One of my favorite podcasts is Colin Marshall’s “The Marketplace of Ideas,” a roughly weekly interview show featuring cultural figures of various kinds, mostly authors and academics. Marshall is an excellent interviewer, always well prepared and full of curiosity about his subjects, and he has featured many great guests over the years. I have personally been led to many different books I would never have encountered because of the show. Last week, Marshall interviewed the Korean film critic Darcy Paquet about his new book, “New Korean Cinema: Breaking the Waves” (my own review of that book is here). Marshall proved himself to be very well versed in Korean film, and the nearly hour long conversation is a great place to start for those new to Korean film as well as being in-depth enough for those already with a background. The link to the interview is available here. Also be sure to at least check out some other episodes as well; unlike many podcasts, it is well worth the time.
