25 Minutes of Silence

john.cage podcasts

I recently discovered the 25 Minutes of Silence podcast and it’s now one of my favourites. Every week the host, Joey Clift, says hello to a guest, and then they don’t talk for twenty-five minutes. You might hear breathing, or pages turning, or tapping on keyboards, or other ambient rooms sounds, but no conversation. Then Clift does a brief wrap-up with the guest and that’s it. Many of the guests are from the comedy world, which I’m not so interested in, but nevertheless they’re all worth listening to. So far my favourite episode is with Laura Kuhn, director of the John Cage Trust.
