I’m on BBC World Service’s “The Arts Hour” again this Sunday, March 4th

Also appearing with me and host Nikki Bedi is Icelandic performance artist Ragnar Kjartansson, who is extremely cool and interesting. We’ll be talking about Oscar nominees I, Tonya and Lady Bird, K-pop and superfandom, and a lot more.

As always, this episode of “The Arts Hour” will air several times between Sunday and Monday, and will be available on iPlayer anytime after the first broadcast. Unlike BBC TV programs, the radio stuff is available globally, so you can listen no matter where you are. The episode page with all the info you need is here.

Good fun, thanks! (And yeah, I’m another person recommending The Good Place – though it’s also one of the few shows where I think it’s worth not reading about it in advance.)

Two seasons in, The Good Place is still forkin’ amazing. And yeah, it’s best to go into it fresh.

The fact that bookstores are using the show to promote their philosophy books, and that the show has boosted the Amazon ranking of What We Owe to Each Other (Chidi’s favorite), is pretty great too.

A librarian in Chicago, Betsy Bird, saw that picture and was inspired to make a Chidi’s Choice book display.


I’m hoping it turns into a national trend.

I’ve discovered that, if I watch enough episodes of The Good Place, I start to dream about the show.
