Erratic Dialogues is a monthly broadcast in which the hosts, Claudette Palomares and Gabriella Edelstein, discuss happenings in the world of art, theatre and film, as well as literature in all its variety.
A concoction of repartee and arts criticism, these conversations combine the craft of cultural deconstruction over a cup of coffee. This podcast is part of an experiment of how the arts are discussed online and is coupled with essays on erraticdialogues.com. The blog and accompanying dialogue play with form, structure, and storytelling – all the while asking you, the listener, to join the conversation.
