This week we talk to pop-folk singer/songwriter Regina Spektor. She tells us about her latest album, What We Saw From The Cheap Seats, and what it was like growing up in Russia. Author Jonathan Merritt also joins us to talk about “10 Things That Defined the Last Decade” (which he wrote about in the current issue of RELEVANT). Plus, a pastor encounters a ninja, Jesse tries to wrap his head around modern art, and we discover a real-life mermaid.
