    The Midnight Citizen 244: "True Fiction"

    Join Mike in the studio on a Saturday night, on the eve of his 40th birthday…

    …where he wonders if a chance meeting with Salman Rushdie once rendered him unable to distinguish between truth and fiction. Also: the truth that great fiction makes us see the world in unreal and alternate ways. And remembering Kenneth Starr, the great romance novelist of the 1990’s, who died this week at 76.

    The Midnight Citizen 242: "The Private Lives of Television Characters"

    Join Mike in the studio on a Saturday night…

    …where he wonders how much more intimate television can get? Will we soon see the characters watching Netflix on the world’s first 24-hour sitcom? Also, I’m in grave risk of getting the “Freshman 15”, and I learn that Bob Crane once did a television pilot where he starred as a 40-year-old college student. Am I in danger of going down his same path?

    Join Mike in the studio on a Saturday night…

    …where he attempts to hold the world’s first convention via telepathy, and recounts his first week back on campus as a full-time graduate student. They won’t let him save on rent by moving into a dorm. Also: why’s everybody so upset about student loan forgiveness?

    The Midnight Citizen 240: "Backward Compatible"

    The Midnight Citizen 240: "Backward Compatible"

    Join Mike in the studio on a Saturday night…

    …where he mourns the passing of Summer 2022 while wishing the world were more backwards compatible – you know, like computer software in the 90s. Also, colleges nationwide encourage their students to withhold their urges…at least in the showers, and a toast to Salman Rushdie, who DID NOT DIE after the long-standing Fatwa on his life was nearly executed last week.
