Recent Listens, Late September 2015

Today I listened to Eimear McBride from the Guardian Books Podcast archive, in anticipation of her talk at Shakespeare & Co.; Zadie Smith, Owen Jones and David Willetts on social mobility (and education’s role therein) for Radio Four’s Start The Week in 2013; and the Velvet Underground’s 2009 interview at the New York Public Library, whose podcast archives have sprung me into the divergent lives and brilliant stories of Cheryl Strayed, Kara Walker, and Sonia Sotomayor in the past week.
