I’ve been listening to the interviews on Longform over the past week—in between cleaning, working, heading to the gym—and they’ve been so consistently insightful. Here are my favourites so far:
- George Saunders on ‘the long corridor’ and recognising how difficult and time consuming it is to make something great.
- Ta-Nehisi Coates on his book Between the World and Me which I’ve just ordered and cannot wait to dig into. I also checked out an older episode where Ta-Nehisi talks about how “writers can’t assume that their work is going to cause change”.
- Rukmini Callimachi on covering ISIS for the NYT.
