See what Minnesota Monthly had to say about our podcasts in their "Best of the Twin Cities issue!

"The University of Minnesota attracts dozens of notable authors every year for readings, from David Sedaris to Garrison Keillor to Siri Hustvedt. But you don't have to make the drive to enjoy them: The university records the talks and offers free podcasts through its website and iTunes. Listen to them at the gym or in the car and see if you aren't a little wiser and happier at the end of the hour. If only the rest of our iPod playlists could do that."
