This yearlong series of conversations features some of the most innovative and incisive commentators on culture. This Spring, we focus on the expansion of cultural criticism into new media, genres, and approaches.

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 50 best podcast episodes of 2015. 

Chloe Veltman is senior arts editor at KQED.
