‘Jaywalking’ – an Audio Version of Impromptus, by Jay Nordlinger
< 1 day ago
Jay began his Impromptus column in 2001. It is a potpourri of a column, covering politics, foreign affairs, language, music, and a lot more. Now he is starting a podcast version of it, called "Jaywalking." This podcast will feature extra touches as well - such as the playing of music.
In fact, he begins this inaugural episode with some impromptus - some piano pieces by Schubert, Fauré, and Chopin. He goes on with talk about Roy Moore, Sweden, and an Israeli judo star. He tells an old joke, on the bawdy side. And he ends with what he calls "pretty much the best thing on earth" - a song, a spiritual, in a transcendent performance from 1975.
Note: We're putting the first episode of Jaywalking in the Q & A feed so all of Jay's listeners receive it. Starting with the nest episode, the show will have its own feed.
