Stuck on a train for an hour every day and sick of sudoku? Hands love to knit but the brain gets bored? Riding out the recession as a streetcorner sign-twirler? Or maybe you've just got a burning desire for "cultural conversation of the depth you demand." If so, then Metafilter's own Colin Marshall
has got what you need at the Marketplace of Ideas
Available as a podcast or broadcast live on KCSB, the conversations at the Marketplace of Ideas are serious but never solemn, on topics ranging from medieval history to Brian Eno. Recent guests include Steven Moore
on his 700 page history of the novel up to 1600, AV Club writer Nathan Rabin
on cinematic failure, Gabriel Josipovici
on Whatever Happened to Modernism?
, Sarak Blakewell
on Montaigne, David Toop
on silent art, and Geoff Dyer
talking. Delve further back for conversations with Tyler Cowen, Tom McCarthy, James Wood, Kwame Anthony Appiah, Peter Sagal, Steve Wozniak, and Bookworm host Michael Silverblatt describing himself as "cute." [via mefi projects
