Interviews & Reviews

I’ve been interviewing authors and reviewing books for 4+ years. Here are some examples of my work. 


Interview Series

Learning How to Reading (2015 – present) — Interviews with writers who organize/host readings, focusing on the why and how of literary event programming. Guests include Kristen Arnett, Jim Ruland, and Penina Roth.  See all episodes here. 


Weekly Reader (KMSU 89.7) (2015 – 2018) — Author-interview radio show featuring acclaimed and emerging poets and prose writers, such as Hanif Abdurraquib, Scott McLanahan, Kaveh Akbar, and Amelia Grey. See all episodes here.


Show Your Work (2017) — This podcast is something I conceptualized, produced, edited, and published myself. Show Your Work is a short literary podcast featuring authors of very short prose. In their own words, authors explain the myriad choices they made to create a single beautiful piece of writing. At the end, they read the piece in full.
