Author Nikesh Shukla talks to writers, comedians, musicians, journalists and actors about writing, laughing, singing, commenting, acting. This is the anti-Q&A - a freewheeling, sometimes irreverent (don't you hate the word irreverent) conversation that covers everything from r'n'b to writing to books to zombies. Subaltern: persons socially, politically and geographically outside the hegemonic power structure.

Yo. I've been listening to your show while slope mowing blackberry bushes, scotch broom and waist high grass in an affluent community outside of Seattle. It has been a pleasure listening to these interviews. I like the clinking of glass in the background, the rambling digressions and the clunky transitions. I hope you continue. The hype-man like beginnings of each show is a nice touch. As a writer who rarely speaks with other writers, your conversations and their informality have been transportative (not a word). Thanks.

Keep going!

Rank #2: Episode 55: Akhil Sharma

Podcast cover

Welcome to season 4 of The Subaltern podcast. It's the final one. And before we go, I have the lost episodes (interviews I recorded between May and July) to release. Look, one of the reasons I'm letting this one go is because free content is just as time-consuming to produce as other stuff and the book thing has got me so extremely busy. Sorry. So, if you've enjoyed any of these free 55 episodes, please consider supporting me by buying a copy of my new novel Meatspace. So to the whole podcast - Akhil Sharma wrote my favourite book so far this year, Family Life. It's heartwrenching and brilliant and sad and weird and funny and utterly brilliant. I urge you to read it. We chat about the length of time a novel takes, the questions you always get asked, what he did the night before a major cover story review was out and whether he enjoys being defined by his race... The Subaltern Podcast - Author Nikesh Shukla talks to other writers and authors and novelists about writing, about their interests. It's the anti-panel discussion. It's a conversation. With writers. About writing. Add us on iTunes, on Stitcher, on Podomatic. Download, comment, like, tweet, tell your friends, forward to a friend, subscribe. We've got thirty more episodes for you this year.

'Meatspace' (The Friday Project) by Nikesh Shukla is out now.

The author of 'Dept of Speculation' likes gossip magazines, wonders why aliens like rutting and has made up everything she says about her new book on the spot. Also, she isn't on Twitter because she likes it too much. This is my interview with Jenny Offill over Skype. We talk about rewriting, the change in the books landscape over the last ten years and how to pronounce her surname (I still get it wrong). I talk about my favourite headlines, condemn tabloids and namedrop stories about Junot Diaz.
