Where To Listen

On this episode:

  • Golf: an investment and a battle with the unknown.
  • David Foster Wallace: "For reasons that are not well understood, war’s codes are safer for most of us than love’s."
  • What has been lost in the sport of college football.
  • Lisel Mueller, from Still Things:

Think of the time the words

in a book you had not read

for thirty years flew out

and stung you, fierce and sudden

in the plenitude of their truth,

or of the black piano,

a darkness that has no music

until it is touched and you are stunned

by your own desire.
