The Subaltern podcast episode 20: Jenn Ashworth

Download the episode

Talking on the phone is a kiiiind of intimacy, right? These pun intros get harder each week, but the interviews get easier, because today’s podcast is with Jenn Ashworth. Let’s get the boring things out of the way first: could listen to her talk forever, so gorgeous is her accent. Also, she’s an amazing writer with loads of important things to say. Actually, that bit’s not boring. It’s kinda relevant. She wrote ‘Cold Light’ and ‘A Kind of Intimacy’.

This week, Jenn and I talk about saving libraries, why Napoleon Dynamite is an impossible film, her love of stationary, regional differences and unreliable narrators.

We talk on the phone – I warn you now, but it’s like the radio interviews of yore. We have a great chat. It’s worth it.

LEAVE ME A COMMENT. The one guy who has done so already is feeling like a lone maverick. I’d love more comments. Come on, let’s take these rival podcasts down!

The Subaltern Podcast – Author Nikesh Shukla talks to other writers and authors and novelists about stuff, from writing to r’n’b. It’s the anti-panel discussion.
