Words are like magic. They can hold us under their spell. It’s no wonder the act of forming them is called: spelling! We see them everywhere yet rarely objectively — in books, airports, museums — some make us quiet, others yield applause. Spellbound invites us to talk about our biggest ideas. Hosted by Julian Smith, weekly episodes feature guests from the world of academia, pop-culture, and the arts.
