The Gist

Jesse Eisenberg, Part 2

Yesterday on The Gist, Jesse Eisenberg performed his story “Marv Albert is My Therapist” alongside your host. Today, they’ll discuss his story collection Bream Gives Me Hiccups and why Eisenberg is drawn to writing dialogue. For the Spiel, don’t forget that it’s only six days until the Iowa caucuses.
