In Defense Of Puns 16

A snappy comeback, delivered with just the right amount of zing, can make you the life of the party or the hero of the office. James Geary joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the importance of wit in everyday life, and to make the case that puns – yes puns! – may be the highest form of wit. His new book is called “Wit’s End: What Wit Is, How It Works, and Why We Need It” (W.W. Norton & Co.).
