Hi there, Article Clubbers! This month, we’re reading and discussing “Jerry and Marge Go Large,” by writer Jason Fagone.

Last week, I got the chance to talk with Mr. Fagone and ask him some of our questions. He was generous and thoughtful — and shared some extra details about Jerry and Marge that are delightful. Please take a listen!

Also, there’s good news: If you liked the article as much as I did, it’s now out in hardcover, as a physical book. I got my signed copy — it’s well made and beautifully designed — and you can get yours here.

After listening to the interview, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments. Did anything surprise you or change your ideas about the article?
