The only 9/11 podcast that matters.

This dude uses his incredibly soothing voice to dissect the cultural significance of various large sports events in the weeks following the 9/11 attacks. Among other things. Is there a podcast more perfectly tailored to all my interests? Unlikely. Peace to Hannah Arendt! Walter Benjamin please stand up!

Love this show

Never Forget Radio is striking. This is a subject difficult to navigate without getting sort circuited by nationalism and yet NFR manages to offer the most honest coverage of 9/11 and its aftermath I've ever encountered. If you're into history, art, or politics you need to be listening to this podcast.
