Here are some podcasts I like

A friend recently asked for podcast recommendations. I used to listen to many, many more, but the list below is what’s currently in my media player:

The Field Negro Guide To Arts & Culture
(Musician Vernon Reid and comedian W. Kamau Bell discuss arts, culture, race and more)

The Pod F. Tompkast
(Comedian Paul F. Tompkins narrates, plays characters, talks with comedian Jen Kirkman and more)

Le Show
(The radio show of Harry Shearer. It’s been on the air for 20+ years. Mostly Harry talking and reading things in his acerbic way.)

Professor Blastoff
(Tig Notaro and two other comedians talk about science)

In Our Time
(Melvyn Bragg and a changing cast of smart people discuss everything via the BBC)

The Dead Authors Podcast
(Paul F. Tompkins as HG Wells interviews dead writers)

Poetry Off The Shelf
(Curtis Fox talks about poetry in an accessible, user-friendly-but-still-smart way. Usually with the poets themselves.)

Poem Talk
(Al Filreis of Kelly Writers House talks about poetry with a panel. This is usually very high-level conversation, but I still often find things that make me look at and listen to poetry in a new way.)

Kevin Allison hosts a show “where people tell true stories they never thought they’d dare to share in public.”
