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 video each weekday. I'm also a co-founder of The Tangential. Books I've written, co-written, or co-edited include Sexts from the Sea (2016), Bright Lights, Twin Cities (2014), Future Cities (2013), Sociology for Dummies (2010), 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.)
