‘Joshie & The Chocolate Factory’ / Snap Judgment Live

When there was a strike at the local candy factory, I had to choose between my love for chocolate…and my communist grandma. Something every 10-year-old boy goes through, right? Watch my newest story for NPR’s Snap Judgment, filmed live at Ann Arbor’s Power Center.

And yes, the two background songs for my story are The Internationale (aka the Communist Party anthem)…and the Oompa Loompa theme song from Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. A-maz-ing.

That combo just about sums me up as a human being.

God is good. Chocolate is delicious. And the best kind of strike doesn’t happen at a bowling alley.
