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.

I enjoy this podcast so much, and would love to read the books discussed. Is there a place where I can find the titles and writers? Sometimes I am unable to make notes while listening

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?
