Week 16: Dan Caffrey

April 17 - 22


Dan Caffrey is a playwright and pop-culture critic living in Chicago. In August, he'll be attending the University of Texas at Austin to pursue his MFA in Playwriting with the Department of Theatre and Dance. His work has appeared on The A.V. Club, Comic Book Resources, Pitchfork, Vox, and Consequence of Sound, where he's one of the hosts of The Losers' Club: A Stephen King Podcast. The Losers recently started discussing The Stand. Between that, attending the March for Science, and using a dead woolly mammoth as a prompt for Your Uncle Richard this past week, he's been feeling like a tiny speck on a big rock hurtling through space.
