Ep.6 Resource Guide
By Big Ed Barnham
Summer's away recording a fiction podcast this week, which is a pretty good opportunity for me to dive into some of the podcasts I've been known to listen to regularly or on sporadic occasion.
KCRW's Bookworm is a regular listen for me, mostly because something about Michael Silverblatt's voice takes me to a place that feels like public radio of the 1970s...when I would have been a kid listening to public radio in my allergist's office in Newport, Kentucky. Not that Michael Silverblatt was on the radio then, it's just the feeling I have when I listen to him. That's an odd reason to like a podcast…wait…not it isn't. It's a perfect reason to like a podcast. He also has great conversations that delve into every aspect of reading, writing, and storytelling.
Okay that's really the extent of my book podcast listening; there's just too much stuff out there for the ear. That said, a local podcast I've been giving a listen lately is Go Away, I'm Reading.
Since Kenny shares some of his art in this episode, he's another piece of art I found while reading and researching Anna Karenina. It's Keira Knightley as Anna by Vasilly Ist using charcoal, mechanical pencil, and a white gel pen.
