Savage Ben Lerner takedown

This is the only podcast that satisfies both my interest in literature in translation and trashy gossip about literary figures. Cool music too.

dismissive opinions

I like that this podcast comes at the publishing from a different angle but the hosts have this habit of declaring that any given book is "just bad" and then move along in the discussion without explaining why they have that opinion. To me this comes across as arrogant. It's like they're saying their opinion is the ONLY opinion and obviously it's the correct opinion so no need to give an explanation. I'm like, check your ego guys.
