Glenn Loury, Sr., is a big, warm and fiercely intelligent man. His son, Glen Loury, Jr. – in all important respects – is just exactly the same. If you want to spend some fruitful minutes exploring the fraught landscape of sexual identity, class division, racial reality, and generational conflict in America, you have come to the right place.

Loury, Sr. was born in Chicago, Illinois. In 1972, he received his bachelor's degree in mathematics from Northwestern University. In 1976 he received his Ph.D. in economics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is currently the Merton P. Stoltz Professor of the Social Sciences and Professor of Economics, and a research associate of the Population Studies and Training Center.

Loury, Jr. was born in Brookline, Massachusetts. He is a graduate of Haverford College. Among his many projects, he reviews movies at "Just A Bloody Blog". And co-hosts "The Glenn Show" with his father at Blogging Heads TV.
