The Paper Machete Radio Magazine: The Trouble Episode

Before Daylight Savings ended, there was a whole lotta trouble, starting with Samantha Irby, who paints Herman Cain as the lady killer he is. Cayne Collier becomes a gastroenterologist who educates us on fecal transplants (a real thing!). Chad the Bird wonders whether those wearing Guy Fawkes masks really know what they mean. With music from Diego Sol and the Metronomes, specifically, an excellent cover an excellent Prince song. And as usual, if you can hear us, this magazine is LIVE.  Download at iTunes here, or listen below.

At this Saturday's show at the Horseshoe, Bill Ayers returns to The Paper Machete. He'll be talking about a looming scandal in for-profit education. Other topics in the queue: the Mississippi Personhood Amendment and the CTA's social media tactics. With Chad the Bird; Jason Economus of Write Club; comedian Matt Kelly; writer and performer Coya Paz; Tim Sniffen and Brendan Dowling of Second City, and Jessica Young of 2nd Story. Check The Paper Machete's site for the updates on this line-up as the week goes on.
