The Office Hour, Chapter 17: The New Yorker

This week on the podcast, Toby and I talk about The New Yorker magazine––which I happen to be teaching an English 1102 course about this semester. Along the way, Toby shares a cartoon by Tom Toro and reads from “Sadness Lamp F.A.Q.” by Sarah Hutto (both of which can be found in the March 13, 2017 issue), and I reference Ben Yagoda’s About Town: The New Yorker and the World It Made, as well as Rea Irvin’s original Eustace Tilley cover of the magazine.

The podcast can be played using the embedded player above or downloaded as an mp3 file.
