Three Percent #11: I Drink a Lot More Coffee and I'm More Jaded
This week, instead of listening to me and Tom pontificate about literary matters far and wide, we decided to change things up a bit and find out what our summer interns have been up to. With Nathan Furl standing in for Tom, we talk to Taylor McCabe (left, drinking diet soda) and Lily Ye (right, carrying two backpacks filled with literary work) about what it’s like working at Open Letter and the projects they’ve been slaving away at all summer. (Spoiler: Taylor’s been working on the “Best of Three Percent” ebook, and Lily’s in charge of Read This Next.)
Both have interesting things to say and good jokes to make, so I think you’ll enjoy this as much—if not more so—that our usual fare.
Quick notes: As mentioned at the end of the podcast, we’d like to do a special “mailbag” episode in a couple weeks, so please send in any comments or questions you might have. And we can range far and wide on this, so anything you want us to talk about—translation fees, Spanish wine, women’s professional soccer (seriously, I’m a junky)—just let me know at chad.post[at]rochester.edu.
This week’s music is As Serious As Your Life by Four Tet. If it were up to me, we would have a podcast just featuring all my favorite Four Tet songs . . . “My Angel Rocks Back and Forth,” “Unspoken,” “Everything Is Alright,” “This Unfolds” . . .
