Bill Moyers & Company

How could I have missed the simple fact that the great Bill Moyers has resumed regular broadcasts, programs of interviews, programs containing readings of poetry by the poets who create it and by other poets, a clearer and less hostile but still incisive understanding of American politics, and Dog only knows what other good things!

Videos of whole shows and individual segments are linked from the main page. If your system coughs and sputters on Vimeo videos as badly as mine does, try the podcasts; Moyers and his guests are scarcely diminished by being hidden from view. Here’s a segment (video or audio) that I just listened to, with Kathleen Hall Jamieson on political ads (including a parody ad from flackcheck.org) and the mesmerizing poet Rita Dove, reading works from her new anthology of American poetry, including at least one of her own works. Treat yourself to an informative and moving hour of video or audio!

    Isn’t it delicious! Rita Dove was mesmerizing. What comfort there is knowing that such brilliance still exists in this country so tied into the drek of reality TV and it’s usual journalistic equivalents.
