470: Show Me the Way
Act Two

Oh! The Places You Will Not Go!

A man who believes he's turning into a cockroach reaches out to a world famous doctor for advice. Except the doctor will only respond in rhyme. This story was written and performed by David Rakoff and Jonathan Goldestein, with a cameo by Julie Snyder. It originally aired on the CBC show Wiretap. Jonathan Goldstein's book I'll Seize the Day Tomorrow is out in paperback. Before he died in 2012, David Rakoff finished a final book, a novel written in rhyme called Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish, A Novel By David Rakoff. We devoted an entire episode to David. (13 1/2 minutes)
