About the station

Coffee and Books podcast is hosted by Marc Lamont Hill, a noted author, social commentator, professor, and owner of a coffee shop and bookstore in Philadelphia named Uncle Bobbie’s Coffee & Books. In each episode he chats with authors and prominent public figures who share the backstory behind their latest book. An organic conversation that flows naturally from the book at hand, through the writer’s journey, and of course, the author’s own taste in books. The tone is curious and smart, informal and enlightening - covering everything from Malcolm X to Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret.
