From UC Berkeley, a books-and-arts podcast about the cultural imagination — what Joan Didion once called the stories we tell ourselves to live. C&V delves into novels, nonfiction, poems, music, film, and other touchstones of our culture, with an eye to the spells they cast and the questions they raise. Sponsored by Berkeley's Townsend Center for the Humanities and hosted by Scott Saul, Chapter & Verse features artists, critics, historians and journalists, with a guest list that radiates outward from the ranks of the Berkeley faculty to the larger cultural community of the Bay Area and beyond.

Eclectic, engaging conversations

Part of the attraction of this podcast is the range of topics: the host, Scott Saul, allows his eclectic interests and curiosity to guide his choice of subjects—Yoko Ono, obscure books of the Old Testament, the Brazilian modernist, Clarice Lispector. But what really makes this podcast is that Saul is such a great conversationalist—he’s an astute reader and critic in his own right, so his take on these subjects is always interesting, but he also finds really interesting guests, and he lets them talk.

off to a great start!

Chapter & Verse is eclectic in the best way possible — so far, covering topics that I would never have the time or wherewithal to stumble upon on my own, yet found myself fascinated by. Saul also does a nice job having casual, but very smart conversations with experts, giving them space to talk about what they know best in a way that is accessible to people (like me) who otherwise have little to no knowledge off areas like 60s feminist art or translations of the Hebrew bible. Looking forward to future episodes!
