Listen to the episode

Writer and critic Rand Richards Cooper, right, on a rant against obsessive smart phone use. He’s joined by Andrew Chatfield, Wesleyan’s arts communication director, whose new show on WESU, “The Center for the Arts Radio Hour,” can be heard every Thursday at 4 p.m.

Rand is a film critic and contributing editor at the the Catholic journal Commonweal,  as well as a columnist and restaurant reviewer at Hartford Magazine. Here are links to some of Rand’s journalistic “jeremiads” on the subject of smart phones:
