Bloomcast │Episode 1│Telemachus, Nestor, and Proteus Welcome to Bloomcast, a ten-part plunge into James Joyce's Ulysses presented by Adam Biles, Alice McCrum, and Lex Paulson, live from Shakespeare and Company bookshop in Paris.

Here is episode one, in which they discuss: the reasons to read Ulysses (and how not to); Joyce's ambitions, gifts, and wiles; the historical, cultural, and biographical context of the novel; the women that brought his epic to life; as well as the first three episodes of the novel,, featuring Stephen Dedalus, Buck Mulligan, William Shakespeare, Leo Taxil, and the most famous nose-picking in Western literature.  Please share your thoughts on the book and anything you’d like to hear us discuss: ulysses@shakespeareandcompany.com A student of environmental policy at Sciences Po-Paris, Alice McCrum runs programming at the American Library in Paris.  In between fits of Joycean nerdery, Dr. Lex Paulson is Executive Director of the School of Collective Intelligence at Université Mohammed VI Polytechnique in Morocco. An adopted Parisian, he teaches at Sciences Po-Paris and writes on the past and future of democracy. Adam Biles is Literary Director at Shakespeare and Company, Paris.
