If you haven’t discovered Reith Lectures (BBC, Radio 4), here is your chance. Topics vary and this year’s (2019) lecturer was Jonathan Sumption. The lectures and Q&A that follow are enlightening and entertaining. (It’s a 5-part series.)

“2019: Jonathan Sumption

The Reith Lectures

The 12/29/17 episode of On the Media was magnificent. It’s almost always a fabulous radio program / podcast, but they outdid themselves with this year-end episode titled: The Feelings Show. You will listen, brighten, roll your eyes, breathe, laugh, wonder, frown, groan, and then head off for that proverbial beer. (It’s a meme, apparently, that beer with friends thing, or maybe a trope? Who knows? I’m not complaining; it’s also a kind of hyyge.)

So, tune in, not out, and be prepared to want to play the episode again, and even again. It’s that good – and good for you. From Rebecca Solnit, to the worst meditator ever (but the nicest and funniest), to one of our two beloved Radio Lab hosts, Jad Abumrad – and our equally beloved On the Media hosts.
