The Areas of John Hodgman's Expertise

Hodgman On...

Sometimes there's no point is trying to come up with a witty introduction to a blog item — this usually happens when the item itself is funnier than you are.

On that note, you must listen to one item in particular on tonight's All Things Considered: Robert Siegel's interview with John Hodgman, author of the book entitled The Areas of My Expertise: An Almanac of Complete World Knowledge Compiled with Instructive Annotation and Arranged in Useful Order. These areas include "Matters Historical, Matters Literary, Matters Cryptozoological, Hobo Matters, Food Drink and Cheese (a Kind of Food), Squirrels and Lobsters and Eels, Haircuts, Utopia, What Will Happen in the Future and Most Other Subjects..."

... that's not everything, but my fingers are tired. The point is that it's funny.

See you tomorrow.
