The World According to Vonnegut

HOST: Meg Wolitzer


On this episode, it's all about the Slaughterhouse Five author, who somehow managed to make a bleak dystopia funny and a high school band teacher a hero. With host Meg Wolitzer we celebrate 100 years of Vonnegut with stories that explore the darkly absurd side he’s known for—“Harrison Bergeron” performed by Becky Ann Baker––and a softer, touching side in “The Kid Nobody Could Handle” performed by Dylan Baker. With commentary from The Daily Show’s Jordan Klepper.
