Critics at Large is a weekly culture podcast from The New Yorker. Every Thursday, the staff writers Vinson Cunningham, Naomi Fry, and Alexandra Schwartz discuss current obsessions, classic texts they’re revisiting with fresh eyes, and trends that are emerging across books, television, film, and more. The show runs the gamut of the arts and pop culture, with lively, surprising conversations about everything from Salman Rushdie to “The Real Housewives.” Through rigorous analysis and behind-the-scenes insights into The New Yorker’s reporting, the magazine’s critics help listeners make sense of our moment—and how we got here.

  • Please stop talking over each other

    I like the hosts and find the topics and convo interesting. Talking over other people is a personal pet peeve; would give 5 starts if not for that.

  • I like it, but

    This podcast has the potential to be really good, but the hosts HAVE to stop talking over each other. Hoping this smooths out over time. But right now, episodes feel like a platform to prove how clever they are instead of a conversation.
