Kaitlin Olson plays Sweet Dee on It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. She’ll talk about morally broken comedy characters and whether it’s a good idea to fall in love with the creator of your TV show. Then later Jesse talks to Jeff Chang. About 10 years ago he wrote Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation. It won the American Book Award in 2005. His new book is called Who We Be: The Colorization of America. In some ways, it's a follow up to the last one. It's about how art in America shapes, and is shaped by, race. Plus, Jesse tells you about one real-life superhuman: Andre the Giant. Show notes

We continue our journey into The Sound of Young America's vast audio archive with this program from The Sound of Young America Classics.
This show is all about summer, and fun, and how the two really just go hand in hand. First, we adjudicate the New Sincerity Summer contest, in which listeners offer up their favorite summer activities.
Then we talk with Mike Veeck, minor league baseball empresario, son of baseball Hall of Famer Bill Veeck, and author of Fun is Good. Mike talks with us about some of the promotions he's concocted, like "Disco Demolition Night" and "Mime-O-Vision." He also tells us about his son, who he has named "Night Train." Seriously people, this man is dedicated.
