It’s Easter at the LRB, and Branson the bunny is celebrating by deploying his turd cannon while Edith the cat preps for a trip. As for your hosts, after deciding on the next phase of our careers, we buckle down to discuss who should (or should not) approach celebrities for selfies, the positives of automated customer service, the Seventies sexiness of Michael Landon, and the real reason that men get married. Meredith has some low-capacity thumb drives she needs to part with, Mike made a poor spaghetti sauce-related decision, and Ann has a message for the car-packers of America. Plus, we dive deep into the career of noted ornithologist Steve Canada. Watch out, because this episode has more hot takes than a racist cable news host.
