Kurt Andersen and co-host Kristen Schaal take the stage at Brooklyn's Galapagos Art Space in a bold quest to perform magic on the radio. They enlist the help of magician Steve Cuiffo (of the three-man show "Elephant Room") -- and Kristen reveals her own fiery (albeit visual) magic trick. Also: stand up comedy from writer Jessi Klein and a performance from musical guest Eleanor Friedberger of The Fiery Furnaces. Plus, as always, Kurt calls upon the entire cast to help tell a story about life in the city.
