Coming up on Connections: Wednesday, January 1
First hour: “Selected Shorts: I Did it My Way”
Second hour: “Capitol Steps: Politics Takes a Holiday”
Connections is preempted for special programming on this New Year’s Day.
In the first hour, it’s “Selected Shorts.” Guest host Kirsten Vangsness presents four stories of willful independence:
- An excerpt from Joan Crawford's "My Way of Life," is read by Cole Escola
- "Crazy They Call Me," by Zadie Smith, is performed by Karen Pittman
- "Interview," by Will Eno, is performed by Eno
- "I am Narcissus," by Elizabeth Olmstead, is performed by Bebe Neuwirth
Then in our second hour, The Capitol Steps bring their political musical satire to the air.
