Harvey Pekar guests on Douglas Rushkoff's "Media Squat" radio show this evening

the-beats-a-graphic-history
Tonight Arthur columnist Douglas Rushkoff will interview legendary file-clerk and comic book writer Harvey Pekar on his weekly radio show Media Squat. Topics to be discussed include Pekar’s new graphic novel on the history of the Beats (which you can, frustratingly enough, read without images on Google Books), Rushkoff’s new book, and Pekar’s famous on-air conflict on Late Night where he called Letterman a scab and shill for GE.

Media-Squat Radio airs every Monday at 7pm EDT
Listen on WFMU, iTunes, or Media Squat
