April Fool’s Day Podacst

A bumper-packed show all about April Fool’s Day. First up, actress, author and activist, Annabelle Gurwitch who insists in her new book, I See You Made an Effort: Compliments, Indignities, and Survival Stories from the Edge of 50 that clocking in at half a century is definitely an April Fool’s Joke, for any day of the year.

Los Angeles-based author Antoine Wilson‘s highly rated new book, Panorama City features a fool as the narrator. Antoine talks about his book and  recounts why he felt foolish after playing an April Fool prank on an unsuspecting convenience store clerk. Wilson‘s earlier book, The Interloper, is also highly recommended by Life Elsewhere.

Comedy writer for the likes of David Letterman and Rosie O’Donnell, Caissie St. Onge tells how she came to write for the legendary comedians and her foray into writing about a vampire with an allergy to blood in, Jane Jones: Worst. Vampire. Ever.

Alex Boese, curator of the Museum of Hoaxes offers insights into historical April Fool’s Day escapades, including the renowned BBC TV Panorama program on spaghetti harvesting in Switzerland.

Distinguished British journalist and author, Martin Wainright shares glimpses into his authoritative book, The “Guardian” Book of April Fool’s Day with charm and gifted drollness.
