Episode 8: Jim Phelan & Brian McHale — “Chicxulub” by By T. C. Boyle

In this month’s episode of the Project Narrative Podcast, our faithful host, Jim Phelan, finally finds himself in the guest chair! Alongside today’s host, Brian McHale, Jim reads and discusses “Chicxulub” by prolific American author, T.C. Boyle. Jim is a Distinguished University Professor of English at the Ohio State University, Director of the Medical Humanities Program, and co-founder and Director of Project Narrative. To borrow Brian McHale’s words, Jim “has a keen eye for stories that invite and reward the narrative theorist’s close attention. The story he selected for today is case in point.”
