I started a new podcast back February about biographies, cleverly called The Biography Podcast. It comes out twice a month a focuses on recent biographies. I wanted to have multiple episodes out before I started to do some promotion, but the most recent one has (kind of ) a Williamstown connection. It is with Shawn Levy, the film critic for The Oregonian, talking about his latest biography, Paul Newman: A Life. I am not sure if Paul ever did the Williamstown Theater Festival, but I know his wife, Joanne Woodward, appeared in several plays there. Previous shows have focused on everyone from the Victorian architect Auguste Pugin to the strip tease artist Gypsy Rose Lee to the guiding force behind The Wall Street Journal, Barney Kilgore.

Anyway, hope you like it. Tell your friends!
