Joshua Foer - Author of Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything. The dance move or the astronaut thing? The scientist or the bagel company? You'll have to come to find out. His writing has appeared in National Geographic, Esquire, Slate, Outside, and The New York Times.
 
Arianne Cohen - When people sit down to record their most intimate moments, what winds up on the page? How many people have the same romantic anxieties you do? How long does it usually take to get to second base? Arianne spent four years collecting 1,500 "Sex Diaries", and the result is The Sex Diaries Project, a tantalizing tour of American bedrooms. That lamp is super tacky by the way.
 
Musical guest Parson Red Heads - With their new and second full release, Yearling, The Parson Red Heads deliver on the great promise that has been steadily building during their eight years as a band. How many of them are natural gingers? How many are parsons? It's hard to say.
