I've decided to revive this blog for reasons that escape me. I'm sure I've typed that sentence out before. (Wie schade.)
What's happened since, what, last April? I joined Hazlitt Magazine and Penguin Random House Canada as their podcast producer. I also oversee their comics section and, on occasion, blog about technology. This brings me to The Arcade, my podcast, the latest episode of which you can sample below.
It's about words, see.
(All will make sense in the coming weeks, I promise. Think of the next few posts as a forensic retracing of the last year. There will be jump cuts, sexy ones.)
On e15 of The Arcade...
- Young, brash, literary. I interview hardcore band Perfect Pussy and discuss the event of text. (Starts 02:05)
- What makes a city happy? Hazlitt editor-in-chief Christopher Frey speaks with award-winning journalist Charles Montgomery about urban design. (Starts 13:57)
- Novelist Gary Shteyngart drops by the Hazlitt Studio to talk about his new memoir, Little Failure. (Starts 21:17)
