In commemoration of the 700th anniversary of Dante's death, the Dante Society is collaborating with New York University's Department of Italian Studies and Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò to produce podcast conversations about all 100 cantos of the Divine Comedy. The podcasts are available as YouTube videos, hosted and archived by NYU and the Dante Society of America. Episodes are released on Mondays and Wednesdays, though not necessarily in numerical order.
