KCRW considers DFW

KCRW is arguably the greatest English language public radio station in existence, and I’ve been a big fan of their pioneering efforts in podcasting for many years now; a Friday afternoon just isn’t the same without my Left, Right and Center fix.

Bookworm is another must-listen, hosted by the always-insightful Michael Silverblatt.  Silverblatt recently joined book critic Anthony Miller for a special edition of Politics of Culture to discuss the death of David Foster Wallace, particularly his  “impact on fiction, his generation and American culture…[and why] many feel that the death of Wallace is to literature what the death of Kurt Cobain was to rock music.”  KCRW has also created a special archive page for their past shows featuring/about DFW.
