About Particular Good Podcast
The Particular Good podcast is focused on literature, theology, and philosophy. Our title is inspired by St. Thomas, who said humans by nature are made for particular goods. Elif Batumann, novelist and literary critic, pictures writers as bookkeepers keeping a double-ledger of life and literature, looking at people and objects in life and on pages and saying: what is it?
On the Particular Good podcast, our goal is to take out the ledger, pay attention, and pursue truth in its particular good.
