Ep 249 - The Nerd, by Larry Shue

Larry Shue's 1981 play The Nerd is about a gumption-less architect trying to extract a painful person from his life. Did we mention it's a comedy?

We cover the play's plot (including its final reveal), the allure of answering machines, anonymous favors, and the Nintendo Switch.

This week's show is brought to you in part by Blue Apron.
