Sebastian Bonner ,

Like listening in on a fiction writing master class.

The host is the New Yorker’s fiction editor whose interviews are superb. I’ve been introduced to some wonderful authors, both the story writers and the readers (who are also published authors).

amazing show — crazy ad volumes!

this show is such a wonderful gift to the world — it has helped me deepen my appreciation of literature more than anything.

but i jumped out of my skin and almost drove off the road when an ear-splitting advertisement came in on the middle! isn’t wnyc involved in producing this? i would have thought they would have that kind of stuff sorted out!
