A Great Pod!

What I appreciate most about The Culture Journalist is that while it most certainly deals with heady topics — art, the internet, the so-called “discourse,” and the ways in which these things inform and influence each other — it always does so in a welcoming manner, respecting the listener’s intelligence while presenting them with ideas, conversations, and guests that will expand their worldview.

Fascinating and accessible

I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time! Great pod

Super Smart and Insightful

A much needed and somewhat unique perspective on culture through the lens of people who are extremely well informed. Consistently interesting guests, discussing cutting edge and important topics you probably won’t find much of elsewhere. Well worth your time.
