Novelist Nicholson Baker joins Tom, Laurie, and Evan Kindley to discuss his new book, Substitute: Going to School with a Thousand Kids, the story of Baker’s time as a substitute teacher in a Maine public school system. This morphs into a fascinating discussion of pedagogy in light of the everyday realities of contemporary American public schooling and the issues modern schoolteachers confront to teach children.
