About this Episode

On today's podcast, I sat down with Greg Carlisle, a theater professor at Morehead State University in Morehead, Kentucky. I was playing a show in Lexington, so I rented a car and came to visit him. We talked about what inspired him to write his "Elegant Complexity" book, a companion piece to David Foster Wallace's "Infinite Jest". In this episode, we speculate on why "Infinite Jest" is so populary, and like a Sierpinski triangle, try to fill in the unknown parts of the mysterious plot of Wallace's book. A great talk with a brilliant teacher and writer - thanks Greg!
