Hilaritas podcast on James Joyce

Loic Wright

Taking advantage of a long car drive, I listened to the new Hilaritas Press podcast on James Joyce, about an hour long. Irish fiction scholar Loic Wright does a fine job of discussing Joyce's career and covering the major works. I did miss the absence of any discussion of how Joyce influenced RAW's writings; that could take up an entire podcast of its own, and Eric Wagner would be a good guest for such a show.

A second opinion from Oz Fritz, from the comments: "Excellent recap and lots of amazing, interesting anecdotes about a master of language."

Mike Gathers does a good job as a genial but probing host, as usual. Follow the link for listening notes, tips on finding an app to listen to all of the podcasts, etc. 

Antero Alli, noted for his study of the Eight Circuit model of consciousness, will be featured on the next episode, due for release on May 23.

Thank you for your suggestion, Tom. I have just started listening to the Joyce podcast, and I like it so far.
