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 co-host our daily Music News podcast. I'm also a co-founder of The Tangential. I'm the theater critic at City Pages, and I have contributed to numerous other publications. Books I've written, co-written, or co-edited include Sexts from the Sea (2016), The Summer of 40 (2015), Bright Lights, Twin Cities (2014), Future Cities (2013), Sociology for Dummies (2010), Insiders' Guide to the Twin Cities (2010), and Reconstructing the University (2006). I'm on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, and Snapchat — where you can probably figure out how to find me. Gmail: jaygabler. (Photo at right: Nate Ryan/MPR.)
