This week, it’s a special live(ly) edition of the DPD, recorded at the historic Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, Minnesota. Comedian Michael Ian Black comes bearing terrible casseroles and terribly funny etiquette advice… Rocker Angel Olsen plays the lights out… Acclaimed novelist Marlon James remembers the time when his inner diva took center-stage, then introduces us to Jamaican geek subcultures… We connect the dots in the history of Twister – a game once derided as “sex in a box”… And hip-hop phenom Lizzo closes the show with an anthem of self-acceptance.
