I can’t concentrate in a studio (or coffee shop) when surrounded by flying words (i.e., interviews or music w/ lyrics) when I am in editing or writing mode, which happens to be the majority of “normal” working hours. In the event, however, I am doing something artful, namely drawing or painting, I listen to podcasts. After finishing Jia Tolentino’s book, Trick Mirror: Reflections on Self-Delusion, I found her press tour interviews. Here is the one I like of her at Vox’s The Ezra Klein Show that condenses her articulate, thought-provoking discourse on the internet as a destructive agent of selfhood. (Full disclosure: she played an editor to my content many moons ago. She wouldn’t haven’t the foggiest idea who I am today. She’s now a New Yorker writer with big ideas to conjure and no peons to edit. She made it.)
