Last week's winner:
. . . As you bundle into cars and airplanes this Christmas season, give yourself some podcast treats: grab some interesting talks from our favourite spots. Before going anywhere, Comment loads up on:
- CBC Radio's The Vinyl Cafe
The American Life
The New York Times Podcasts
The New Yorker Out Loud
- NPR's Planet Money
Mars Hill Audio, especially Audition
The Marketplace Institute, Regent College
- Cardus' own audio journal, think
- And for Dan Postma, Pardon the Interruption
. . . Finally, you can all probably think of someone who should receive this for Christmas: Rouault Fujimura Soliloquies, combining the efforts of French painter Georges Rouault and Comment author Mako Fujimura of IAM. The book is published by Comment contributor Ned Bustard of Square Halo Press in Pennsylvania, and is available at 10% off from our favourite bookseller, Hearts & Minds Books. The art is also featured in a show on NOW at the Dillon Gallery in New York City. What's not to love?
