How To Proceed – with Ali Smith

Our very first episode is out!

In our very first episode, Linn Ullmann talks to the Scottish author Ali Smith about her seasonal quartet, about hope and despair, language and form, Shakespeare and writing companions, and about why migration is the story of our time. Plus we get a very first sneak peek into the forthcoming Summer.

Music by Kingocito and Sandra Kolstad. Artwork by Julius Vidarsønn Langhoff.
