Here’s another great story from “The Dinner Party Download” last week, celebrating the glamorous Jet Set age of airline travel.
“Jet Set: The People, The Planes, The Glamour and the Romance in Aviation’s Glory Years,” a new book by William Stadiem, describes the arc from luxury travel in the 1950s and 60s to the cattle car conditions of today.

I laughed out loud last week when I heard this story about hanger on “The Dinner Party Download.”
“Hanger” is a portmanteau describing the intersection of “hunger” and “anger,” a horrible state with which I am occasionally – and scarily – afflicted.

Here’s a great article that explains it all.
If you’re like me and have painfully stepped on a Lego brick one too many times, then you’ll love this essay by Arlaina Tibensky.
What is almost even better than reading the essay is hearing it on last week’s “Dinner Party Download,” which is a great show on NPR. Click here for the audio version.
It made me laugh out loud.
