Super Sunday podcast alert

I heard there was some kind of big deal professional sports event going on today. In case you don’t give a damn, or you need something to drown out the game playing in the next room, there’s a dynamite podcast waiting for you at the Lannan Foundation, where you can listen in as Junot Diaz, author of the Pulitzer-winning The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, shares the podium with SF legend Samuel R. Delany. Meanwhile, Bat Segundo  has posted talks with Azar Nafisi, author of Reading Lolita in Tehran and the recent Things I’ve Been Silent About, and David Denby, the New Yorker film critic whose denunciation of snarkiness has been getting lots of snarky reviews. And Melvyn Bragg talks about just how close to the bone satire can get.

    Thanks for the Delany-Diaz link. I had heard about the event, but not the podcast. Good listening ahead!
