Show: 
Bullseye

We continue our journey into The Sound of Young America's vast audio archive with this program from The Sound of Young America Clasics.

This week on the program, syndicated columnist, author and podcast host Dan Savage and writer Neil Strauss.

Dan Savage writes the syndicated sex and relationships advice column Savage Love, and hosts the podcast of the same name. He's also written several books, including "The Commitment," which focuses on his family's feelings about gay marriage. Savage himself is gay, in a committed relationship, and has a small child.

Neil Strauss has written extensively for the New York Times and ghost-written several celebrity books, but he became nationally known for his book "The Game," which delves into the world of "pick-up artists." Strauss wrote a piece on the subculture for the Times, which led to him eventually becoming a leader in the community. He recently released a sequel to the book.
