The Slavic Literature Pod

I co-host The Slavic Literature Pod, a shelf-help guide to one of the most important—yet understudied—literary traditions

Three Fridays per month, Cameron Lallana and I dive deep into big books, short stories, film, and everything in between. Listeners get an approachable introduction to the scholarship and big ideas in the Slavic world.

We’ve hosted scholars, translators, and authors to people to provide an enriching and accessible listening experience to our viewers.
