Hello, everyone! I hope you’re finishing up your weekend well and heading into the holidays with great gusto. Here’s what to expect this week on the Jacke Blog.
First, we have some news to share! Our new podcast, The History of Literature, has been selected as a New and Noteworthy podcast on iTunes, and we’re currently listed at #14 (in the Literary Podcasts category). Not bad for our first month!
(And look out Grammar Girl… we’re coming for you!)
You can subscribe to the History of Literature on iTunes or check us out on Stitcher. Or just go to whatever podcast directory/resource you use and type in “History of Literature.” Let us know if we don’t come up!
Need a place to start? Our episode on Homer has been very popular.
On Monday we’ll release our episode on Sappho, where we take a look at a remarkable poet and the amazing society that enabled her to exist. We had our sneak previews of Sappho with our look at What Sappho Really Sounded Like and at Sappho, the Ghost Town of Western Washington.
On Wednesday I’ll be back with a special holiday episode of the Restless Mind Show. Our topic is literature and loneliness.
Also coming soon: a look at a Jacke Wilson Thanksgiving and a special tribute to Buster Keaton. A week from Monday we’ll be back with an episode on Greek Tragedy. Fun times around the Jacke Blog!
What am I thankful for? For you, readers! And for you, listeners! Yes, you! This lowly, humble podcaster (ahem, #14 on iTunes, ding ding ding ding ding, come on Jacke, stay lowly, stay humble) is very grateful for all of your views, clicks, listens, comments, emails, voicemails, and other warm wishes. As I mentioned when we started this whole thing, we are in this together. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Onward and upward!
