Description

The Organist podcast is a weekly experimental arts-and-culture program hosted and distributed by KCRW. Edited by the award-winning monthly magazine, Believer, published in San Francisco by McSweeney's, it includes reported stories, interviews, comic radio drama, reviews, and more. The scope of the podcast reflects that of the print edition: its contributors take a thoughtful approach to pop culture, along with an irreverent attitude toward the highbrow. From philosophy to daytime TV, from poetry to martial arts, the show scrutinizes and interrogates the world with an affectionate and rigorous intelligence. Pieces from the podcast grow out of stories in the magazine, and vice versa. Weaving together the voices of its contributors, which include the brightest talents in literature and the arts, The Organist is an elegant, impressionistic, funny, and sharp cultural magazine that itself becomes an object of inquiry, discussion, and wonder. The program is hosted by Andrew Leland and produced by Andrew Leland, Ross Simonini, Jenna Weiss-Berman.

Customer Reviews

Amazing.

This is the first podcast that makes me understand why people like podcasts. Host Andrew Leland is one of the great Internet-radio minds of our time. I would listen to him read the back of cereal boxes. Could not recommend this highly enough.

So, so good

This podcast overwhelms me with joy and I can't wait for more episodes!

Excellent

Love the variety of stories, features and guests. Super interesting and really well produced. A bit like Radiolab. Really excited to hear more!
