Our Show Today Is Really Five Short, Little Shows

We live in an "Everything Should Take Twenty Minutes" world. Movies are too long. SundanceTV has a show that airs in 10-minute episodes. Tierra Whack has a 15-minute album made of fifteen 60-second songs. Todd Rundgren's memoir has 183 one-page, three-paragraph chapters.

So today, we turn our hour over to five short, little shows about short, little things.

Here's a Spotify playlist of the albums reviewed on today's short, little episode of The Sam Hadelman Show.


  • Carmen Baskauf - Produces Where We Live on Connecticut Public Radio
  • Taneisha Duggan - Artistic producer at TheaterWorks
  • Sam Hadelman - Host of The Sam Hadelman Show at Radio Free Brooklyn
  • Brandy Jensen - An advice columnist and editor at The Outline
  • Jacques Lamarre - A playwright, and director of client services at Buzz Engine
  • Vince Mancini - Senior film and culture writer for Uproxx
  • Chion Wolf - Host of Audacious with Chion Wolf on Connecticut Public Radio
  • Bill Yousman - Professor of media studies at Sacred Heart University

Colin McEnroe, Eugene Amatruda, and Matt Farley contributed to this show, which originally aired July 18, 2019.

Jonathan is a producer for ‘The Colin McEnroe Show.’ His work has been heard nationally on NPR and locally on Connecticut Public’s talk shows and news magazines. He’s as likely to host a podcast on minor league baseball as he is to cover a presidential debate almost by accident.
