In 2018, I published the first episode of The Book Light, a podcast dedicated to illuminating classic works of literature. The idea for the podcast came from my teaching. I was looking for media outside of traditional readings to engage students with texts and give them key contexts to bring into the classroom. Each episode seeks to familiarize listeners with texts/authors and teach key literary concepts, while sharing insights from scholarly experts.
