Customer Reviews

Extremists Only

When you hear the word “library,” you may think of freedom of thought, freedom of ideals, a far ranging resource for a plethora of views. Not so with this author event/interview series. The writers are mostly from the Far Left of the spectrum, and if there were a hint of allowing the opposite side to be heard, this would be a podcast worth subscribing to. Now it simply remains an echo chamber.

Great talks both current and past

Free Library of Philadelphia author events began in the early 1990s. A few years ago, the older talks were added to the list of podcasts. All the talks are listed under the author/speaker in the library’s online catalog. These include talks by Susan Sontag, Chinua Achebe and Tony Morrison to name a few. This library is a major educational and cultural resource. Materials and on-line content are available free to anyone living, working or attending school in Pennsylvania and, for a small fee, people living outside the state as well.

Sometimes the sound quality is bad

I love this podcast so much but sometimes it’s unlistenable because they don’t mix the live audio for the podcast. Donate to the library so they can hire an AV person!
