Shut Up and Listen - Issue #4
By Justine Goode • Issue #4 • View online

A letter about every podcast I listened to this week.

It’s Labor Day weekend (did u know?), which means at this very moment, you are hopefully beach-adjacent with a very large cocktail in hand, or otherwise aggressively relaxing.
With that in mind, I’ll cut to the chase. Highlights of the week included binging a new favorite podcast, The Taste; listening to one of my favorite authors, Olivia Laing (The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone), discuss failure; and discovering that Oscar Isaac’s band once opened for Green Day.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
