Be exquisitely literate with Radio CLP, the brand new official podcast of Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. You probably already love the popular podcast versions of radio shows like This American Life, The Moth and Radiolab. Maybe you also listen to the ones The New York Times and NPR offer. Well, now you can bring the library straight to your ears with your mp3 player or computer!
Get a professional’s take on your next favorite book with our librarians’ reviews. Hear beloved authors talk about the story behind their books. Listen to words come to life in our poetry readings. Episodes will include excerpts from our entertaining and informative events, like the Sunday Poetry and Reading Series and People’s University lectures. We’ll also feature essays and book reviews by your favorite librarians and occasional collaborations with Eleventh Stack. Some episodes will feature readings and talks from national authors who have visited the library as guests of Writers LIVE @ CLP – Main.
We’ve already made two episodes available: “It’s about a time machine repairman,” Don‘s review of Charles Yu’s novel How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe, and “Time is a goon, right?” Tara‘s review of Jennifer Egan’s Pulitzer prize-winning novel A Visit from the Goon Squad. We’ll upload a new episode every Wednesday. Check us out on iTunes or the Radio CLP page podcast.carnegielibrary.org, and be sure to subscribe so you catch every one. Enjoy!
