Blogs & Podcasts
Blooms & Barnacles is a blog, podcast, and illustration project celebrating the love of James Joyce’s Ulysses. Hosted by Kelly Bryan (blogger) and Dermot O Connor (illustrator), Blooms & Barnacles takes a non-academic approach, mixing banter and pop culture with historical, cultural, and literary analysis related to Ulysses and most anything Joyce-adjacent, including chats with other amateur Joyce enthusiasts. Hopefully, through Blooms & Barnacles, Ulysses and the work of Joyce can become more accessible to anyone who wants to read it.

Catherine Flynn of Berkeley is assembling a series of podcasts celebrating the 100th anniversary of Ulysses’ publication. It’s early days in the evolution of Ulysses ’22 (the centenary year). Here is what has been revealed to date.
Podcasts construct around the student introduction of an episode and three sets of observations: a researcher, an instructor, and a typical or atypical recreational reader. The podcasts run about one hour in duration. The Telemachus episode was released on June 10 and Nestor on July 5. No anticipated date is posted for the Proteus episode.
