Who's Afraid of On the Media?

Who's Afraid of On the Media? Bob and Brooke on set.

Brooke Gladstone and Bob Garfield spend an hour each week of On the Media engaging in probing conversation of important issues. So naturally, when we needed two people to reenact a vicious drunken argument, they came to mind immediately.  For the latest installment of our American Icons series, producer Trey Kay asked Bob and Brooke to perform a parody published in Mad Magazine of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.  They take on the characters of George and Martha, best known from Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton’s portrayal of the unhappiest theatrical couple this side of the Macbeths. We think Brooke and Bob more than hold their own against Liz and Dick, if we do say so ourselves.

I was introduced to Mad Magazine by my Jewish friends in 1967. It introduced me to a different way of looking at American culture...the magazine...ironically we called it that was and still is --- a gas.
