Brilliant thoughtful podcast

The Sewanee Review podcast is one of the best literary podcasts that I’ve listened to. I started listening to this on a morning walk and kept walking so I could listen to four episodes in a row. I learned so much about writing from each. The Garth Greenwell episode is especially excellent. The sound design is perfectly suited to the mood of each interview. The interviewers ask such thoughtful questions and are rewarded with insightful answers from the writers who are being interviewed. Listening to this feels like eavesdropping on an intimate conversation between friends.

Amazing guests, thoughtful conversations

Love this podcast from one of my favorite lit mags! Garth Greenwell is superb in the first podcast, and I can’t wait until the other outstanding conversations with authors are released. Bravo, SR!
