Recent Podcasts, October 2015

Following his appearance on Another Round, I listened to Ta-Nehisi Coates on Longform from 2014, where I have also recently enjoyed interviews with Jessica Hopper, Ira Glass, and Tavi Gevinson. Having seen Isabelle O’Carroll sing the praises of some of my favourite Desert Island Discs (Lemn Sissay, Zadie Smith), I visited her recommendation of the Doug Allan episode whilst on a Paris-London bus this week. I also used the bus journey to take a long-overdue dip into two podcasts I’d been meaning to listen to, starting with the first episode of Reply All – which looked at Miranda July’s imminently-doomed Somebody app – and then a first listen of W. Kamau Bell’s Denzel Washington Is The Greatest Actor of All Time Period podcast, starting with a recent episode featuring the very funny Hari Kondabolu.

I have just finished Coates’s ‘Between the World and Me’, which you can buy here.
