For Episode 013 of the podcast Megan let me record her reading selections from both The Prairie Opens Wide and Because Everyone Doesn't Speak the Same Language in her University of Kansas office. Her officemate, Adam Desnoyers, politely opened the office door and reached into the room, placing his coffee cup on a bookshelf before politely withdrawing his arm and closing the door again, while we were recording, so as not to disturb us.
