Modern Love: Listen: Cory Michael Smith Reads ‘Catfishing Strangers to Find Myself’


On this week’s Modern Love podcast, Cory Michael Smith reads “Catfishing Strangers to Find Myself.”

Kalle Oskari Mattila’s essay, published in 2016, tells the story of his assuming the guise of a Pamela Anderson-like character in an internet chat room.

Mr. Smith’s reading took place at the Provincetown Film Festival in June. He appears in the television series “Gotham” and in the 2018 film “1985.”

Stay tuned after the reading for thoughts from the Modern Love editor Daniel Jones, Mr. Mattila and Mr. Smith.
