This rating is an average...

This is a worthy use of a quarter hour or so per week. Some of the individual podcasts are excellent and some are average, ergo the rating of 4. I find that the enjoyment I get from listening to these varies according to two main factors. The first is the topic and the second is the moderator. I always enjoy the ones like the podcast on bees, because I enjoy learning esoteric information some might call trivia, whereas I have to be in a certain mood or frame of mind for more weighty topics such as our conduct of the war. Uniformly, though, I find the ones moderated by Matt Dellinger to be the best listening. His questions are very good, he doesn't come across as bored or condescending and he has an excellent 'radio voice.'

Solid Background

The podcast is a great audio accompaniment to one of the week's long essays. Since the essays themselves are so often groundbreaking, these interviews are welcome compaions to those long pieces. Is it a full version of the New Yorker? No, and it's not meant to be. For what it is, though, I really enjoy it.

Refreshing and unpretentious

The New Yorker is a relentless magazine that comes every single week, and it's impossible to read all of it while leading a normal life. What I love about this podcast is that it manages to distill the ideas of one article each week in an intelligent, accessible way. The host is a natural at getting the writers to relax and drop their pretensions. It's refreshing in that way. Yet the material is never dumbed down.
