Salon contributor Neal Pollack supplements his 14-year-old son Elijah's education with dubious life lessons in his podcast "Extra Credit" on Audible. Their quest takes them to slave plantations in New Orleans, synagogues in Manhattan, and a gun range in San Antonio. They interview Mexican comedians, medical-marijuana refugees, and comic-book creators. Elijah learns something, even though he won't admit it. We've got an exclusive clip from his current season here:

Neal Pollack

Neal Pollack has been the Greatest Living American Writer since the dawn of American letters in the early 1930s, or possibly before. He first came to the public’s attention writing for McSweeney’s in the late 1990s, and then through the publication of "The Neal Pollack Anthology Of American Literature," the greatest book in American literary history, and possibly in the literary history of all the Americas. The author of dozens of books of fiction, nonfiction, fictional nonfiction, poetry, screenplays, interviews, and diet tips, Neal Pollack lives in a mansion on the summit of Mount Winchester with his beleaguered manservant, Roger. He has outlived Christopher Hitchens, Gore Vidal, Norman Mailer, and many more, and will outlive all of you, too. Follow him on Twitter at @Neal Pollack
