This is my new obsession, a podcast about what it was like to be at the college Donna Tartt went to, which was also the college Bret Easton Ellis went to, and Jonathan Lethem.
I’ve listened to the first episode, loved it. Lili Anolik has written a lot of journalism about Hollywood and LA (I have her book on Eve Babtiz), and also wrote an Esquire piece about the Bennington Gen X lit set of the mid-to late ’80s:
The Secret Oral History of Bennington: The 1980s’ Most Decadent College
Once upon a time… at Bennington College

Okay, on that podcast IMMEDIATELY.
Oh this sort of thing is right up my alley and I’m about to travel to Europe. On the list! 😀
