On today's show, I talk to humor writer Simon Rich. Born in New York City, Rich is the son of New York Times and New York Magazine writer Frank Rich. Simon started writing at a young age, and has published two novels and three collections of humor. His most recent Spoiled Brats was released last year. He's also written for Saturday Night Live and was a staff writer at Pixar. Also, Simon created the show Man Seeking Woman for FX, which was just picked up for a second season.
