Punching In

Guest host Maulik Pancholy presents three stories about workers and the workplace—and "the daily grind."  In a John Cheever classic, “Bayonne,” a busy waitress defends her territory.  The reader is Mary Kay Place.  The always succinct Lydia Davis gives us “Alvin the Typesetter,” in which a bohemian artist battles job conformity.  The late David Rakoff performs.   And in “OBF, Inc." by Bernice L. McFadden, an interviewee at a hip start-up learns about a secret organization that sells cultural capital.  It’s performed by Teagle F. Bougere.
