Ali Pearl, author of the recent New York Times Modern Love article 'On Tinder, Off Sex,' and I discuss: the intimacy of listening to Enya together; our emotional exhibitionism; and a grudge I had against her for not putting me in her article. I also take her to meet Chango—those badass EDM subway performers in Union Square wearing Mexican wrestling masks you may have been lucky enough to experience.

Over a year in the making, this epic episode of What's Your Yarn Worth spans several conversations with NYC comedian Aalap Patel. From Alpha Donuts in Queens, along Avenue A in the village, 3 of Andy's apartments, a rooftop in Brooklyn, and into the dark heart of one of New York's most beloved funny men.
[Correction: The poem that I read about 22 minutes in to this episode is by Greg Koehler and his name is actually pronounced "Keeler." Originally published in Ninth Letter as "Heart River Dirge," the poem is now titled "Mutual Testament" in the as of yet unpublished manuscript "Style, Elements." For now it's here. Check out Greg on Instagram. I've loved that poem for years and was finally able to track him down recently and get to know him a bit.]
