In a show where Luke and the guests go on the record (for real—we had a court reporter onstage) Wild author Cheryl Strayed drops some of her favorite quotes, poet Anis Mojgani talks fast enough to fit four poems into one, Luke talks lawsuits with "Happy Birthday" documentarian Jenn Nelson, and LOLO sings her heart out.

Cheryl Strayed
Much-beloved author of Wild, perhaps the most successful memoir in the past decade, Strayed is now also the co-host of the Dear Sugar podcast with Steve Almond, offering love and relationship advice with a literary bent. Her newest book is Brave Enough.

Anis Mojgani
A two-time National Poetry Slam Champion, Anis' work has appeared on HBO, NPR and in three published poetry collections. He's performed at venues around the country and for the United Nations, which is like performing in 193 member states at once.

Jenn Nelson
A filmmaker and director of photography, Jenn Nelson filed a lawsuit against Warner Music Group in 2013 after paying $1,500 to use the "Happy Birthday Song" in a documentary, claiming the song is in the public domain. Now she's making a documentary about the lawsuit.

Lolo is Lauren Pritchard, a singer/songwriter who started her career at 15 in Broadway's Spring Awakenings. Her raw, soulful voice shines through on her most recent EP, Comeback Queen.
