Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Ask a Clean Person: The Podcast debuted last week on the Heritage Radio Network. My first guest was Choire Sicha, a writer of sorts in New York City (his words!) and co-proprietor of The Awl, who joined me to discuss hairy problems, human and feline.

Among the topics we covered were cat hair and the impact diet can have on the shedding thereof; the battle of the sexes when it comes to leaving our body hair everywhere; office cleaning, chore wheels, and good workplace citizenship; and the importance of saving cat whiskers for the doing of magic.


Oh, and Choire made fun of his frat-boy cat. It was a time!

You can listen here; it will be available in iTunes and Stitcher soon. Do you have topics you’d like me to take on? Email with the subject line CLEANCAST.
