Adventures of a Funny Southern Woman

Celia Rivenbark, one of our favorite humor columnists, is out with a new collection of essays, "You Don't Sweat Much for a Fat Girl" (St. Martin's Griffin, 2011). In it, she riffs on yoga, Twitter, sleeping hip-hop stars, cinema and, of course, Aunt Verlie.

Host Frank Stasio talks with Rivenbark about her glamorous life and hears her pitch for moving Garrison Keillor's Lake Wobegon to the South.
