Talk of the Nation: What we can learn from romantic comedies

This week, NPR’s “Talk of the Nation” had me on to talk about the piece I wrote for The Atlantic, about romantic comedies, and about the state of the genre more generally. Despite a minor technological snafu, I got to have a good chat to host Neil Conan and a few listeners about what the genre teaches us about love, sex and relationships, and why some of those lessons are ones we would do best to un-learn.
