In each episode of Passages, we talk to a writer or other public figure about a passage of text of their choice, be that a poem, or an excerpt of prose, of a historical speech, or a set of lyrics.

We want to talk to each guest about a passage that had a formative effect on them, or that they think is important at this point in history, or that they just think is particularly brilliant.
