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. I'm also a co-founder of The Tangential and, from 2016 to 2020, served as the last theater critic at City Pages (R.I.P.). 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, TikTok, and Snapchat — where you can probably figure out how to find me. Gmail: jaygabler. (Photo at right: Helen Teague/MPR.)
