Alex Falcone is a moderately attractive comedian living in Portland, OR where he writes for the The Portland Mercury and the internationally syndicated public radio show Live Wire! Radio. He's the creator and host of the live talk show Late Night Action w/ Alex Falcone and the surprisingly popular podcast Read it and Weep, in which people pay him to suffer through bad books and movies. One time he was on the IFC show Portlandia and he still gets emails about it.
Despite all these modest accomplishments, he remains totally down to earth and approachable.

Nov 21Allow me to spoil the ending to the insanely popular podcast Serial: you're going to be disappointed.There's just no way the very long episode of This American Life is going to have a satisfying ending.
Nov 19In the final installment of the Hunger Games trilogy (of books, all movie trilogies are now 15 episodes long), Suzanne Collins brings the revolution in for a landing. But it's a rocky one if you're not a fan of weird politics, dumb leaders, and moping teenagers.
This interview with Will Smith’s kids is amazing. Some favorite quotes:
JADEN: You never learn anything in school. Think about how many car accidents happen every day. Driver’s ed? What’s up?
WILLOW: There’re no novels that I like to read so I write my own novels, and then I read them again, and it’s the best.
JADEN: [Recurring themes in my music include] the melancholiness of the ocean and the melancholiness of everything else.”
