Act Three

Stiff as a Board, Light as a Feather

David Rakoff tells this story, about the invisible processes that can happen inside our bodies...and the visible effects they eventually have. David died three months after this performance, in August 2012. We dedicated an episode to him, collecting stories he told on the show over the years. David finished a final book - a novel, written in rhyme - called Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish. It will be published in July.
