Don Chaffer is a singer-songwriter (Waterdeep), a composer-lyricist-librettist (Son of a Gun, The Unusual Tale of Mary and Joseph’s Baby), and a professor (Lipscomb University’s School of Music). His stories are often sad and often funny—and often at the same time. In this “Sad Stories Told for Laughs” episode, Don Chaffer and I talk about ironic distance, the difference between embarrassment and shame, and other matters.
