Episode notes

This week on The Sound of Young America, we visit with two great Jonathans — Katz and Goldstein.

Our first talk is with Jonathan Goldstein. Goldstein is the author of the novel “Lenny Bruce is Dead,” which is story of a young man, his romances, and the death of his mother. The story is told non-sequentially in brief vignettes, often no more than three or four sentences in length.

Jonathan is also a contributing editor for This American Life, and the producer of the CBC’s Wiretap. The latter is a show composed entirely of telephon conversations — some real, many semi-fictional.

We also talk this week with Jonathan Katz, comedian and creator of “Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist,” which is out on DVD May 9th. We talk with him about making the show, and interestingly, about his long-standing relationship with David Mamet. We also hear a segment from his semi-fictional radio show, “We’re Back.”
