At least 12 million people listen to Osgood every day on CBS radio, and millions more watch him on
CBS News Sunday Morning. All of them would agree that no one delivers quite the way he does the offbeat stories that make listeners stop and pay attention; the commentaries in which he shares his sense of wonder, dismay, or amusement; and the well-spun tales of irony that often burst forth into wordplay or even poetry.
See You on the Radio gathers together some of the best of Osgood's work - over 100 essays on everything from potholes, perfumes, felons, and freeloaders; to psychopaths and politicians (more alike than you think); to earthquakes, animal heirs, and the advancement of science. ("Osgood's First Law: Just because something is obvious doesn't necessarily mean that science isn't going to discover it tomorrow.")
