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.

Megan Mack is the executive producer of "Connections with Evan Dawson" and live/televised engagement programming.
