Favorite Podcasts

These are some of the GREAT podcasts that are in my ear (Summer 2021):

The Cine-Files

Steve Morris (director/teacher) and John Rocha (voice actor/critic) discuss great films, their themes, history, and influence each week.

Fatal Attractions

A podcast devoted to erotic thrillers (perhaps a dead genre of film today); co-hosted by film critics/fans from the UK and France (Matthew Turner, Leslie Pitt, Amelie Thomas and Paul Costello).


This podcast is hosted by my (real life) friend from NYC days, Sugi Ganeshananthan, and her fellow novelist/academic- Whitney Terrell. They discuss literature (past and present), interview (diverse) authors, and make connections to current events.

In the Thick

Hosted by journos Maria Hinojosa and Julio Ricardo Varela who go beyond mainstream news and have frank convos re: race, identity, politics, etc.

A Single Serving Podcast

Created and hosted by Shani Silver, this podcast is changing the narrative around being single.
