'In Character' On the Air

On Air: Richard Pryor's Mudbone

» Hear the 'News & Notes' radio commentary

Before I sign off, a quick note about the first on-air In Character piece, which aired on NPR's News & Notes.

Author and academic William Jelani Cobb ruminates on the character of Mudbone, who was the aged, truth-telling alter ego of comedian Richard Pryor. Give a listen.
