrics, that argued for objective analysis of the game. James and his cohorts were often derided by baseball insiders, but today James is an employee of the Boston Red Sox, and his ideas have helped transform how baseball teams are run. James also runs billjamesonline.net and has just released his first in a new series of annuals, The Bill James Baseball Goldmine.
