I listen to podcasts obsessively. When I’m walking to get my groceries, when I’m driving anywhere. I love them so much that when I get any chance to listen, my heart lifts like a balloon. I can’t believe so much good content is free. It feels like a crime.
One of my favorites is the Longform podcast- which interviews longform journalists about their careers and craft. Last week’s was with Molly Young. I try to read one or two articles by the writer before I listen so that I get an idea of what they’re about and when I started googling Molly, I got a little jealous. She’s 26, been published in big magazines like The Believer, GQ, New York Magazine, n + 1 and on. She does all that while holding down a full time job. Also: her pieces are really fucking good.
