Culturetopia: Magical Mystery Edition

Culturetopia logo

This week's podcast of some of our favorite arts stories includes an interview with film critic/master of social media Roger Ebert. Ebert happens to have also provided commentary on the new Blu-ray DVD of Citizen Kane, released and reviewed on the occasion of the film's 70th anniversary. We've also got a profile of artist Tim Okamura, whose latest exhibition celebrates African-American women in New York City (and boasts a perfect title "Bronx Brooklyn Queens").

Also, a look at a buzzy first novel, The Night Circus, that's poised to capture fantasy fiction fans wondering what to do while waiting for the next season of Game of Thrones. (I'm among them.) And a visit to a Borders bookstore where customers making purchases will not have the opportunity for returns.
