Join us as we host two
journalists who have delved deep into hidden subcultures. In Leaving
Mundania
, the editor of Fringe literary journal Lizzie Stark hacks her way into the
magical realm of live-action role-playing, where normal people shed their
business suits to don armor and robes for extravagant, gigantic games of
make-believe.

In The Cornbread
Mafia
, journalist James Higdon exposes the
legacy and legal battles surrounding the largest homegrown marijuana syndicate
in American history. With unprecedented access into this secretive group,
Higdon examines the hidden side of the war on drugs.

Buzz Bissinger (Friday Night Lights, Three Nights in August) is the father of twin boys who couldn’t be more different: Gerry is a grad student at Penn; Zach is a savant, challenged by serious intellectual deficits but blessed with rare talents. Realizing that he’s never understood what it’s like to be his son, Buzz hits the road with Zach on a trip through the best and worst parts of America and learns to see his son for what he is: a man of great character. Susan Orlean calls it “a triumph.”
