John Hodgman gained fame for his wry and dry look at the world around us, on venues like Comedy Central's "The Daily Show."
He wrote three books of "fake trivia and invented history" (his terms), then recoiled at the prevalence of fake news in America today. What else could he do but turn to reality?
Hodgman's latest book is Vacationland, an actual memoir with actual events from his actual life. And, of course, it's actually funny--he's still John Hodgman.
And he's our guest for this hour of The Exchange.
