Darts & Letters

Darts & Letters

episodes

Darts and Letters is about ‘arts and letters,’ but for the kind of people who might hack a dart. We cover public intellectualism and the politics of academia from a left populist perspective. Put simply: we love ideas, but hate snob culture. Each week, we interview thinkers about key debates that are relevant to the left. We discuss politics, arts, culture, and ideas. But the show is for everyone. That means sometimes you'll hear from the usual suspects, like that authoritative old professor; but just as often, you'll hear from the young iconoclastic scholar, the crass podcaster, the journalist, the activist--even so-called 'ordinary working people.' We're here to discover exciting intellectual life, wherever that might be.

The Proust Questionnaire Podcast

The Proust Questionnaire Podcast

episodes

What motivates creative people to do what they do, especially when they use their drive, determination and talents to change the world? The Proust Questionnaire is thought in action. It's a personality test that allows us a glimpse behind the proverbial curtain of creative people's minds. Each guest answers the same 35 questions that were first popularized as a parlor game by French novelist Marcel Proust about a hundred years ago. But these questions are timeless, and you’ll quickly find yourself thinking with our guests, rather than about their answers. Be moved, entertained, and inspired to do good yourself when you listen to our guests tell us what they love, fear, and hope for in these oral portraits of great minds.
