Introducing SHE'S A TALKER, a podcast in which visual artist Neil Goldberg talks with some of his favorite New Yorkers (and former New Yorkers and New Yorkers at heart) about the everyday and overlooked. In this trailer, you’ll hear excerpts from comedians John Early and Naomi Ekperigin, poet Annie Lanzillotto, and Harvard professor of race and gender studies Robert Reid-Pharr. Subscribe now, and episodes will appear in your feed every Friday starting October 25, when the podcast launches. Enjoy!

About the Host: Neil Goldberg is an artist in NYC who makes work that The New York Times has described as “tender, moving and sad but also deeply funny.” His work is in the permanent collection of MoMA and other museums, he’s a Guggenheim Fellow, and teaches at the Yale School of Art.

About the Title: SHE'S A TALKER was the name of Neil’s first video project. “One night in the early 90s I was combing my roommate’s cat and found myself saying the words ‘She’s a talker.’ I wondered how many other other gay men in NYC might be doing the exact same thing at that very moment. With that, I set out on a project in which I videotaped over 80 gay men in their living room all over NYC, combing their cats and saying ‘She’s a talker.’” A similar spirit of NYC-centric curiosity and absurdity animates the podcast.
