Journalist, cultural critic, R.E.M. fan for life.

Pod City: ‘StartUp,’ ‘The Canon,’ and More of This Week's Most Interesting Podcasts — This new podcast examines films and tries to determine if they're classics that belong in, yep, "The Canon." Hosts Devin Faraci and Amy Nicholson are sharply divided on this Indy sequel-he loves it, she hates it-but both find it intriguing that the esteemed critic wrote a glowing review.

Stream Baby Stream: Where Can My Kid Learn To Draw? — Lately I've read several interviews with Devo co-founder Mark Mothersbaugh, whose huge archive of visual art is currently on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver. "If it's three in the morning and I didn't do any drawings all day, I have to wake up and do it," he told Studio 360 host Kurt Andersen.

Stream Baby Stream: Happy Stop-Motion Halloween! — Many of us grew up watching Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Comin' to Town and other holiday classics, even if we were born a decade or two after they were made. But back in 1967, the same folks behind these stop-motion specials released a Halloween flick - and I adore it just as much.

Stream Baby Stream: ‘Sid’ And Other Stream-Worthy Science Kids — I had several great science teachers growing up, but I'll never forget my first: Mr. Slim Goodbody. Maybe he's not a household name now, but when I was a kid, Slim was an icon of children's television. Clad in a skintight beige unitard painted with human organs, he spoke and sang about digestion, brain function, blood and glands.

The Playboy Library: The T.A.M.I. Show — The movies and TV you need to watch, the music you need to hear, the books and comics you need to read, the games you need to play - The Playboy Library is an ongoing series that offers the 21st century man the pop ammunition to carry himself as a gentleman of culture.
