The Moth Radio Hour 602

Laura Albert, who wrote critically acclaimed books using the pen name J.T. Leroy, details her side of what became a major literary scandal. Tristan Jimerson has his credit card number stolen, and he becomes an amateur sleuth, taking the law into his own hands to bring the thief to justice. Alfred DeChalus is drafted into the Vietnam War and trained to be a killer, but during his third tour of duty finds that compassion still lives in his heart. Hosted by The Moth's Producing Director, Sarah Austin Jenness.
