Podcast of the Week: SongWriter with Ben Arthur

Posted by Greg on Aug 6, 2019 in Music |


As our appetite for podcasts continues to grow, we’re absolutely loving SongWriter, a podcast hosted by Ben Arthur, host of the PBS television series SongCraft presents. This latest episode features Pulitzer Prize-nominated writer Joyce Carol Oates and multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Ted Leo.

The Oates-Leo episode is the fifth to date this year and was recorded live at a Joe’s Pub performance in New York City. During the podcast, Oates reads from her short story Deceit and Leo documenting how Oates’ writings have influenced his work.

SongWriter features a dozen episodes with many of Arthur’s literary crushes sharing their stories, including Roxane Gay, Joyce Carol Oates, Susan Orlean, Patricia Lockwood, Missy Eaves, Gary Schteyngart, and Jonathan Lethem.
