American Icons: The Tales of Edgar Allan Poe

Logo of public radio show and podcast "Studio 360," produced by WNYC and Public Radio International

Edgar Allan Poe’s stories are so familiar they’ve become part of our cultural wallpaper. A raven croaking “nevermore?” An enemy bricked up in a cellar? A heart beating under the floorboards? These images are the stuff of our collective nightmares, but Poe dreamed them all up first.

For Studio 360’s American Icons series, I produced this hour about Poe’s tales and the long shadow they’ve cast over popular culture. You can listen to the episode here or on Apple Podcasts.
