We close out the show with a very special interview with former Mayor of Reykjavík, Iceland, Jón Gnarr. Actor, comedian, and anarchist Gnarr became the Mayor of Iceland’s capital city in June 2010 on a radical and tongue-in-cheek platform, including a proclamation that he would not enter a coalition government with anyone that had not watched The Wire. He stepped down on the 16th of this month. Wednesday night at Red Emma’s he will present Gnarr: How I Became the Mayor of a Large City in Iceland and Changed the World.
