“That Jane Goodall Tramp”

"That Jane Goodall Tramp" Human Voices Wake Us

An episode from 3/14/22: What happened during ⁠Jane Goodall’s famous appearance in Gary Larson’s The Far Side⁠ in 1987, and what can it teach us about the pedestal we place our idols on? What did a child’s introduction to The Beatles’ “Revolution 9” teach me about the power of preconceptions? This grab-bag episode, which includes bits from ⁠Leon Wieseltier’s 1996 book, Kaddish, touches on all of this and more.
