I recently came upon Meryl’s LiveJournal while looking around for Jonathan Goldstein/WireTap-related stuff. From what I can gather, Meryl has a huge crush on her English prof. This crush somehow led to an interview on WireTap.
Anyhow, I’ve been reading her posts lately. She’s a big This American Life fan, and recently visited Chicago. Unbeknownst to Meryl, her pal Colin got them into a live TAL taping, and she met Ira Glass.
Her post detailing the experience is excellent. Read it.
