New World Notes: #536 -- Jean Shepherd: Elephant Feet, Segment 1

2 months 1 week ago
All new episode!--most of which is 56 years old. The third in our series of classic monologues by the great radio humorist / satirist / storyteller Jean Shepherd. Shepherd pokes fun at American life--including our crazy junk, our unrealistic "realistic" TV shows; our love of doing things just to see if they can be done; the rationalizations we concoct to justify space flights and war; and our favorite rhetorical question, "Who's covering up?" Condensed by--and with a brief introduction by--KD.
