This American Life repeats its 1996 Christmas show, including Sedaris’s delightful “true account of two Christmas seasons he spent working as an elf at Macy’s department store in New York.”
Also: “David Rakoff tells about his experience playing Sigmund Freud in the window of upscale Barney’s department store in Manhattan. For Christmas.”
Charming 1995 article about a New York woman’s 16-year love/hate relationship with her rent-controlled apartment. $475/mo. for a two-bedroom on Riverside Drive? Even in 1995 that’s a miracle.
