What is the coolest Eph website that you haven’t been to? ThoughtCast, by Jenny Attiyeh ’87. (Thanks to Sean Denniston ’87 for the tip.)

Welcome to ThoughtCast, a podcast and public radio interview program on authors, academics and intellectuals. I’m Jenny Attiyeh. ThoughtCast offers something that is glaringly absent from the media today: a bridge between the publications and pursuits of the intellectual world and a curious, informed, mainstream audience.

By providing detailed, unhurried and personal conversation with current writers and thinkers, ThoughtCast is that rare hybrid: a show that is both informative and entertaining – a synergy between mass media and the ivory tower. Think of it as “Terry Gross comes to Harvard.”

Interesting. But where is the Eph undergraduate who wants to do the same thing for Williams? Matt Piven ’07 can’t do everything himself! And he still doesn’t podcast . . .
