About & contact


I’ve been listening to hours of podcasts every day for more than a decade. Each week I post the best of what I’ve heard, sprinkling in some classics from the past.

This site would not be possible without Listen Notes. The Listen Later links take you to Listen Notes where you can listen immediately or save to a personalised podcast feed (click the  button). Ultimately I’d like to do this with one click from this site, but I’m still to work out how to do that.

While I have favourite podcasts (e.g., EconTalk, Conversations with Tyler, In Our Time, and Freakonomics) many of the posted episodes result from searching for author interviews after reading book reviews in Literary Review, The Economist, the Browser and Farnam Street.

If you’re looking for the podcasts curated by the Browser, please go to The Listener (which is not affiliated with this site).

Suggestions and feedback always welcome.
