I'm a writer and editor living in Minneapolis. My day job is as a digital producer at Minnesota Public Radio's The Current, where among other projects I host/write our Rock and Roll Book Club feature and co-host our Music News videos. I'm also a co-founder of The Tangential and theater critic at City Pages. Books I've written, co-written, or co-edited include Sociology for Dummies (second edition, 2021), Wildsam Field Guides: Twin Cities (2020), Sexts from the Sea (2016), Bright Lights, Twin Cities (2014), Future Cities (2013), and Reconstructing the University (2006). I'm on Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, Tumblr, Instagram, and Snapchat — where you can probably figure out how to find me. Gmail: jaygabler. (Photo at right: Helen Teague/MPR.)
