Rachel Zucker is a writer based in New York City. Rachel’s podcast Commonplace: Conversations with Poets (and Other People) is one of my favorite literary shows, a show that has deeply influenced my approach to podcasting. In our conversation, Rachel and I talked about Commonplace and her 2014 book The Pedestrians, how each of us approach hosting a conversational podcast, and writing as a form of self-castigation.

(Conversation recorded July 18, 2019.)

Bonus Reading: Subscribers to the KTCO Patreon campaign can hear Rachel read her poem “Pedestrian,” which we discussed in the episode.
