How to Proceed with George Saunders

A new episode in our podcast with Linn Ullmann

Is loss of literature a political force? Yes, says George Saunders.
In this episode, he talks about Trump, civility and the public discourse of our time. On Kindness and Meanness. On form and revision. Voice, memory and empathy, and of course about the living and the dead.

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