New Yorker Talk of the Town

Go To: PodCast Table Subscribe

The New Yorker's "The Talk of the Town" is a miscellany of brief pieces - frequently humorous, whimsical or eccentric vignettes of life in New York - written in a breezily light style, or feuilleton, although in recent years the section often begins with a serious commentary. Carrie Gordon reads you her selections.
