In this week’s episode, entitled Mr LeFevre Sucks, I start a new teaching job in a grade school in the South Bronx. After overcoming some initial distrust, I share many funny moments with my classes. I also learn a good deal about growing up in poverty in a neighborhood forgotten by the City and its services, and the amazing resilience of my 12 year old students.

    Touching the Sky

    12:16

    Our next episode of this new season is entitled Touching the Sky, we find a famous blind Indian writer visiting my studio. He’s never seen a skyscraper and plans to feel the relief work on my collection of bronze depictions of New York City architecture to discover what these tall buildings really look like. The whole experiment is a total failure, but not in the way you might think.  Fantasy and reality so often collide. It’s a rare moment when they coincide and this was not such a moment.

    We are back for a new season of the Compulsive Storyteller! Pigs are the smartest, most independent and mischievous barnyard animals, and I love asking pig farmers to share their favorite stories. This week's episode features three tales from my Pig Stories collection. FIrst up is a story about the dangers of a pig farmer raising his own pet pig . Next we visit a roadside attraction where a pig trained to mine gold for the audience decides he’s done with mining.  Finally we witness what happens when a 400 pound Duroc pig decides to flop down on top of his owner’s back while she’s  lying on the floor reading by the fire.
