STAY ANGRY, LITTLE MEG
Many of us grew up reading and rereading “A Wrinkle in Time” by Madeleine L’Engle. Last year we helped launch a podcast about a new books of short stories by the author called The Moment of Tenderness.
The podcast is a beautiful introduction to the book, as well as an exploration of the life of an author, hosted by Charlotte Jones Voikilis, one of Madeleine’s granddaughters.
We had to put production on hold when the pandemic hit, but please enjoy this journey back to a more peaceful moment of 2020 and stay tuned for new episodes coming soon.
COOPERATING WITH THE FEDS
If only we’d all known how much we’d need to know about federal law. Fortunately we have the Feds. That would be the Talking Feds.
The Talking Feds podcast is hosted by former US Attorney Harry Litman, is a weekly roundtable discussion that brings together some of the most well-known former prosecutors in the country for a dynamic and entertaining analysis of the most pressing questions in high-profile criminal cases, including the Mueller probe and related investigations. Regular guests include Barbara McQuade, Mimi Rocah, Paul Fishman, Matthew Miller, and features a segment I love called Sidebar, where people like Rob Reiner, Phillip Glass and Lori Anderson explain the core legal concepts behind the Mueller Report and associated investigations.

YES THEY ARE
Clever is a wonderful podcast about design and designers. They’ve interviewed some incredible designers you know and don’t know. My favorite is an episode with Todd Oldham.
Amy Devers and Jaime Derringer really dive in with their guests, finding out all about what led them to design, their philosophy of design and life, and so much more.
Clever is often featured at some really great live events, including that time we all ended up in an Airstream trailer with Aaron Draplin and Jessica Hische, and a wonderful recent event at Helms Bakery, highlighting the people who are combatting knockoffs in the design industry. Check out our live events page for lots of fun pictures.
