Jim O'Grady: You, me, and the monkey

Jim O'Grady's attempts to woo his housemate are stymied by the monkey she's training to help quadriplegics.

Jim O'Grady is a reporter for WNYC Radio and a Moth GrandSLAM champ. He has worked as a reporter for The New York Times, a professor of journalism at NYU and research director at The Center for an Urban Future. That's a policy think tank for whom he co-wrote this science-y report: bit.ly/7vx5Ei. He is the author of two biographies, Dorothy Day: With Love for the Poor and Disarmed & Dangerous: The Radical Lives and Times of Daniel and Philip Berrigan. Ask him how his high school science teacher, who was a nut job, pronounced "mitochondria."
