Hi Wayne,I think a number of visitors to this blog would be interested in the online interview and weekly podcasts on Jewish literature, which, of course, forms a context for the study of the Hebrew Bible.
I run a series of podcats on Jewish literature and culture for Nextbook, and this week I've got a story online that I thought, from reading your site you might be interested in.
I've interviewed former poet-laureate-of-the US, Robert Pinsky, on the life of David... as a poet, warrior, father, king. Pinsky has just written a book on the subject, and it's pretty good stuff.
It's really a touching podcast, and I'm very proud of the way it turned out. In particular, Pinsky's discussion on Michal/women, and his reading of the Elegy for Saul is SO moving...
Any chance you might help me spread the word? We work so hard on these things, and I really want folks to hear this....
Here's a link: http://www.nextbook.org/cultural/feature.html?id=188 If you just click on "listen to podcast" you should be able to hear the interview!!!
Thanks so much!
