The Inkling Podcast
About This Show
The podcast is an audio-essay in three parts: an Editorial, where we’ll give our spin on the episode’s theme, a Feature, an in-depth discussion on the theme, and a Pull Quote, where we’ll draw on texts related to that theme. The episode's theme will bring together two of our previous essays, which we’ll announce the week before we air.
