And..."Dude, this computer is noisy and I can't figure out how to tweet." A St. Louis artist and poet explains why he's placed typewriters all around the city -- and the response he's getting from whippersnappers who can't find the "Enter" key.
As It Happens, the Tuesday edition. Radio that knows it's exhausting doing old-fashioned shift work.
