Vox Quick Hits: A daily culture and consumerism podcast

Hear the latest in the world of culture and consumerism in 15 minutes or less.

Welcome to Vox Quick Hits, bite-sized podcasts from the culture and The Goods teams at Vox that go wherever our (and your!) pop culture and consumerism curiosities take us. Hear the stories behind the news and trends, get personal about purchases, and find your next book or binge watch.

We put out five new episodes a week — one every weekday — each of which is 15 minutes or less.

You can Ask a Book Critic what to read next every other Monday. Whether you’re looking for social satires that skewer the rich or a book to read when your attention span is shot, no request goes unexplored. That’s book critic Constance Grady’s guarantee.

The Best Money I Ever Spent is where purchases get personal. In this series, we pass the mic to some of our favorite writers every other Monday to hear the stories behind their most meaningful acquisitions.

Tell Me More digs into the narratives behind the news and trends in our culture — from the internet to business and beyond — every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday with reporters Rebecca Jennings and Emily Stewart, and editor Meredith Haggerty.

Deciding What to Watch can be an overwhelming exercise in choice paralysis. Ditch the recommendation algorithms every Friday and let movie critic Alissa Wilkinson and critic at large Emily VanDerWerff be your guides to the movies and TV shows that are worth your time.

You can find and follow Vox Quick Hits in all the usual podcast places, including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and Spotify. If you’re more of a smart speaker person, you can find us on Google Nest and Home speakers, too. Just say: “Hey/Okay, [you know who], play the Vox Quick Hits podcast.”

Want more bite-sized content from Vox? Recode Daily, hosted by Recode deputy editor Adam Clark Estes and senior reporter Rani Molla, focuses on the people, businesses, and stories in tech that are influencing the rest of the world. Hear a new episode each day, always 15 minutes or less, wherever you listen to podcasts.
