Ep. 28: Jia Tolentino on Writing + Cooking
Jia Tolentino is a staff writer for The New Yorker and her new book of essays, Trick Mirror, is about to come out in August. Before writing for The New Yorker, Jia worked as a deputy editor at Jezebel and a contributing editor at the Hairpin. Jia and Julia talked about writing, real life versus online and print versus digital, how she learned to cook when she was in the Peace Corps., the role of cooking in her life now, a bit about her new book and her anticipation of it being out in the word. There are also answers to listeners' questions and a shoutout to Make the Road NY. Follow-up links: To learn more about Jia's and her work and her new book (and to order it!), head here.
