ESQUIRE magazine has launched a bi-weekly podcast via PRX highlighting classic non-fiction stories from the publication's 82-year history.
"ESQUIRE CLASSIC," hosted by DAVID BRANCACCIO and produced by CURTIS FOX, has launched with a three-episode pilot run starting with a show looking at TOM JUNOD's 2003 article "Falling Man," the story of the photo of an anonymous man falling from the World Trade Center on 9/11. The other pilot episodes examine F. SCOTT FITZGERALD's 1936 "The Crack-Up" and NORA EPHRON's 1972 "A Few Words About Breasts."
“PRX is dedicated to bringing audiences the most engaging stories from the world’s best storytellers,” said PRX's JAKE SHAPIRO. “For more than 80 years, ESQUIRE has set the standard for publishing work that shapes our culture and conversation. We are thrilled to join ESQUIRE in shedding new light on these fascinating and timeless stories.”
“It is amazing how deftly PRX and DAVID BRANCACCIO explore and exploit what can make a story into something that stands the test of time,” said ESQUIRE Editor-in-Chief DAVID GRANGER. “With the launch of ESQUIRE CLASSIC, the complete digital archive of the magazine, we’ve been working to make the past not just present but urgent. PRX is the best partner we could have in this venture.”
