Itchy and Scratchy: Funny Exchange From a New Yorker Podcast

Filed under: Looked Into   Tagged: , , ,

In the latest New Yorker Out Loud podcast, Matt Dellinger talks to Atul Gawande about “The Itch,” an investigation into (eek) uncontrollable itching:

Dellinger: Did you itch a lot while writing the piece?
Gawande: Constantly. At various points I would imagine there was a bug on my flank or in my hair, and I’d just have to get up and walk away. At one point I literally did ask my wife to just look and make sure that I didn’t have a bug in my hair!
