This hour, we champion the underdog as writer Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz brings us the story of Dr. Thomas Mutter, the father of modern medicine and "the P.T. Barnum of the operating room," comic Hari Kondabolu explains why he likes NPR hate mail best ("the grammar is perfect"), and Deep Sea Diver provides the perfect soundtrack.

Hari Kondabolu
Want to feel a little uncomfortable, but in a good way? The NYTimes has called Hari Kondabolu, who has no qualms delving into racial issues in his sets, "one of the most exciting political comics in stand-up today." He's appeared on Letterman, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel and every podcast that has ever existed.

Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz
A NYTimes bestselling author and poet, Cristin brings us her seventh book, Dr. Mutter's Marvels, the first-ever biography of Dr. Thomas Dent Mutter, the flamboyant father of modern medicine who was known as "the P.T. Barnum of the operating room."

Deep Sea Diver
Singer and multi instrumentalist Jessica Dobson formed Deep Sea Diver while playing guitar for bands like The Shins, Beck and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Deep Sea Divers latest EP entitled Always Waiting has been called "as kinetic as it is well-crafted" by KEXP.
