14 years ago I booked an interview with an author who had just published his first book. Gary Shteyngart was on book tour for the paperback release of "The Russian Debutante's Handbook" and he came out to Yellow Springs for a live interview. I had really enjoyed the book and was looking forward to meeting him. Gary arrived and from the very start of our exchange that day I realized that I was in the presence of one of our great humorists.

Fourteen years ago Calvin Trillin came out to Yellow Springs to do a live interview with me. I had not listened to the recording we made that afternoon until just recently and had forgotten how much fun we had had that day talking about food. I have had a number of food writers on the show over the years but I cannot think of any other guest who indulges in various gustatory delights with such gusto and obvious pleasure as Trillin does.
