On Saturday, I met David Sedaris in person (at the YMCA where he was trying to swim) and then saw him speak live on Saturday night (at the show). If you’ve ever shown up at a random YMCA and tried to negotiate yourself a guest pass, you know that you practically have to give blood and have several members sponsor you to get past the front desk… this experience was similar.

What a funny guy! If you’ve never heard of David Sedaris, he is a sattirical author (two of his books are “Me Talk Pretty One Day” and “Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim”). His books are really funny, but all of his material is much funnier if you can hear him deliver the dialogue himself. I highly recommend his audio books over the paper books. There is some free audio of Sedaris archived on NPR and you can also often hear his segments on This American Life (also on NPR).

To save you some time listening to ALL the past TAL radio shows, you can just search the archives for “sedaris” and jump directly to the shows where Sedaris does a segment (I did that for you and here’s the link).
