Astonishing Audio Experience

Each episode of this podcast is simply beautiful to listen to. A wonderful match of styles to the considerable substance of the material presented, they are all on another level compared to similar offerings and stand up to repeated listens.

My only wish is that the podcast had more output. However, I truly appreciate the amount of effort that must go into each episode and this, in its own way, is part of what makes it special.

Exceptional

This is the best example of a literary podcast I’ve ever heard. Not only that, I think it represents a step in a new direction for podcasts in general. It creates a kind of immersive audio landscape which mirrors and amplifies the experience of reading a literary journal. You’d have to listen to understand what I mean, but I think few podcasts deserve more praise, and I hope they find the audience they so richly deserve.
