The Organist is an experimental arts and culture podcast from award-winning independent publisher McSweeney’s. We find our subjects not on the star-studded boulevards, but in the back alleys that connect them. We uncover the unexpected connections between artists and ideas..
How did 1960s luminaries of comedy and the avant garde shape advertising? How does surveillance intersect with contemporary art? How are our fears about cyborgs shaped by colonial narratives in science fiction?
We’re interested in the ways that we see and hear the world, the way perception itself works.
The Organist features in-depth literary coverage, innovative approaches to audio storytelling, short-form comedy, audio dramas, as well as writers and artists tackling politics, disabilities, and more.
Contributors and guests on the show have included Nick Offerman, Greta Gerwig, Tommy Pico, Meshell Ndegeocello, St. Vincent, Kyle Mooney, Neko Case, George Saunders, Tig Notaro, Greil Marcus, David Cross, Sarah Silverman, and Harmony Korine.
