I love Jill Lepore. Read "These Truths" word by word, thinking about what she was saying, and learned so much. Just ordered "This America" and can't wait to start. BUT, for interviews, I wish she would smoke some weed or have a drink or both, because she talks like an auctioneer. Please take a breath and slow down! Still, if I only catch every third word, she's awesomely insightful and always keeps me thinking and questioning. Gotta love Prof. Lepore!

Great interviews. I haven't read DFW, and I'll start with the 'Lobster essay. Bazelon's focus on prosecutorial power is very revealing. Definitely on my to-read list.

Without exaggeration, this is my favourite podcast across all genres. No matter what mood I'm in, I'll always be interested in the latest week's episode. Smart, insightful, and a great source of reading inspiration.

great podcast. adds a lot to my week. but is the Times and its editors so puritanical, humorless and squeamish that they can't discuss the eptimology of the word FANNY?
