[MOVED] The Vulture TV Podcast

There’s little doubt that TV is driving the cultural conversation, but there could still stand to be more great conversation about TV. That’s where the Vulture TV Podcast comes in. In this weekly podcast, New York TV critic Matt Zoller Seitz, Vulture TV columnist Margaret Lyons, and Vulture TV editor Gazelle Emami will go deep on what matters most the world of television, what makes good TV, and how good TV gets made. Their conversation could, and will, encompass everything from the hot-button points of a given show—did you see what happened on Mad Men?—to a discussion of TV’s new diversity boom (Black-ish, Shondaland, Jane the Virgin). Our TV reporter Joe Adalian will also come on as a guest to talk about the business of TV. Other segments might include discussions with showrunners and writers, looks back at beloved and/or underappreciated TV shows, and segments where our experts respond to listener questions. It’ll be sharp, funny, and unique—in true Vulture fashion. Part of the Panoply Network.
