Each episode has a different theme in which Ron engages in conversation with another notable person on the topic at hand.

Introducing: Ephemeral

Ephemeral, a documentary podcast by Alex Williams, consists of stories that may be unfamiliar, but the themes are universal; it's a window into our own fragile, material existence that begs the question, “How will I be remembered?” This clip from the "DuMont" episode covers the forgotten network from the Golden Age of television, and features an interview with media historian David Weinstein of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The entire first season of Ephemeral is available now, and learn more at www.ephemeral.show
