Customer Reviews


Four star for the show in general.
Two star for Jonathan Franzen’s talk: extremely boring and stoic.

You have to go to the website to connect

Finally City Arts and Lectures is available in podcast. It is not indexed in the search function for this app. You have to go to the City Arts and Lectures website, click on “radio broadcasts” and then click on the shows that are hyperlinked. That will bring you to the episode you chose. Then scroll to “more (available) episodes” to download other broadcasts.

Jill Soloway

I have loved City Arts since the 1990s, but the show with Jill Soloway et al ... my god. Sarah Palin introduces blatantly racist language in public? And you wonder why people of color are not eager to align with you. I can’t believe that nobody in your group reminded the idiot who made that statement of the violent language we’ve been employing to keep black people marginalized for centuries.
