David Remnick is joined by The New Yorker’s award-winning writers, editors, and artists to present a weekly mix of profiles, storytelling, and insightful conversations about the issues that matter ― plus an occasional blast of comic genius from the magazine’s legendary Shouts and Murmurs page. The New Yorker has set a standard in journalism for generations, and The New Yorker Radio Hour gives it a voice on public radio for the first time. Produced by The New Yorker and WNYC Studios. WNYC studios is the producer of leading podcasts including Radiolab, Freakonomics Radio, Note To Self, Here’s The Thing With Alec Baldwin, and more.

Customer Reviews

Still finding its feet, but a good start

There is a lot of potential in this podcast, but there are definitely things that are confusing or don’t seem to fit together. The one thing that really bothers me is the awful intro song: it reeks of the pompous arrogance that the worst articles from the magazine occasionally show. I’ll keep giving it a shot, though.

good start but room for improvement

Podcast with great potential, but David Remnick should really learn to stop interrupting his interview subjects. He doesn't have to show us he's the smartest guy in the room.

Good new show

There is something interesting in every episode, and the Shouts & Murmurs readings are enjoyable (do more Jack Handey!) Since I also listen to the New Yorker Politics podcast, I think there is always overlap, but I understand that most of the listeners of the Radio Hour do not listen to the Politics podcast.
