Father Pfleger, Larry David, and the history of Autism

Hosted by

This week, Father Michael Pfleger, a white priest on Chicago’s South Side, holds a funeral for a young man who threatened his life; Larry David applies his passive-aggression to Missed Connections listings; and the authors of a new book on autism discuss "patient zero," an elderly man in Mississippi who was the first person ever to receive the diagnosis.
