20 Acts in 60 Minutes

Hosted by
Yeah, yeah, yeah, each week we choose a theme, and bring you three or four stories on that theme. Or one big epic story on that theme. That's our show. Except for this one. We throw all that away and bring you twenty stories, yes twenty, in sixty minutes. Featuring works by Jonathan Goldstein, Etgar Keret, Chuck Klosterman, David Lipsky, Jay Allison and Atlantic Public Media, and David Sedaris. One story - made by a teenager locked up in juvenile detention - came from Blunt Radio. Inspiration for this week's show came from the Neo-Futurists, whose long-running Chicago show Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind promises 30 plays in 60 minutes every single weekend.
