Episode 376: Kevin Kelly
Kevin Kelly is a writer and a founding executive editor of Wired Magazine. He is the author of What Technology Wants, Out of Control and The Inevitable: Understanding the Twelve Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future. “I always try to write about the future—and it became harder and harder because things would catch up so fast. If you read Out of Control now, I’ve heard that people say, ‘well, this is obvious.’ I have to tell you, it was dismissed as entirely pie-in-the-sky, wild-eyed craziness twenty-five years ago.” Thanks to Mailchimp and Pitt Writers for sponsoring this week's episode. kk.org @kevin2kelly [08:54] CoEvolution Quarterly [09:06] “Low-Rent Himalayas” (CoEvolution Quarterly • 1981) [pdf] [18:06] “Information as a Communicable Disease” (CoEvolution Quarterly • 1984) [pdf] [22:30] sci-hub.tw [28:28] Cool Tools: A Catalog of Possibilities (Cool Tools Lab • 2013) [31:31] Whole Earth Software Catalog and Review [48:08] Out of Control: The New Biology of Machines, Social Systems, and the Economic World (Basic Books • 1995) [48:19] “New Rules for the New Economy: Twelve Dependable Principles for Thriving in a Turbulent World” (Wired • 1997) [48:23] New Rules for the New Economy: Ten Radical Strategies for a Connected World (Penguin • 1999)
Episode 375: Katherine Eban
Katherine Eban is an investigative journalist and contributing writer at Fortune Magazine. Her new book is Bottle of Lies: The Inside Story of the Generic Drug Boom. “I am not known for my optimism. I think it’s hard to do this work and retain a sunny view of humankind. I hate to say that. On the other hand, I do believe there will always be whistleblowers. And it’s interesting to me that even in the darkest spaces, even when it looks like everything is arrayed against them, there are people who will say: ‘This just isn’t right, and I must do something.’ Which is kind of extraordinary.” Thanks to Mailchimp and Pitt Writers for sponsoring this week's episode. katherineeban.com @KatherineEban [08:00] “Bellevue's Emergency” (New York Times Magazine • 1996) [08:42] “Corrections Officials See Medical Neglect of Rikers Prisoners” (Observer • 1998) [08:44] “Complaints Prompt Scrutiny of St. Barnabas Hospital” (Observer • 1998) [12:04] Bottle of Lies: The Inside Story of the Generic Drug Boom (Ecco • 2019) [12:28] “Rorschach and Awe” (Vanity Fair • 2007) [19:23] The Report (2019) [21:25] Dangerous Doses: A True Story of Cops, Counterfeiters, and the Contamination of America’s Drug Supply (Ecco • 2019) [25:18] “Pharmacy Fakes” (Self • 2006) [41:28] “Dirty Medicine” (Fortune • 2013) [43:10] “Centre Mulling Action to Counter US Journalist's Allegations About Indian Pharma” (The Wire • 2020) [45:24] “The Truth About the Fast and Furious Scandal” (Fortune • 2012) [48:09] Eban's guide to investigating your own drugs [48:15] Eban's FAQs
Episode 374: Cord Jefferson
Cord Jefferson is a journalist turned television writer whose credits include Succession, The Good Place, and Watchmen. “I’m a fearful person. I’m afraid of a lot of things. I’m afraid of how people perceive me, I’m afraid of hurting myself, I’m afraid of heights. I’m afraid of a lot. Bravery does not come naturally to me. But the moments when I feel like I’ve done the best in my life and been the proudest of myself are when I’ve overcome that fear to do something that scares me.” Thanks to Mailchimp, Pitt Writers, and Squarespace for sponsoring this week's episode. @cordjefferson cordjefferson.tumblr.com Longform Podcast #61: Cord Jefferson Jefferson on Longform [01:55] “Video of Violent, Rioting Surfers Shows White Culture of Lawlessness” (Gawker • 2013) [02:02] “Cord Jefferson, Chris Hayes Ask What White Community Will Do About ‘White Criminal Culture’ (VIDEO)” (HuffPost • 2013) [10:05] “Manti Te'o's Dead Girlfriend, The Most Heartbreaking And Inspirational Story Of The College Football Season, Is A Hoax” (Deadspin • 2013) [22:58] The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore (2015-2016) [29:50] Master of None [29:55] The Good Place [29:57] Watchmen [29:59] Succession [30:05] “Mackenzie Davis & Himesh Patel To Star In ‘Station Eleven’ HBO Max Limited Series” (Deadline • 2019) [59:31] “Don't Stop Running: A Case for Trying” (The Awl • 2012)
Episode 311: Jerry Saltz, art critic at "New York"
Jerry Saltz is a Pulitzer-winning art critic for New York. “To this day I wake up early and I have to get to my desk to write almost immediately. I mean fast. Before the demons get me.

I’m not part of the world except when I go to see shows.” Thanks to MailChimp and Pitt Writers for sponsoring this week's episode. @jerrysaltz Saltz on Instagram Saltz on Longform Saltz's archive at New York Magazine
Episode 313: Liana Finck, author of "Excuse Me" and "Passing for Human"
Liana Finck, a cartoonist and illustrator, contributes to The New Yorker and is the author of Excuse Me and Passing for Human. "I was drawing since I was 10 months old. My mom had left this vibrant community of architects and art people to live in this idyllic country setting with my dad, and she poured all of her art feelings into me. She really praised me for being this baby genius, which I may or may not have been. But I grew up thinking I was an amazing artist. There weren’t any other artists around besides my mom, so I didn’t have anything to compare it to. There were no art classes around. … I was so shy, so I was just always drawing and making things."
