Nathan Rabin! We totally geek out and take the Radio Labyrinth time machine back to the very late 1970s and the 1980s. In those heady days, a hero was born to lead all of nerd-kind from out of the darkness: "Weird" Al Yankovic.
Nathan is the author of two Weird Al books (books), and was asked by Al himself to write them. The depths of Nathan's pop culture knowledge are vast and we hope to have him back to go even deeper into the labyrinth.

From Nathan's bio:
"He’s also written five books: The Big Rewind, My Year Of Flops, Weird Al: The Book, You Don’t Know Me But You Don’t Like Me (which was named a “Best Book of the Year” by both Slate and Rolling Stone, which gave the book a four star review), and, most recently, 7 Days In Ohio: Trump, the Gathering of the Juggalos and the Summer Everything Went Insane, which was just released in a hugely expanded version. Rabin was also a panelist on Movie Club With John Ridley, a show hosted by Oscar-winning 12 Years A Slave screenwriter. He’s sung onstage with They Might Be Giants, attended five Gathering of the Juggalos and thirty-something Phish shows in addition to appearing on podcasts with the likes of Marc Maron, Scott Aukerman, Harris Wittels and the Sklar Brothers. He is currently a columnist at The A.V Club, Rotten Tomatoes, TCM Backlot and Splitsider and is working on a book about the video game and movie Postal and Donald Trump. He lives in Decatur with his dog and baby and wife and is trying his damnedest to learn how to drive. He’s trying, man. He really is."
