On this program, guest host Jane Curtin presents four stories involving art and artists. Love is the enemy of art in Stacey Richter’s “The Minimalist,” read by Parker Posey; a lonely boy and an aging painter are friends in William Boyd’s “Varengeville,” read by Dan Stevens; and Dolan Morgan and Helen Phillips offer two surreal stories about home life and parenting, inspired by a mural artist Ed Ruscha’s created for New York City's High Line. The readers are Rita Wolf and Heather Burns.
Kotaku's Evan "Mr. Style" Narcisse is here to chat with Kirk and Jason about what we want to see next from former pachinko star Hideo Kojima. We also talk about Star Wars: The Force Gets Up -- NO SPOILERS! -- and the importance of video game preservation.
