Reading Lives Podcast, #1: Clive Thompson
Reading Lives is an interview podcast with interesting people who love books. This episode originally aired back in September as the very first Reading Lives, and I am running it again for reasons that are explained in the introduction to the episode.
My guest on this episode is Clive Thompson, a longtime contributing writer for The New York Times, writer for Wired, and author of Smarter Than You Think: How Technology is Changing Our Lives for the Better. This episode is sponsored by The Books-A-Million Father’s Day Guide and Matched by Ally Condie.
