I had a story on This American Life this week.
It was a short story. Just a few minutes long as part of the prologue. Still, it was a thrill. A dream come true.
I’ve since discovered that there are only two kinds of reactions to telling someone that I’ll be appearing on This American Life.
“OH MY GOD! THAT’S HUGE! AMAZING! CONGRATULATIONS!”
“This American what?”
There is no middle ground.
