Here’s the gist:
…there’s been a new entry. Other People Podcast by Brad Listi. Brad is from The Nervous Breakdown and does it right. He talks to novelists about writing. He talks about their personal quirks. He touches a bit on their books, but if you’ve never read their books, you can still hang. Instead Listi brings personality to writers, whether it’s getting at Emma Straub’s baked goods habit, Jonathan Evison’s toilet habits or Blake Butler’s insomnia habit.
I started with Other People on Blake Butler’s episode, became enchanted, found some other writers I knew, and am now moving over to the writers I don’t know, just because Brad uncovers all types of literary life marginalia that brings comfort to us amateurs who wonder if we’re doing it right.
