Hal Crowther, An Infuriating American

Season 1700 Episode 1720 | 26m 45s

The Biography of H. L. Mencken. While known as maybe the best American English writer ever, he was also possibly the best at being the biggest jerk. He was able to make folks laugh and be appalled at the same time. A talent that comes from a place that doesn't allow for nice guys.
