Arts + Design Mondays: Radio, Podcast, and Contemporary Cultural Criticism, with John Horn and Glynn Washington

John Horn is host of KPCC’s The Frame, a daily arts and entertainment program. He has covered culture for nearly thirty years, including serving for over a decade at the Los Angeles Times as lead writer on the film industry.

Glynn Washington is host and executive producer of Snap Judgment on National Public Radio. The show’s podcasts have received widespread acclaim, with the episode “Unforgiven” named by the Atlantic as one of the fifty best podcast episodes of 2015.

The conversation is moderated by Ben Manilla, who teaches at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. An audio producer, he has received some of the field’s highest honors, including the Peabody Award.

This event is part of The Future of Cultural Criticism, a series featuring some of the most innovative and incisive commentators on culture, with a focus on the expansion of cultural criticism into new media, genres, and approaches. Sponsored by the Townsend Center for the Humanities, the Arts + Design Initiative, the Arts Research Center, Digital Humanities, and the Art of Writing program at UC Berkeley.
