Exchange Exemplar: John Hodgman Beyond The Comedy

"It seems that every generation needs its public, tweedy, literary personality to sell its consumer electronics," John Hodgman once said.

He is that personality, the guy who wrote a few funny books, parlayed that into a regular gig on "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart," and became a fixture on Apple computer commercials... playing the drab PC to the stylish Mac.

His considerable skill at writing and delivering funny material continues into a more personal groove in Hodgman's memoir Vacationland: True Stories from Painful Beaches.

He joined us to give us a peek behind the mask--and to make fun of public radio conventions--in a 2017 interview. We revisit that interview here.
