two stories that really made me laugh
- Malcolm Gladwell (author of The Tipping Point and Blink) tells stories from his first days as a reporter: laugh out loud funny. It’s on the free podcast of This American Life, Episode 348 (“Tough Room”); it’s the fourth story in the podcast and starts 45 minutes and 25 seconds in if you want to skip right to it.
- Elna Baker, a New York comedian, tells the story of trying to cut a divine deal to find her soul mate, and how she got rejected. Again, immensely funny.
