Talking About: Pod Save America

A little while back, I mentioned a podcast called Pod Save America. When I mentioned it, I was specifically talking about it, but I did say I needed to check it out. I have done that, and so I am sharing today my thoughts on podcast. Since it I am discussing a podcast, I decided to share my thoughts in audio form.

For those of you not inclined to sit through my blathering, here is a overview of what I had to say:

‘Bride’ yields journalistic quote

The other night my wife was watching “Runaway Bride.” The movie didn’t do much for me, but I did like the idea a journalist was a main character. As I was half listening to the film while doing homework, I heard the journalist Ike Graham (played by Richard Gere) say this:

Journalism is literature in a hurry.

That struck me. I always like journalism-related quotes, and, since I teach American Literature to high school juniors, it seemed even more significant to my world.

Of course, I thought it was just part of the script, but I did a quick Internet search anyway. Turns out, it is real. English poet Matthew Arnold said it.

I just thought I would share it. Hopefully you enjoy it like it did.
