Episode 31: Nathan Rabin


The author, cinephile and head writer of The Onion's A.V. Club talks with Paul about his deeply painful childhood and a seemingly endless series of rejection.  Foster homes, mental institutions, kidnapping by a mother who ultimately had no interest in him and a fear-off that includes a phrase we may never hear again: "I'm afraid I ruined Weird Al's Easter."
