If you thought you were the only person with a demonic inner critic, musician Matt Nathanson is here to assure you that, not only do we all face down the naysayer, there may even be a role for pessimism. Host Kelly Corrigan and Nathanson trade stories about what keeps them chipping away at making art, and offer up a survival manual for arguing with a spouse. Hint: it involves a 5-year-old.
