Kaplan was also a writer/producer for Seinfeld and Six Feet Under, where he was executive producer for the last three seasons. Dan Savage is a journalist, political pundit, frequent contributor to NPR’s This American Life, and the author of The Commitment: Love, Sex, Marriage, and My Family and The Kid: What Happened After My Boyfriend and I Decided to Go Get Pregnant. He is the editorial director for the Seattle newsweekly The Stranger and his syndicated sex-advice column “Savage Love” appears in newspapers in the U.S., Canada, Asia, and Europe.
