Outcasts in Love

GUEST HOST: Maulik Pancholy

Outcasts In Love

On this show, stories of people at society's fringes, looking to experience the kind of intimate relationships enjoyed by everyone else.


Guest host Maulik Pancholy presents two stories in which social outliers strive for love. In “Tandolfo the Great,” by Richard Bausch, a sad-sack children’s clown falls head over heels—without a banana peel. Michael Ian Black is the reader. And American master Carson McCullers presents a complex theory about the nature of love, from a surprising source: a down-at-heels guy in a diner. Lance Reddick reads “A Tree, A Rock, a Cloud.”
