A Phone Call From Paul
Briefly, we point lovers of The New York Public Library Podcast (and/or lovers of smarty-pants people talking capital-letter Art) to this new show, A Phone Call From Paul. In it, gloriously-voiced NYPL Live director Paul Holdengraber gets on the blower with one of his erudite pals - thinker Alain de Botton, science-fiction master William Gibson, poet Claudia Rankine, author Cheryl Strayed - for a little chat. Expect musings on philosophy, writing, making and living over the course of an intimate conversation, and also to wish that Holdengraber had your number. A pleasure.
