The Brian Lehrer Show

Newsmakers meet New Yorkers as host Brian Lehrer and his guests take on the issues dominating conversation in New York and around the world. This daily program from WNYC Studios cuts through the usual talk radio punditry and brings a smart, humane approach to the day's events and what matters most in local and national politics, our own communities and our lives. WNYC Studios is a listener-supported producer of other leading podcasts including Radiolab, On the Media, Snap Judgment, Death, Sex & Money, Nancy, Here’s the Thing with Alec Baldwin and many others. © WNYC Studios

Don’t Tell Me!, member of the American Heritage Dictionary Usage Panel, member of the Fellowship of Southern Writers and the author of Save Room for Pie: Food Songs and Chewy Ruminations (Sarah Crichton Books, 2016), offers his thoughtful humor on the subjects of pie, possums, and the time he ate at the Nathan's hot dog restaurant in Times Square.

Bonus: here's the New York Times article referenced in the interview about the Southern practice of eating dirt.

@BrianLehrer I'm the one making potato chip pie.
