Where but in Studio 360 can you hear Emily Dickinson sung to the tune of "Gilligan's Island"? Studio 360 is the place where a Freudian shrink can analyze a videogame about bunnies, a home improvement guru can rhapsodize about sheetrock, UN translators sing birdsongs, indie rockers sing gospel, a Hasidic Jew sings Bob Marley, and a surfer delivers the entire plot of Moby Dick in two minutes flat.
In Studio 360, Kurt Andersen -- novelist, journalist, and co-founder of legendary Spy magazine - is our guide to what's happening in the culture. Dolly Parton tells Kurt why she modeled her look after the "town tramp." Jack Handey offers deep thoughts about how to make your skeleton scarier.
