AbstractTaking Jamie Loftus’s Lolita Podcast“ (2020-21) as an example, this article investigates negotiations of reading in the podcast as a digital medium—a topic that has not received a lot of scholarly attention so far. Expanding on the theoretical concept of the podcast as a bridging medium, the article examines the reading practices Lolita Podcast uses and reproduces in its discussion of Vladimir Nabokov’s famous and controversial novel Lolita“ (1955). The article studies how the podcast negotiates boundaries and builds bridges between reading practices traditionally seen as separate, such as critical and uncritical reading.
