I'll admit it: when it comes to Chuck Klosterman I'm a bit of a super-fan. No, I'm not going to kidnap his bunny or stalk his home. But when the opportunity came up to chat with Chuck for a bit, I begged, screamed and lobbied for the opportunity.

Before we handed the airwaves over to Chuck, we spoke about his relationship with Craig Finn, the frontman of The Hold Steady, who has paid to option his book Fargo Rock City into a movie. We also touched on his recent hiring at ESPN, his forthcoming book and former Guns 'n Roses axeman, Slash (with uproarious results). I don't think I've ever laughed so hard on the radio.

Chuck played a "time travel" themed set for us.
