Tough love for literature

Episode 212: Winter of Wayback, 1951!

Leave a comment

It’s the second week of our annual Winter of Wayback, and we’re diving into 1951! We’ve got a story from Harris Downey, who isn’t a household name these days but was quite the rising literary star in the early 50s. We also talk about several other important 1951 developments, including the New Jersey Turnpike, corrupt boxing promoters, fast food, and Billy Joel’s busted TV.

As always, you can stream the episode right here on our site, or download the mp3 file. You can also find us in the iTunes store, or in just about any app you might use to listen to podcasts.
