FOUND Magazine's Davy Rothbart: "On February 14, 2000, I took the Greyhound bus from Detroit to Buffalo to visit a girl named Lauren Hill. Not Lauren Hill the singer but another Lauren Hill, who'd gone to my high school, and now, almost 10 years later, was about to become my girlfriend, I hoped." From "Human Snowball," one of the essays in "My Heart Is An Idiot," the new collection from author, creator of FOUND Magazine and "This American Life" contributor Davy Rothbart. He joins us on Weekday.
