Upper School English Teacher Angela Balcita’s NYT Modern Love Essay Performed by Sarah Silverman

Ten years ago, Upper School English teacher Angela Balcita wrote an essay for The New York Times’ Modern Love column entitled “Beneath the Modest Alter Ego, I See My Superhero” about receiving a kidney transplant from her boyfriend. Recently, an NPR radio station out of Boston (WBUR) decided to use past essays from the column and make them into podcasts with performances by celebrities. This week, WBUR selected Angela’s essay to feature, and comedian Sarah Silverman performs the piece. Afterward, Angela and her husband Chris give the audience an update about life after the original piece was published. 

A huge congrats to Angela!
