This week, we talk about doing things the hard way as Against Football author Steve Almond reads his hate mail, LAIKA Studios' Georgina Hayns talks BoxTrolls and the patience of stop-motion puppeteers and Horse Feathers gets all rock-y with their new sound.

Steve Almond
Steve Almond has written controversial things about candy, sex and politics, even going head-to-head with Sean Hannity, but his latest book, Against Football: One Man's Reluctant Manifesto, wherein he examines the dark underbelly of America's favorite game, may be his most controversial yet.

Georgina Hayns
As the head of the puppetry department for LAIKA, Georgina has overseen the creation of beautiful, intricate puppets for stop-motion films like Coraline, ParaNorman and the forthcoming The Boxtrolls.

Horse Feathers
Since 2005, Horse Feathers have been the quintessential indie folk band out of the Northwest, but with their latest album, lead singer Justin Ringle added a rhythm section and now plan to rock out with their...guitars and things. Their newest record is So It Is With Us.
