The Image Podcast will relaunch April 1, 2019. We’ll be doing what Image does best: exploring the terrain at the intersection of art and faith.

Host Jessica Mesman will talk with poets, writers, filmmakers, musicians, and visual artists who grapple with the mystery at the heart of religious experience.

Our new season will feature eight new episodes, including conversations with Image editor in chief James K.A. Smith, art historian Katie Kresser, novelists R.O. Kwon and Chigozie Obioma, and more—plus original music by Sister Sinjin.

Episode 12: Inside the Flannery Issue

If you’ve been keeping up with us here at Image, you know that our fall issue featured the never-before-published college journal of Flannery O’Connor entitled “Higher Mathematics.” On a special episode of our podcast, Gregory Wolfe sits down with Mark Bosco, SJ, who was instrumental in the publication of “Higher Mathematics,”and is in the midst of producing a documentary about Flannery that is set to premiere in February. Sit back and enjoy this conversation with Mark, as well as a brief reading from the journal itself. If you want to read the journal in full, you can purchase Issue 94 here, or subscribe to Image here.
