Weekly Assignment

As a college professor, I’ve started having my literature students listen to this amazing podcast. You really can’t hear these famous writers at such a personal level any where else. Loved every minute!

Great listen!!!

First of all Mitchell Kaplan has the voice for this stuff. I would joyfully listen to him read the nutritional information off of a box of cereal!

This podcast makes you feel like you just made a great new friend who looks like a regular dude, but you find out he happens to knows tons of smart, interesting, and famous people....he invites you to grab a cup of coffee and when you get there Walter Mosley is sitting there eating a Cuban Sandwich!!!

The Literary Life

These podcasts are simply fantastic! Mitchell Kaplan is an extraordinary talent and a magical interviewer. The episodes not only entertain but also offer unusual insight into the heart of America’s literary community.
