Jeanne’s Podcast Pick of the Week
Jeanne’s Podcast Pick is a weekly First Person Arts blog post that lets Jeanne, the Marketing Intern, share with you a recent story that has sparked her interest from the World Wide Interwebs. Please feel free to comment if you are moved to do so!
Appearing on This American Life has been a career boost for many writers and storytellers. One such case is that of Jonathan Goldstein who had the opportunity to work on the popular show with Ira Glass in 2000. Since then Goldstein has gone on to host his own radio program, Wire Tap, which debuted in 2004.
This month Wire Tap is tackling the unsavory characteristics of the Seven Deadly Sins. The most recent episode was dedicated to Envy. You’ll hear Joseph Epstein author of Gossip: The Untrivial Pursuit describe this deadly sin as the “corroding, small, secret little vice that eats you up from within.”
A quarrel featuring author David Rakoff, a chat with Starlee Kine and a few minutes inside the brain of a frustrated man on a train prove that Envy does indeed have a terribly corroding affect on both thoughts and emotions.
